“It would be an uphill battle to make liability stick for any [gun-related death] if the city is in an open carry state,” Choper says. “That isn’t to say authorities shouldn’t or couldn’t try to stop [people carrying guns during demonstrations]. … All rules and laws have exceptions under extraordinary circumstances. No right, including the right to bear arms, is absolute.”
