Pro-gun rights rally held in Hartford

Second Amendment supporters gathered at the state capitol on Saturday to rally for their rights. 

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League hosted the rally. Those who were there were standing up to what they call "anti-gun propaganda," especially in the wake of the Parkland, Florida school shooting.

"They got their side and they are not coming over to our side. But if they are in trouble they will ask me to help them because I carry a gun. It's my right," said Joseph Sgori.

"Every time there's a horrific murder, opportunistic politicians run to the cameras. Two of the very big ones come from right here in our state," said 

and through the commentary that they provide, their solutions only seem to include proposals that curtail your rights as free citizens. 

In addition to the pro-gun rally held in Hartford, others were held in cities across the country.
