People rally for the second amendment at Americans for America

The National Constitutional Coalition of Patriotic Americans organized 2nd Amendment rallies across the country.

Rallies like this one were organized at state capitals across the country Saturday.

Some people came armed with guns and some waved Confederate flags.

"We the people have the right to say something instead of sitting back and watching, to actually get involved", he said.

Hundreds gathered at the bottom steps of the Capitol for the pro 2nd Amendment rally. "It says our 'Right to bear arms shall not be infringed'".

There were around a dozen speakers who addressed the crowd. Numerous rallies were held at state capitols to push back against fresh attempts to enact stricter gun control laws.

Pentagon says Syria strikes 'hit every target'
The observatory said some of the bases and airports targeted in the attack were evacuated earlier this week. There was no indication of USA losses in the strikes Friday evening, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis noted.

That rally followed a school shooting at Florida's Stoneman Douglas High School. My heartfelt apologies go out to those who have been a victim of gun violence, but my stance is that we as a society should stop blaming others for a problem that is caused only by a few. I don't agree with it, but I respect what they're doing.

At least some of the impetus for Saturday's rally was March for Our Lives, the March 24 pro-gun control event organized by some of the surviving students from the February 14 shooting massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

Lawmakers across the country and in IN have been considering whether to put forward legislation to increase gun control; they say it is in hopes of keeping guns out of the wrong hands.

Several also said they want to keep their right to carry for self-defense and self-protection. Some said they're just concerned citizens.

"Just because someone has a gun, doesn't make them a threat", Wood added.

"If your life is not in danger, my life's not in danger, that gun is going to stay right where I put it".
