Gun Group Holds Rally With AR-15s To Congratulate Congress For Blocking Background Checks

A group of gun activists armed with AR-15s and handguns held a rally at the Tippecanoe County Courthouse in Indiana on Saturday to thank Congress for voting down gun safety measures, including a proposal to expand background checks for guns sales.

Indiana Moms Against Gun Control organized the event as a counter protest to Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense’s protest calling for stricter federal gun laws in the aftermath of the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Pictures from


The armed group had previously crashed a gun safety protest in March and insisted that they had a right to carry the loaded weapons on the streets. “To me, it’s normal,” one of the men told a local TV station, before admitting that he was carrying a loaded weapon. “Any weapon that’s not loaded is just a rock or a club,” he said.

Indiana does not prohibit assault weapons or place limits on magazine capacity.
