    Assuming carrying a gun in a government building were not a felony and someone actually did this, then I would say that the purpose of carrying a gun is not for you to even ask. How dare you assume you have a right to know.

    Where was his truck?

    Re: New Acorn Video Scandal Emerges- Employee Asks For Sex

    I seem to remember someone asking how this ACORN scandal tied to President Obama. Well here's an excerpt from a Wall Street Journal article published yesterday that covers some of those ties:

    Mr. Obama took great pains to act as if he barely knew about Acorn. In fact, his association goes back almost 20 years. In 1991, he took time off from his law firm to run a voter-registration drive for Project Vote, an Acorn partner that was soon fully absorbed under the Acorn umbrella. The drive registered 135,000 voters and was considered a major factor in the upset victory of Democrat Carol Moseley Braun over incumbent Democratic Senator Alan Dixon in the 1992 Democratic Senate primary.

    Mr. Obama's success made him a hot commodity on the community organizing circuit. He became a top trainer at Acorn's Chicago conferences. In 1995, he became Acorn's attorney, participating in a landmark case to force the state of Illinois to implement the federal Motor Voter Law. That law's loose voter registration requirements would later be exploited by Acorn employees in an effort to flood voter rolls with fake names.

    In 1996, Mr. Obama filled out a questionnaire listing key supporters for his campaign for the Illinois Senate. He put Acorn first (it was not an alphabetical list). In the U.S. Senate, Mr. Obama became the leading critic of Voter ID laws, whose overturn was a top Acorn priority. In 2007, in a speech to Acorn's leaders prior to their political arm's endorsement of his presidential campaign, Mr. Obama was effusive: "I've been fighting alongside of Acorn on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote in Illinois, Acorn was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work."

    But the Obama campaign didn't appear eager to discuss the candidate's ties to Acorn. Its press operation vividly denied Mr. Obama had been an Acorn trainer until the New York Times uncovered records demonstrating that he had been. The Obama campaign also gave Citizens Consulting, Inc., an Acorn subsidiary, $832,000 for get-out-the-vote activities in key primary states. In filings with the Federal Election Commission, the Obama campaign listed the payments as "staging, sound, lighting," only correcting the filings after the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review revealed their true nature.
    Hope that provides answers for some of you.

    He was within the vacinity of where the president was going to be. Also his statements later on about how he thinks Obama should die. Again there's a time and a place.

    What exactly is the point of bringing a gun to one of these events? Other than intimidation I don't see any need.

    In a parking lot outside the event. The guy was scoping out the area and tried to see if he could get through with a knife. He got caught.

    You said taxation without representation. Unless congress is dissolved I'd say you're wrong about taxation without representation

    That's fine, then say "He was within the vicinity of where the president was going to be". Saying he was "at the town hall meeting" is a lie and only shows the person reading your post that you are not to be taken seriously.

    That said, there's nothing at all wrong with lawfully carrying a gun "within the vicinity" of any head of state as lawful gun owners are the LAST people to make an assassination attempt.

    He made those comments in the right time and place to make those comments.

    You don't even have the right to ask that. If he's not braking a law, his carrying a gun is as much a privacy issue as a woman's abortion. No less.

    There is no reason to have a "need", so stop looking for one.

    Right, because this guy is a nutcase.

    When representative are actively ignoring the people who elected them, there is no representation. When one party steams ahead with various tax laws simply because they have the votes to ignore the other half of the country, AND that other half of the country passionately opposes those tax laws, there is no representation.
