LANSING, Mich. — The 12th annual Second Amendment March was the first major pro-gun demonstration since the Michigan State Capitol Commission voted unanimously to ban open carry in the Capitol building. The ban made in January came after violence occurred at the U.S. Capitol. The rally on Thursday allowed open and concealed carry on the Michigan Capitol Building lawn in Lansing and informed participants to carry in a responsible manner. The event ran from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and aimed to show support for the Second Amendment and allow citizens to discuss gun rights issues with their legislators. The event was scheduled to have music, legislators, “ask an attorney” panel, featured speakers and vendor tables with fundraising merchandise and literature. Representatives from gun groups, like Michigan Gun Owners and Michigan Open Carry, Inc., were also anticipated to attend the event. Joel Fulton, from Freedom Firearms in Battle Creek, was expected to be the master of ceremonies. Other featured speakers included Mary Collins, Doug Giles, Mark Walters and Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf.
