PALMDALE – There was a large turnout for the Day of Resistance rally on Saturday, Feb. 23. Dozens of protesters showed up to show their support of the 2nd Amendment, waving American flags and signs. State Senator Steve Knight was the guest speaker, showing his support to the cause as well.
“This is a different way America’s going about things,” said Knight. “We are actually looking at the law-abiding citizens and saying ‘You are our target’, instead of the people who are using guns irresponsibly.”
On 10th Street West near Rancho Vista Blvd, the rally was in a prime spot to gain attention by passing residents.
There was a chorus of honks and shout outs throughout the entire rally, causing cheers from the local patriots.
“I am supporting this cause because I want to see a better America for my family and children,” explained Kenneth L. of Lancaster. “If we don’t stand up for our constitutional rights, then we have no say in the country’s future. I want a say in my future.”
The rally was held by the Littlerock Tea Party, a local group that organizes rallies around the Antelope Valley and holds meetings on a regular basis.
The rally was in conjunction with the national Day of Resistance movement. The movement focused on opposing the gun control bills coming into Congress. Similar rallies took place nationwide.
According to Knight, around 13 anti-gun bills are in the pipeline for California.
“Please don’t write me a letter. I’m pretty good with guns,” laughed Knight. “You can come to my house and see my guns, you can see me take my boys out shooting. We’ve grown up with guns, we know what they are, and I was a cop for 18 years so I’ve been around them for a little while.”
