USA: Armed gun rights activists march on NRA convention

United States, Dallas
May 5, 2018 at 07:15 GMT +00:00 · Published

Gun rights activists, many with weapons, gathered in on Saturday carrying banners and as the National Rifle Association held its annual meeting across the street.

Anti-gun rights supporters were kept separate throughout the day by Dallas police and for the most part participants were respectful of one another’s' views.

The debate on gun control was sparkled once again after the latest in a long series of mass shootings put it back in the spotlight, with students and parents of Parkland School reigniting the debate and calling for stricter gun control measures.

Pro-gun supporters marched outside of the convention to show their support for the NRA and their commitment to keep intact the Second Amendment, which forms the legal basis of gun ownership in the US.
