11-year old New Hampshire boy brandishes an assault rifle at a statehouse pro-gun rally

An 11-year old boy, who took part in a pro-gun rally at the New Hampshire statehouse, was seen brandishing an AR-15 assault rifle, along with a pro-gun flag.

From an article:

Organized by the Granite State Patriots Liberty PAC, the "Honor Your Oath" rally charged that lawmakers who voted to repeal the state's "Stand Your Ground" law last month violated their oaths of office and should be impeached, according to the Union Leader. The rally organizers said the event was not "gun rally."
But that didn't stop 11-year-old Hunter Cogswell of Concord from bringing an AR-15 and a big white flag with black lettering: "Come and Take It." 
The boy said he was there to "stand up for gun rights." 
"I believe in gun rights. It's our constitutional right," he said, adding the gun was real but "not loaded."
As TPM reported Saturday, the New Hampshire State House was closed due to a "threat relative to possible violence" received by police and an email sent out to lawmakers around 3 p.m., shortly after the rally ended.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
