Gunbanner Travels With Armed Escort

Oakland’s has posted a video of an open carry debate hosted by the Commonwealth Club in the East Bay city of Lafayette. At the end of it, we learn that CA Assembly member Lori Saldaña, author of a bill to ban the practice of open carry in California, travels under the protection of an armed security detail.
The first thing that strikes me is how the media frames terms, and correspondent Debora Villalon crossed a line from objective reporter to editorialist when she characterized citizens carrying firearms as “flaunting their right to pack heat.”

Karen Arntzen of the Brady Campaign stuck to the talking point that armed citizens are “extending personal risk out to society.” This, of course, is the same argument they’ve used to fight concealed carry laws as well (along with making insulting and unfounded Dodge City analogies).-[source]
