    "Ed Donovan, a spokesman for the Secret Service, said incidents of firearms being carried outside presidential events are a "relatively new phenomenon." But he said the president's safety is not being jeopardized."

    Except he wasn't even near Obama...

    I wasn't at the gathering, but it looked like it was outside. I'm sure they screened everyone rather well.
