I vissa delar av USA är det lagligt att bära vapen synligt. Det kan på ett obehagligt sätt användas för att skrämma politiska motståndare, som t ex här:
“If he wants to support his candidate that’s fine, but don’t come here and stare into the office all day,” said Su Wolff, a Fluvanna County resident and Dittmar volunteer.
Parks was eventually joined by another protester, and Wolff said that the most troubling part of the protest was that both of them started to expose their firearms.
“He turned sideways to be sure that we would see that he has an open carry gun, which is legal, and is fine, but it’s intimidating,” she said.
