Clearly the people who are legally carrying are the real problem, not the thugs beating others with pipes, clubs and fists … like they did in Berkeley.

Perhaps, instead of focusing on better arming the police, we should at least consider disarming the protesters. There are already limits on open carries for airports and some school zones; zoning where someone can and cannot openly carry a deadly weapon is nothing new. Let’s add peaceful protests to the list. There could be restrictions placed upon the armament of protesters and public assemblies.’
Disarm protesters? For real?
Does this include the antifa 'protesters' that show up with clubs, bottles of urine, rocks, etc?

What peaceful protest was this photo taken at?

Probably stock footage from a Tea Party Rally.
Seems Slate doesn’t understand that modern-day protests are anything BUT peaceful.
Should read – How to protect yourself against terrorist groups (like ANTIFA) during a protest. The left is always violent.

1) Recognize 'armed' is a fundamental Constitutional right and doesn't assume a threat.
2) Stop reporting 'ARMED PROTESTERS!!' https://t.co/EGXroHqgeY

Silly, thinking Slate would recognize any actual rights.
And they were armed with pipes & other types of clubs in Berkeley last night. Why attack legal CC or open carry?

But guns are bad and stuff!
