In Colorado when a citizen excercises his Rights, it's newsworthy.

"A man took a shotgun into Colorado Springs city hall this morning. His actions were completely legal...The man with the shotgun sat quietly in the back of city council chambers during a meeting...Extra police officers arrived to ensure public safety, but there were no incidents."

I wonder what the request for extra security was like? "Dispatch, we have a man excercising his Rights. We need backup now!"

It's sad though, that they make a big deal out of this. It's sadder still that governmental permission is required to carry a weapon in such a manner that you don't mkae the headlines.
