Photo Gallery: Gun rights supporters rally in Oklahoma 5/18

Lance Gentry of Chouteau, Okla.,  holds two of three signs he brought to the rally.  Organizers said an estimated 1800 people from throughout Oklahoma crowded into the south plaza of the state Capitol Saturday afternoon, Jan. 19, 2013, to voice their support for their second amendment rights and to express  concerns about proposed gun control legislation being considered by the federal government in the wake of the school shooting in Connecticut last month. Many  held aloft hand-made signs or waved American flags as speakers addressed the gun rights rally.  Travis attended with his wife. He said he created the sign he holds. Gentry brought his family with him and said he came because he "is a law abiding citizen" and he felt he needed to "stand up for freedoms."  Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
