GREENSBORO — In the crowd gathered opposite the monument to Gen. Nathanael Greene, there were a handful of “Don’t Tread on Me” T-shirts and dozens of hip-holstered handguns and rifles slung over shoulders.
On Saturday afternoon, about 175 people gathered at Guilford Courthouse National Military Park to celebrate their right to bear arms — and express a variety of conservative political viewpoints, such as discontent over immigration reform and a desire to give the boot to the Washington elite.
The “Restore the Constitution” rally was in recognition of a law that went into effect this year that allows people to carry guns at federal parks.
In the crowd and among the speakers, there was resounding frustration with the state of the federal government and a concern over a lack of respect for the U.S. Constitution.
