Another Idiot Brings Guns to an Obama Rally
Another fool who seems to think it’s completely appropriate to show up at a presidential rally with two loaded weapons: Protester defends bringing guns to Obama rally.
If this kind of insanity keeps up, it’s only a matter of time before something bad happens.
Josh Hendrickson left his children at home Saturday and went to downtown Minneapolis, where President Obama was scheduled to speak, carrying two loaded pistols — one in a holster under his camo shirt and another in a back pocket. He spent the next seven hours standing in front of Target Center, he said, not to cause trouble, but to make a point.
“The Second Amendment isn’t suspended just because the president’s in town,” said Hendrickson, 32, who said he showed police at Obama’s health care rally his license to carry and conceal a weapon under state law. …
Hendrickson said he was questioned by Minneapolis police and a Secret Service agent after he said they spotted the outline of his weapon. Hendrickson said he carried a .40 caliber Glock 22 handgun concealed in a holster on his hip, and a smaller Kel Tec 380 in a pocket. …
“I’m a pretty laid-back guy that loves his kids and his country,” Hendrickson said. He added, however, that he had just been released from jail a month earlier on an assault charge for pepper-spraying a customer at a Cub Foods in Brooklyn Center, where he worked as a security guard.
