This past Thursday, men countered a gun control protest by moms in Indiana, according to The Washington Post. It was the same day President Obama spoke to the nation emotionally on gun violence.

During the President’s speech, several members of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America joined a rally the Mayors Against Illegal Guns Coalition sponsored to protest guns.

Against the protest were armed men who won some spotlight. Outside the Indiana statehouse, there was counter-demonstration. Men armed with AR-15 semi-automatic weapons countered the urging against gun violence.

The guns the men carried were loaded. One man stated to WTHR News: “Any weapon that is not loaded is just a rock or a club.”

Moms Demand Action made a request for background checks on all gun buys. ThinkProgress.org said in its news headline on the events of the day: “Men with loaded rifles intimidate moms at gun safety rally.” A mom reported to ThinkProgress.org, she “felt unsettled” by the men with loaded guns.

At least two or three men were present at the moms rally location prior to the event beginning. The men were part of a discussion about gun laws, reported ThinkProgress.org. The armed men persisted that they had a legal right to carry the loaded guns.

The mothers asked for gun laws to protect children, to prevent adults from getting killed at mass shootings, and to protect against firearm fatalities and injuries. Gun laws are at the forefront of public attention and there is pressure on senators and representatives to go against the National Rifle Association and pass gun measures supported by Americans who do not want to get hurt by guns.



One gun extremist stated:  “This firearm is not about hunting for me… it is my right to have this firearm and I don’t have to defend or show a need for this firearm to own it,” according to The National Memo.

Gun safety groups held events similar to the Indiana rally all over the United States recently. At the White House, where President Obama made an appeal for Congress to pass gun measures, there was a pledge to do something about gun violence.

According to NBCNews, Nicky McNally, a group spokesperson for the moms said:  “On average, eight children die each day in this country from gun violence. Eight.” The moms wanted elimination of high capacity magazines and they asked for military-style weapons to be off the streets.

One man carrying a weapon remarked in response to the moms:  “To me this is normal,” according to NBCNews.
