2000 rally at Minnesota State Capitol for gun rights
April 29, 2018
About 2,000 people, some toting handguns and rifles, gathered on the steps of the Minnesota State Capitol Saturday to support gun owners’ rights and to decry firearm regulations proposed by some legislators.
“There’s some that don’t want to carry a gun on their hip or own a firearm to protect their family, [and] that’s fine,” said Pete Stauber, who is running for a congressional seat in Minnesota’s Eighth District. “But you don’t take it away from us defending ourselves, our families and our grandkids.”
