MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Waving signs and cheering loudly, hundreds of Second Amendment supporters gathered at the Alabama Capitol to voice their opinions about gun control.
The Montgomery Advertiser reported ( http://on.mgmadv.com/WjjAUn ) that several speakers said proposed gun control legislation would restrict their rights. Speakers urged government officials to leave responsible gun owners alone.
State Agriculture Commissioner John McMillan warned that federal government officials were trying to control every aspect of people's lives.
The event in Montgomery was organized by Bianca and Stephen Burton of Birmingham.
Bianca Burton said the event was about supporting the Second Amendment and an opportunity to counter what she called misinformation.
People at the rally were given the opportunity to sign petitions, which will be sent to their U.S. senators.
