Eastern Iowans rally for gun owner rights


Hundreds rallied in Cedar Rapids today in honor of what's being called the first Gun Appreciation Day.

It's part of a national movement protesting the President's gun control proposals following last month's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Gun enthusiasts gathered in Greene Square Park to show their support for the Second Amendment.

"Background checks is fine, I don't have a problem with that," said Jim Caswell, NRA Member. "But as far as getting rid of guns, you can buy a gun, I don't care if you're on the streets of Cedar Rapids or Chicago or Timbuktu if you want a gun you're going to get a gun..

At least 200 people showed for this event.
