Thankfully, our Constitution has recognized the right of individual citizens to bear arms. Many states allow residents to carry handguns on their person. These are all good rights, that I support. However, simply because I can carry a handgun in the state of New Hampshire does not mean I should do so near a Presidential appearance while carrying a sign that vaguely (at best) insinuates assassination.
Bloggers at right wing sites like Hot Air and Ace of Spades have already condemned this guy. I wanted to do the same. He may have had the right, but common sense would tell you that exercising that right in the situation and circumstances he did, is an idiotic, provocative and counter-productive thing to do.
