About 500 people attended a rally billed as «March for Our Rights 3» in support of gun rights at Heritage Park in Olympia, capital of Washington state, on Saturday.
Protesters could be seen showing firearms and holding pro-second amendment, pro-President Trump and anti-wearing masks signs. A counter-protester could also be seen in the footage holding a sign that read «Guns are gross» in the middle of the crowd.
«This is a march for our rights rally,» a protester said. «I'm a huge second amendment supporter, I believe very heavily in it. I believe it is there to arm the citizenry, so that the citizenry can keep themselves protected from invasion or tyranny or invasion. I just believe it supports the rights of the citizenry to keep and bear arms,» the activist added.
According to local reports, comedian Sasha Baron Cohen was one of the sponsors of the event and carried out a stunt in which he took to the stage at the end of the rally to sing racist songs disguised as an American country singer.
