Gun control is currently a huge debate in the United States and many Americans want their voices and opinions heard.

A group of Grafton residents will hold a 'Gun Appreciation' rally on Saturday to do just that.

From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., members of the community can go to "Quality Home Comfort" to show support for their second amendment right.

The group believes the government should be stricter on who is allowed to purchase guns but not take them away completely.

"We don't want the government to take a tragedy and take it to the extreme of taking guns away. Every time something like this happens, they get on the gun thing," said Dennis Shumaker, event organizer.

The "Gun Appreciation" rally starts Saturday morning at Quality Home Comfort in Grafton.
