MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The second annual March for Our Rights took place Saturday afternoon in Harlow Park.
Men, women, and children marched with their firearms in support for Second Amendment rights. Citizens United for Freedom and Firearms, known as CUFF, sponsored the event. The group marched peacefully from Harlow Park to Front Street, and then back to the park. The event also had a 50/50 raffle, a raffle that auctioned off five guns, and were accepting donations for the Jacobetti Home for Veterans.
Supporters of the march say this event is used as a way to teach the public on firearms.
"With the attacks on our Second Amendment lately, we felt as a group that it was important for us to stand up and give people an outlet to come to- instead of fearing guns, learning about them," said Citizens United for Freedom and Firearms President, Bob Fassbender.
CUFF representatives say guns are not dangerous in an educated hand.
