Dozens of gun rights supporters descended on the Indiana Statehouse Friday.

Listen:

Members of Oath Keepers say their goal is to preserve gun rights that are under fire in America. They say supporting the Second Amendment is crucial to securing American freedom overall.

Oath Keepers estimates it has at least 20,000 members nationwide. They're holding rallies across the nation. Nick Voils of Speedway attended the rally. Voils says hammers and blunt objects kill more people than guns. Robert Smith of Indianapolis says more people are killed by drunk driving than guns and you don't hear calls for a ban on cars. Scott Hodson of Martinsville says he simply came to support 2nd Amendment rights and they want their voices heard.
