Rally of armed people at the State Capitol in Michigan gathered against hate
The groups of armed African-American people came to the State Capitol in Lansing, Michigan, to protest against hate following recent national police acts.
The rally forced by Minneapolis man George Floyd’s death was hosted by a firearm instructor and Second Amendment activist Rick Ector and a group called “Legally Armed In Detroit” that supports open-carry and gun right for minorities.
"I'm tired. Every time I turn on the news I got to see one of my black brothers getting killed, or one of my black sisters being beat down," one of the attendees Karen Bethune said, who drove from Detroit.
Ector is the owner of Legally Armed in Detroit and says he turned his sadness and anger over what happened into putting on the "Rally Against Hate."
"I said you know what, I'm surprised someone hasn't done it already. Okay, I'm going to do it I'm going to organize a rally against hate. Let's hold the the evil, dangerous people in our society accountable and let's talk about eliminating this dreadful scourge in our society," said Ector.
