Gun Across America Rally held at LR State Capitol

LITTLE ROCK, AR -- A passionate crowd gathered at the Arkansas State Capitol Saturday, as gun right supporters send a message to local and national lawmakers.
The rally was part of the National Guns Across America movement.

"Leave the law the way it is. Leave the constitution, with the second amendment, the way it is," said supporter Gloria Pinion.

Planners say something must be done to combat gun violence. But any kind of gun ban is not the answer.

Supporters say lawmakers are not listening to the American people, pointing at the presidents recent executive order to strengthen gun laws.

"When you see something like these school shootings happen, the only way to stop that is to have someone there with a gun," said supporter Richard Burke.

Ralliers say gun bans do not prevent gun crimes.

"I believe the right to bear arms should include the right for law abiding citizens to conceal carry everywhere we go," said rallier Adam Skarda.
