Armed Trump Supporters Tried Intimidating ‘March For Our Lives’ Advocates, Got Instantly Shut Down
While hundreds of thousands of students across the nation gathered to protest gun violence in America, Trump supporters tried stopping the rallies by showing up with their red “Make America Great Again” hats and guns.
Many gun-loving in Trump supporters showed up at many of the rallies carrying AR-15s and sidearms, an effort they dubbed “March For Our Guns.”
People attending the rallies to put a stop to gun violence did not back down after seeing armed Trump supporters. Instead, they got louder.

Counter protestors are out here in Arizona. One man brought an AR-15 and says he plans to be peaceful but said “if they attack I will attack back.” He says those saying gun violence is on the rise is “fake news.” #MarchForOurLives #azfamily pic.twitter.com/S8FezA496R

At a #MarchForOurLives march in Greensburg, PA. I wonder who this gentleman is & what his family, friends, colleagues, co-workers & employer would think of this. If it’s an open carry state, he’s well within his rights. But it’s still a good & interesting question dontcha think? pic.twitter.com/xUmdyIjy9S
