South Carolina Adds Voice to Nationwide Pro-Gun Demonstrations
Sunday, January 20, 2013
On January 19, I attended a pro-gun rights rally on the steps of the South Carolina Statehouse in Columbia, South Carolina. The rally was a part of a larger series of demonstrations organized at State Capitols all across the United States in order to voice support for gun rights as well as opposition to the recent unveiling of a variety of unconstitutional Executive Orders and legislative proposals from the gun-grabbing Obama administration as well as other anti-gun politicians at both the Federal and local levels.
The rallies were being referred to both as “Gun Appreciation Day,” and “Guns Across America” and were almost exclusively organized via social media such as Facebook and Twitter.
Although the turnout at the event I attended, which was made up of about three hundred people when I arrived an hour late, was not what one would consider to be stellar, the national turnout was also not merely in the “hundreds” as CBS News has deceptively reported, but in the thousands.
