LANSING, MI –
Hundreds of people gathered at the state Capitol Tuesday to rally in support of Second Amendment rights.
American flags and yellow "don't tread on me" flags peppered the crowd, and many people had firearms slung over their shoulders or resting in hip holsters. Michigan law does not prohibit the open carry of legal firearms.
Joel Fulton is a Second Amendment rights activist. He says the right to bear arms separates a free society from a feudalistic one.
"So if I know you guarantee my right to keep and bear arms, you believe that I'm a citizen and not a slave, then I believe that you believe in my liberty," he says.
Fulton helped organize buses that are scheduled to take many activists from Michigan to Washington D.C. later this month for a Second Amendment March on the nation's Capitol.
