Video: Russian Media Reports on ‘Day of Resistance’ Protest of Gun Control Measures

Photo Credit: Jim UrquhartThousands of Second Amendment activists across the US took part in a Day of Resistance against President Obama’s gun control measures, calling his plans unconstitutional. Words are not all they’re prepared to use to protect their right to bear arms.

People gathered at dozens of cities and towns across the United States, crowds numbering from a hundred to a thousand people. They were carrying American flags and banners with words of harsh criticism against Obama’s proposed gun control regulations. “Come and take it!” “Dictators Want You Disarmed,” “Honk If You Want to Keep Your 2nd Amendment” and “Don’t tread on me” were among the most common slogans. Protesters believe owing a gun is a basic right of every American citizen.

“This isn’t a Democratic thing, or a Republican thing, or a Tea Party thing, this is an American thing. This is about the rights this nation was founded on,” Ryan Studabaker, rally organizer from Bluffton, Indiana, told

Based on production data from firearm manufacturers, there are roughly 300 million firearms owned by civilians in the United States – roughly one for every citizen.

“The 2nd Amendment prohibits the government from infringing on our right to bear arms. We want to make darn sure they don’t infringe on our rights. If we lost the Second Amendment, we’ll lose them all,” Jerry Martin, a rally participant in Kenenwick, Washington, told NBC.

    For 200 Years we’ve had the Right to Bear Arms unfettered, until the advent of a Dictatorship in Office through the Obama Administration. God help and Bless America and Americans, and may we stand our ground against Government Tyranny unfettered.

      It’s more like 400+ years since at least the first British Colonies arrived in North America and the split in 1775 was mainly because England was not going to allow the Colonists the rights of Englishmen of Arms for self defense. Remember the “shot heard round the world”, was because of planned firearms confiscation.

  • When you have a person in the WH acting like Adolf Hitler, yes there are reasons to think about your rights very seriously. Especially when those in Congress want to disarm the country and are doing everything they can dream up to take them away. When guns are gone there is no one to defend us from them.

  • Like we need to be informed about the Second Amendment by a Russian reporter whose country has the most restrictive gun control that does not work in the world?
    George Kennedy is a liberal twit.
    The libs just don’t get the real reason for the Second. What he stated is that reason. Molon Labe, George.
    God bless the police chief of the PA town.
