Gun rights supporters gathered in Atlanta and dozens of other US state capitals Saturday at a time when many Americans are pressing for tougher restrictions on weapons.
"Gun owners have been portrayed in a negative way and it is our hope that this peaceable rally will show that we are safe, law-abiding individuals that happen to take our constitutional rights very seriously", said Dave Gulya, an organizer for the ME event.
About 50 people spoke to the cheering crowd - some of them only to say their name and to voice their support for the Second Amendment - and the line-up included a scheduled slate of prominent ME gun rights proponents. Majority were armed, and some held signs as they listened to speeches. A sign on the stage at the park read: "Montana Kids Live Free, Less Rhetoric, More Guns".
