Man Carries AR-15 in JCPenny Store

RIVERDALE, Utah – Cindy Yorgason took a picture of a man with an AR-15 strapped to his back inside a JCPenny store in Riverdale. The AR-15 stands for ArmaLite rifle, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation website.

The picture was taken Wednesday about four hours after President Obama called for a renewed ban on assault weapons.

“He had the AR swung over his shoulder. He had a hand gun in a holster on his right hip, and he had extra clips on his belt as well,” Yorgason said.

Other customers were pointing and making all sorts of faces in reaction to the gunman. “It was just something you don’t see everyday and I wanted to catch it and be able to share it with other people,” Yorgason said.

It’s legal to open carry a gun in Utah, but it must be unloaded and it must take two actions to fire.
