Rally for gun rights in Madison

  • In Maine hundreds of guns rights advocates demonstrated in front of the State House in Augusta

Supporters of gun rights held rallies across the country on Saturday amid a national campaign started by survivors of the Parkland, Fla. school shooting aimed at reducing gun violence.

The national discussion of guns has escalated in recent months following the largest mass shooting in USA history in Las Vegas in which 58 concert goers lost their lives and the recent school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 dead.

"If you have a building and you take a brick out every so often, after a while you're not going to have a building", Westley Williams told the news service.

Those pushing for more gun control in the wake of a school shooting in Florida and mass shooting in Nevada push a left-leaning agenda, whether intentionally or not, several attendees said.

Saturday's rallies came less than three weeks after hundreds of thousands marched in Washington, New York and other US cities to demand tougher gun laws after the February school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17.
