Second Amendment supporters rallied Saturday at state capitols across the country; hush from press

Second Amendment supporters rallied Saturday at state capitols across the country to give voice to gun rights in America… and what a difference a month makes.

Amid a concerted effort on the left to impose strict gun-control laws in the country, if the rallies received any attention from the press, it was to compare the small crowds to last month’s media supported “March for Our Lives” event, which received millions of dollars from the likes of Oprah Winfrey and actor George Clooney, among others.

There were 45 planned rallies, sponsored by The National Constitutional Coalition of Patriotic Americans, Fox News reported.

Rallies were held in Boston, Indianapolis, Albany, N.Y., Austin, Texas and other cities.


Dave Gulya, an organizer for a rally in Maine told the Bangor Daily News that gun owners are determined to show that they take their rights seriously.

“Gun owners have been portrayed in a negative way and it is our hope that this peaceable rally will show that we are safe, law-abiding individuals that happen to take our constitutional rights very seriously,” Gulya said.

To the angst of the liberal media, some protesters openly carried at the rallies, where legal. Some carried AR-15 rifles, which is the weapon used in the Florida high school shooting in February that claimed the lives of 17 people.

A speaker in Indiana spoke about gun safety and empowering our children “to make adult decisions when adults are not present.”

A rally-goer in Cheyenne, Wyoming, expressed concerns about the creeping nature of the liberal assault on the Second Amendment.

“If you have a building and you take a brick out every so often, after a while you’re not going to have a building,” Westley Williams said, according to Fox News.

In the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., some Republicans are beginning to waver on gun rights, giving gun owners good reason to be concerned.
