More than 50,000 people participated in an estimated 100 rallies across the country on Saturday as part of the National Day of Resistance to oppose gun control. One of those rallies was held in Sioux Falls.
Members of the South Dakota Tea Party Movement organized their own rally at the Downtown Holiday Inn on Saturday morning. The resistance movement is being held to oppose President Obama's agenda and protect the rights and liberties of Americans. Those who attended the event heard from speakers from the Tea Party Movement on topics including gun control and second-amendment rights. Attendees had the opportunity to watch informational videos and learn more about the resistance movement.
“We're going to be sending a strong message to all of our elected officials that we elected them to have responsibility, not power,” said Dr. Allen Unruh, who helped to organize the event.
Attendees had the opportunity to sign up to be a part of the organization as well.
