PORTSMOUTH — Police said a man arrested at the scene of President Barack Obama’s visit to the city Tuesday was found to be in possession of an unlicensed loaded gun.

Richard Terry Young, 62, of 821 Ocean Blvd. in Hampton, was arrested around 9:40 a.m., hours before Obama’s arrival, and charged with the misdemeanor crimes of criminal trespass and carrying a loaded pistol without a license.

Shit. There were a couple other incidents with guns at town halls already but from what I’ve read those folks were obeying concealed carry laws and there really was nothing to them. This… well, this sounds a little different. I can’t think of a good reason someone should want to bring an illegal, loaded gun to a place where the President is speaking, can you?
