CALGARY- A man has been charged after showing up at a Jewish rally with two airsoft guns.

Around 7 p.m. on Thursday, staff at the Calgary Jewish Centre were checking bags ahead of a rally in support of Israel, when a man handed over his bag to be checked.

The guns were discovered inside, and police were immediately notified.

The man was taken into custody without incident, and has since been charged.

Adam Dykens, 26, faces two counts each of carrying a concealed weapon and carrying a weapon to a public meeting.

He’s scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
