As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by NEWSWEEK.COM:
March for Our Rights, a pro-gun non-profit organization, is hosting rallies in 13 cities across the country on Saturday to defend second amendment rights.
Nineteen-year-old National Director of the movement and USC student Xena Amirani told Newsweek the march has been planned since April, and said “The reason why our movement was founded was due to a negative reaction we had directly with the media in the wake of the Parkland shooting and March for our Lives… There was no publicity assisting us.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Planning to march and speak with approximately 250 people in California, Amirani said she has lost contact since going public with her opinions with other people she initially thought of as friends.
Another teen in the Midwest, 16-year-old march Boulder coordinator Lucy Amirani, had also said she felt her perspective was underrepresented within her community. “I live in one of the most liberal parts of my state, and just at school with the teachers and students I notice significant underrepresentation of conservative views in the classroom, especially history classes,” she said to Newsweek.
The Hill further reports:
Organizers with the “March for Our Rights” planned rallies in Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., among other cities, on Saturday, expecting modest turnout compared to the large-scale marches earlier this year in favor of tougher gun restrictions.
Speakers at Saturday’s events in Washington included NRA TV host Cam Edwards. Former Republican Rep. Joe Walsh (Ill.) spoke at the Chicago rally.
