Erie Takes Part in "Day of Resistance"

Posted: Updated:


Nearly 100 people gathered in Perry Square on Saturday to take part in "Day of Resistance," a national rally against the 23 executive orders President Obama enacted back in January surrounding gun control.

"We just want to share that there are people who oppose this and we need to get our voices hear," said organizer Justin Dillon. "The time is now. Its isn't yesterday, last week, it is literally right now."

Cities and towns across the country on Saturday held their own day of resistance. Those here in Erie say it was all about educating people on gun laws.

"We just want to make sure fold have the opportunity to get a little bit of an education of what actual laws are and that responsible gun owners are exactly that, responsible," said gun owner Chris Phillips.

The rally was interrupted by an individual who supports stricter gun control. Gun owners there say they welcome other people's point of view.

"That's their right and I fully welcome them to be here and speaking it, because the entire Bill of Rights is what our country is all about," said Phillips. "I applaud them for being here."

Dillon said he know not everyone will agree, but he hopes one day both sides can come together to find some common ground.
