BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — About 70 gun rights activists braved the strong winds and cold temperatures Saturday on the steps of the North Dakota Capitol building to protest new federal efforts to strengthen gun control laws.

Andre Palmier, of Fargo, organized the event in conjunction with Guns Across America, an online group that pledges to help educate America on the right to bear arms. The North Dakota event was one of several that took place at state capitols around the country Saturdya.

The Forum reports that Palmier told the crowd they were standing against those that wanted to strip their rights. He says supporters will not stand for people trying to infringe on their Second Amendment rights.

The North Dakota Legislative Assembly is set to discuss several gun-related bills throughout this session.
