Gun rights demonstrators to rally at Ore. Capitol

 Posted: 8:15 AM February 08, 2013

SALEM, Ore. — Hundreds of armed protesters are expected to descend on the Oregon Capitol Friday to demonstrate their gun rights.

The demonstration is a response to calls for stiffer gun laws in the wake of recent mass shootings.

It's legal to openly carry a weapon in public, and people with concealed handgun licenses can carry their weapons in the Capitol.

Organizers say there are no plans to bring Friday's rally inside the Capitol, but individuals may decide to enter the building on their own.
