Dozens Rally for Gun Rights at State Capitol (May 08, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Firearms were on display at the Oklahoma Capitol as a group of about 30 people rallied for an expansion of gun rights in the state.

The event on Tuesday was sponsored by OK2A, a group the supports furthering the rights of gun owners in Oklahoma. The group is pushing several open-carry bills that will allow Oklahomans to openly carry their weapons.

An open-carry bill was vetoed by Democratic Gov. Brad Henry two years ago, and a separate measure was killed last year in a House committee.

This year, the Legislature appears poised to send an open-carry bill to Gov. Mary Fallin, who has indicated her support.

Vendors from several gun shops had firearms and holsters on display, and lawmakers who are sponsoring pro-gun legislation spoke to the group.
