Open carrier taken into custody outside Obama rally
Story here. The fellow was carrying openly (utterly legal in Pennsylvania), but does so outside an Obama rally. He doesn't try to enter the park where it was being held (which requires passing thru metal detectors), Someone sees the gun, and he winds up arrested, charged with disorderly conduct (essentially disturbing the peace) -- which I can't see. The county attorney describes it as a conflict between the first amendment right to peaceably assemble and the second amendment right to arms. Again, I don't see it. He could have exercised his second amendment rights, and they exercise their first amendment rights, without any conflict at all.
