Trump Supporters Rally In Downtown Atlanta With Semi-Automatic Weapons

At Zero Hedge by Tyler Durden -- 

As Trump was preparing to address an audience in Florida on Saturday afternoon, in a speech which Reuters summarized as "returning to the campaign trail to attack the media again and tout his accomplishments in the friendly atmosphere of a rally with supporters", a group of supporters gathered for a pro-President Trump rally in downtown Atlanta armed with semi-automatic weapons.

The crowd met at Centennial Olympic Park. Those there told Channel 2 Action News that they are part of an area militia group, III% Security Force, which was also serving as security for the event.

As WSB-TV reports, members of the militia group said they were there to protect President Trump supporters. 
"We're using our second amendment rights to protect the first amendment rights," Chris Hill said.
"Throughout the day we're going to have more people, more Trump supporters come to this corner, showing their support for President Trump. We are going to make sure that these people are safe and have the right to have their voices heard without fear of violence or intimidation from any opposing groups."
