Rally for gun rights held at the Statehouse


COLUMBUS -- Ohioans For Concealed Carry, Ohio Carry, and Ohio Gun Owners hosted a "Rally For Our Rights" event at the Ohio Statehouse Saturday afternoon.

The rally was held in response to proposed Senate Bill 260 which would ban a person from acquiring high-ammunition assault weapons and require the state's Attorney General to establish a firearm and ammunition transactions database.

The event comes almost a month after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen people were killed and another 17 were injured.

The organizations are against any new gun restrictions, and would rather see current laws be better enforced.
