Pro-gun Group Rallies at Oklahoma Capitol
Oklahoma City (AP) - About 80 people -- many of them armed -- rallied outside the Oklahoma Capitol in support of gun rights.
The rally Friday was sponsored by the Oklahoma Defense Force, a group of gun rights supporters that includes a self-described militia led by Ron Cross -- who says the group has about 300 members.
Cross urged action against what he calls government's hostility against gun rights. He says they should organize to oppose any proposal to restrict the right to keep and bear arms.
Among those attending is former Republican state Rep. Charles Key, who said in 2010 that he supported creating a state militia.
A law allowing residents with a handgun license to openly carry weapons was approved last year and many at the rally had their guns on display.
