Article Photos: Crowd rallies at Oklahoma Capitol for gun rights 13/23

Ted Travis of Guthrie, Okla.,  joins others in the crowd in a group wave as rally participants pose for a group picture as the rally concludes. Organizers said an estimated 1800 people from throughout Oklahoma crowded into the south plaza at 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.
