Armed Pro-Gun Protesters Occupy Oregon State Capitol

A handful of protesters also entered the Capitol building itself and brandished assault rifles and other guns in the Capitol rotunda.

 

A few hundred pro-gun demonstrators rallied outside the Oregon state Capitol on Friday to  protest efforts to enact gun safety laws. A handful of protesters also entered the Capitol building itself and brandished assault rifles and other guns in the Capitol rotunda:

The Oregonian has  more pictures of the armed protesters here. Oregon law permits persons with concealed carry permits to openly carry weapons within public buildings, so the armed demonstrators behaved lawfully provided they had valid permits while standing inside the Capitol.

 I think these protests are going to be the next mass murder showdown....not from the protester but from someone who sees it as a great place to take their automatic and have noone think twice....and gun down a few people...and then go down in a blaze of glory :-(

Or just accident, ala the several reported at gunshows & dealers on "gun appreciation" day.
As easy as, say, a photographer backing up to get a good photo angle...bumping into Joe Blockhead Gunrights' semiauto he's got slung across his back...& oops! Ya know I didn't know!! There was still one in the chamber!...they collide, Mr Blockhead G. drops/reflexively sqeezes trigger on the semiauto...& one of those two cute little girls on the steps in the first photo above is...not seeing her next birthday.
