A group of citizens, exercising open carry laws with AR-15s and other firearms, stood guard outside Alamance County Republican headquarters on Saturday after the building was vandalized on Friday.
Those who stood guard are members of Alamance County Open Carry.
WCNC spoke to one of the citizens standing guard. “We are here to support freedom,” he said. “The people that vandalize these places, they are cowards. But we’re not. We support the Second Amendment and we want everybody to vote.” The citizen stressed that they support the votes of everyone, not just Republicans.
