Gun rights activists rally at state capitols nationwide

Yahoo News Photo Staff

April 14, 2018 Gun rights supporters gathered at the state Capitol in Atlanta for one of dozens of rallies planned at statehouses across the U.S.

According to The Associated Press’ count, more than 135 attended the rally Saturday, and more were arriving. Most of them were armed and some held signs as they listened to speeches. A few people wearing “Black Lives Matter” T-shirts made videos, but didn’t interact with the ralliers.

The rallies come less than three weeks after hundreds of thousands marched in Washington, New York and elsewhere to demand tougher gun laws after the February school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17.

A group called the National Constitutional Coalition of Patriotic Americans says organizers have permits for gatherings in 45 states. They encouraged supporters to bring unloaded rifles in states where it’s legal. (AP)

Second Ammendment supporters turned out at nation's state capitols.

Rally effort appreciated but was poorly promoted.

AP III, Oathkeepers, and NCCPA organized. NRA and GOA tables not seen at NH capitol rally event.

Approx 160 showed up. Peaceful, clean, good speakers. Gov Sununu provided supportive statement.

Rest assured that DS and leftist organs will not let up efforts to erode & eliminate 2A.

Far more Constitutional suporter voice / involvement needed ahead Nov mid-term election, and counter-force in the event leftists win majorities.

It will be peaceful, and the folks will not leave a mess when they leave.

Not a word in the media, unless some activist from antifa deliberately starts a fight, in which case the media will blame it on the NRA supporters.

Not Ammendment.

But will they be giving out free 30-round AR magazines, to all attendees?
