Town Hall Arms Race Accelerating

(Late update: CNN now reports that there were two men carrying assault rifles, reportedly AR-15s, outside President Obama’s event in Phoenix.)

A man was seen carrying an assault rifle and a pistol outside the VFW Convention in Phoenix where President Obama spoke today, a local newspaper reports. (Click through for a photo.)

Local police said it’s legal under Arizona law, but two officers kept close by him.

“If we need to intervene, we will intervene at that time,” said Detective J. Oliver.

So what’s more nuts: bringing an AR-15 to a Town Hall or the law that says it’s legal to do that in Arizona?
