People in Portland, Oregon panicked Wednesday when they saw two guys walking down the street with rifles strapped to their backs.
Why were they taking their guns for a walk? Warren Drouin and Steven Boyce (both 22-years-old) tell HLN affiliate KPTV they have the right to carry their guns in public, and they hoped to engage people in conversation and educate them about gun rights.
Police said both men hold valid gun licenses, and were not breaking any laws. Even so, they scared a lot of people who called 911 and as police explained to KPTV, those calls could tie up operators who may be needed for a real emergency.
What do you think about their tactic? Is there a better way to get their point across?
