Sunday afternoon, Shelton's population swelled as two competing rallys descended on downtown in support of Black Lives Matter and Back The Blue.  Shelton Police Chief Darrin Moody told iFiberOne News Radio in an interview aired Wednesday that at times it seemed like a festival atmosphere.  

Crowds started gathering early in the day and many business owners took to either boarding up their windows and having people guarding their shop.  Many people were openly-carrying handguns and long guns.  

Chief Moody told us that at times the voices got loud but overall the events were peaceful.  No arrests were made.

Well Donald Trump did tell his followers to take their guns to the streets and LIBERATE their government. And these armed gun freaks are doing exactly what they were told to do.
