Following two hours of speeches, a group gathered on the steps of the Hall of Justice chanting “U-S-A” and “four more years” for Trump. Estimates put the number attending the “Second Amendment March” to be between two hundred and a thousand.
The former president of Michigan Open Carry Tom Lambert addressed the crowd. “Whether you decide to open carry or concealed carry, that is your choice. It is not my job to make that decision for you.” “It is not their job to make that decision for you either.”
On Monday, the six-member commission rejected one proposal to generally ban guns and another to limit only the open carry of weapons. However, the panel, which is usually in charge of maintaining the Capitol grounds, plans to continue considering the matter, including meeting with the leaders of the Michigan House and Senate. Commission member Joan Bauer has contended the commission has a “moral and legal responsibility to act before something terrible happens.”

Demonstrators with firearms also went to the Senate gallery, which was open to the public and where demonstrators occasionally shouted down at lawmakers as they were in session. “It’s been four months since armed gunmen stood above elected officials while they worked,” the Michigan Senate Democrats’ official Twitter account posted this week. “Legislators, staff, children & teachers shouldn’t have to fear guns in the Capitol.”
However, participants in the Second Amendment March disagreed Thursday. Phil Robinson of Michigan Liberty Militia said a ban would infringe on people’s constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
