Armed Pro-Gun Protesters Occupy Oregon State Capitol [View all]

The Oregonian has more pictures of the armed protesters here. Oregon law permits persons with concealed carry permits to openly carry weapons within public buildings, so the armed demonstrators behaved lawfully provided they had valid permits while standing inside the Capitol.
