Dozens of gun rights supporters didn’t let the threat of heavy rain drown their voices on behalf of the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms in Hillsborough, N.C.

A speaker and attendees hit the nail on the head in terms of why the right is held so dear by many Americans: “Only the misuse of a gun is wrong,” one speaker told the undaunted crowd. A participant, when asked why the Second Amendment is important, said, “because the police can’t be everywhere.”

The demonstrators abided by state law, which says carry is not permitted at public rallies. Instead, they donned empty holsters.

Mark Robinson, a video of whom went viral when he addressed the Greensboro City Council about gun rights, was the featured speaker. He had earlier been invited to speak at the NRA’s ILA Leadership Forum in Dallas this past May.

The assembly was conducted peaceably.

“We’re not trying to incite people or rabble-rouse,” Ashley Campbell, an event organizer, said in an interview before the march. “One of our goals is to provide an opportunity for local officials, who mostly promote gun control, to listen to their constituents’ concerns. Most interactions between constituents and their representatives have it the other way around.”
