SALT LAKE CITY - They are not the kind of images some gun rights advocates want to see.
The photo of a young man with an assault rifle in a JC Penney store in Riverdale earlier this year or an image Wednesday at a House hearing of another young man with a rifle strapped on his back. Both were legally carrying a firearm.
"It does hurt the cause. These people, if they are on our side, they can't be lone wolves," Rep. Curt Oda, R-Clearfield, said of the visual images. Oda confronted the youth Wednesday to voice his concerns, after a committee meeting, but said he backed off pushing the point when the youth chose to ignore him.
The House is currently considering seven gun-related issues this legislative session.
