He calls the rally a step in the right direction.

“I’ve been coming here since I was like 16 so I brought my kids here a week before that young man was held up by gunpoint and my wife doesn’t even feel safe in this park. If it wasn’t for this amount of people here, she doesn’t want our kids here.”
