PHOTOS, VIDEO: Guns Across America Rally at SC Statehouse
Hundreds rallied at the South Carolina statehouse during a nation-wide series of pro-gun rallies in every state capital.
"Don't Tread on Me" flags flew in numbers Saturday at the South Carolina statehouse as second-amendment supporters gathered by the hundreds at the South Carolina Guns Across America rally.
Similar rallies were held at every state capital Saturday.
Gun control opposition from around the state was present with speakers from Summerville, Aiken, Anderson, the Upstate and Midlands.
Speakers were encouraged to share stories of personal violence against them and reasons to continue support of anti-gun control legislation.
"They act like if we take away all the guns, all the evil, sinful people will go down to the boys club and coach a little leage team because they didn't have anyone to kill because they couldn't find anything," one speaker said."It's not guns, we have to redirect this discussion. It's evil people."
Another spoke on the dangers in public school.
"We are in a gun-free zone and it scares the mess out of me," he said. "If we don't arm ourselves, the crazies will go after us."
