“INVERNESS, FL (WFLA) – More than 300 people marched through the streets of Inverness in Citrus County to show their support for the Second Amendment on the morning of Fourth of July.
Many carried American flags on this Independence Day, and all marchers carried loaded guns.
Terry Hallinan owns Florida Gun Supply. This is the second year he has organized the event.
After the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, the gun debate is more heated than ever.
“We’re demonstrating to the rest of America — to anyone listening — that the law-abiding citizens no longer are going to sit idly by and watch the country go to hell,” Hallinan said.
He tells 8 On Your Side that he was dismayed by the recent actions of democratic lawmakers who staged a sit-in on the House floor as a way to pressure republicans to hold votes on gun-control measures.”
Inverness borders the town that I live in
300 doesn’t sound like much, but this is a very small county that I live in
The Sheriff’s Dept. was on the radio leading up to the event and they were not happy
They said that they would not intervene but they made it quite obvious that they were in total disagreement with it
As far as I know only one person got harassed by cops
A car stopped on the roadside that was loaded down with bottled water to pass out and an asshole trooper gave him a $160.00 ticket
Other than that Florida’s finest heroes decided to stay hands off
The march doesn’t sound like much but it is making waves here in small town America
Yes, the peasants are starting to turn out with pitch forks
