Dozens of gun rights supporters descended on the Indiana Statehouse Friday. Members of Oath Keepers say their goal is to preserve gun rights that are under fire in America. They say supporting the Second Amendment is crucial to securing American freedom overall.

Oath Keepers estimates it has at least 20,000 members nationwide. They‘re holding rallies across the nation. Nick Voils of Speedway attended the rally. Voils says hammers and blunt objects kill more people than guns.

“There are things that kill more people than guns. Guns aren‘t the problem. Hammers and blunt objects kill more people every year than rifles do,” he says.

Scott Hodson of Martinsville says he simply came to support 2nd Amendment rights and they want their voices heard.

“We feel there are alot of people in our government would challenge those rights and we just want our voices heard. This is a peaceful gathering,” he says.
