Video: Gun Rally Held in Corinth

CORINTH, Miss. (WCBI) – Gun owners in Corinth and surrounding areas came to celebrate their second amendment right today.

Hundreds attended the gun rally, including state legislators and local mayors. Long time residents of Mississippi consider the right to carry a gun a cause worth fighting for.

“Mississippi is an open carry state and has been since 1890. And that’s what we want to get across to people, to protect their second amendment rights,” says event coordinator, Jay Anthony.

Supporters of today’s rally hope this event will inspire other gun rally’s across the state.
