I'd assume the police/secret service in attendance had handguns and/or rifles too. Why make a big deal out of a citizen doing it?
Because the police aren't likely to try and kill the President, where an unknown citizen might.

What are the Arizona gun laws in dealing with assault rifles? Having a hard time finding exactly on the topic.

I would imagine the secret service had a cross hair on his forehead the entire time he was anywhere close. Ready to blow his head off at any moment.

We have regular "open carry" dinners here in Phoenix, where everyone external carries their chosen weapon.
We don't do this to provoke a response, we do it to remind everyone that in this state it is a legal activity.
Arizona and Texas are the last hold-outs of true gun ownership rights, all we ask is that you leave us alone while you wreck the rest of the country.

Don't forget New Mexico. We can open carry here on our person, and in our vehicle. Loaded, and in the glove box, or on our person. Texas does not permit open carry.
