Video of two different guys with guns at Obama event

At 1:24 into the video the white guy with the gun interviewing the Black with the gun says "we got a good looking young Black man with an AR-15" as if that makes it ok. If video does not load below click here for video.

Meanwhile kudos to the Brady Campaign for saying this has got to stop.

Gun Responsibility:Leave Loaded Firearms At Home When Attending Presidential Events

Washington, DC – Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, released the following statement on reports that a man was carrying what appeared to be a loaded assault rifle and a sidearm to President Obama's speech in Phoenix, Arizona today:

"Bringing loaded firearms to any Presidential event endangers all in attendance. Even though our weak national and state gun laws may allow this dangerous behavior, we should use a little common sense.

"Individuals carrying loaded weapons at these events require constant attention from police and Secret Service officers, thus stretching their protective efforts even thinner. The possibility that these weapons might be grabbed or stolen or accidentally mishandled increases the risks of serious injury or death to all in attendance.

"The National Rifle Association and other 'gun rights' groups need to send a message about 'gun responsibilities' to their members and all gun owners. Loaded weapons at political forums endanger all involved, distract law enforcement, and end up stifling debate. Presidential protesters need to leave their firearms at home - no exceptions."
