Spencer Kornhaber of Lake Forest Patch reported yesterdayÂ on an open carry gun rights demonstration outside a Corner Bakery Restaurant in Lake Forest on Sunday.
Before a group of gun owners gathered outside Lake Forest’s Corner BakeryÂ Sunday with weapons holstered but visible, Robert Cowdell said he and other participants debated whether the timing was right to flash firearms publicly, given the recent shooting outside a Tucson grocery store that killed six people and wounded a congresswoman.
“Absolutely it’s a great time to do it,” Cowdell said while sitting at an outdoor table in a collared white shirt, a Glock strapped to his hip. “We can’t just let ourselves be massacred. We’re here to be able to defend ourselves if the need arises.”
Really? These people thought that 8 days after the shooting in Tucson was a good time to walk around a shopping center with their guns strapped to their hips?
I’ve got a question for Mr. Cowdell. What need do you think is going to arise in the 7th safest city in the United States?
