Gun Rights Advocates Rally In Washington

Play associated audio

WASHINGTON (AP) Hundreds of gun rights supporters are in the nation's capital calling for the federal government to uphold their right to bear arms.

Demonstrators gathered late Monday morning on the grounds of the Washington Monument for the Second Amendment March. They carried signs reading,

"Which part of shall not be infringed confuses you?" and wore bright orange stickers, saying "Guns save lives."

Organizers say although they find the District of Columbia's strict gun laws unconstitutional, they urged participants to come unarmed.

Speakers at the event urged protesters to take action in this fall's primaries and vote in candidates who will support their issues.

Activists say they chose April 19 because it's the date of the Revolutionary War battles of Lexington and Concord.
