The right is there but the ethics are not

Recently two men were arrested in Appleton Wisconsin after they carried their AR-15 rifles on their backs into the local farmers market. As an avid advocate of gun rights this disappoints me. I will fight for gun rights as much as anyone but in this case the question that should be asked is why because it clearly is not just for self defense but rather for the reaction. This kind of stunt is what gives gun owners and supporters a bad rap. It is clear that they were just after a reaction which they knew they would receive because they were ready and willing to record the entire event as the police showed up and took them into custody. The constitution protects gun rights but these sort of actions are inappropriate and not the kind of publicity that gun owners need, if you would like to check out the article for yourself here is the link.
