70 brave cold and wind to rally for gun rights at ND captiol

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — About 70 gun rights activists braved the strong winds and cold temperatures Saturday on the steps of the North Dakota Capitol building to protest new federal efforts to strengthen gun control laws.

Andre Palmier, of Fargo, organized the event in conjunction with Guns Across America, an online group that pledges to help educate America on the right to bear arms. The North Dakota event was one of several that took place at state capitols around the country Saturday.
