(Wyo)-Pro-Gun Rally Draws About 100 In Cheyenne
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A rally in support of gun rights on Saturday in Cheyenne drew about 100 people in blustery weather. Similar rallies took place nationwide in response to rallies in favor of gun control held nationwide last month after the shooting at a Florida high school that killed 17 people.
Several of the demonstrators in front of the Wyoming Supreme Court building Saturday were carrying a variety of firearms.
Among them was Republican gubernatorial candidate Taylor Haynes, who said he was carrying a gun under his leather duster. Haynes told the crowd the Second Amendment is the most important amendment to the U.S. Constitution because the Constitution couldn't be enforced without it.
Westley Williams of Cheyenne was carrying an AR-15 rifle and said he's worried the Second Amendment is slowly being chipped away.
