HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)-- Gun owners flocked to Hartford and crowded the steps of the capitol building, for Guns Across America.
"This is not a gun free zone. I think this is a don't even think about it zone," said John Biedler, CT Citizens Defense League.
David Ouimette organized this and he says they need to protect the Second Amendment more than ever.
"They're trying to pass further legislation on gun laws. They're trying to restrict our rights and this is the American public saying no more.We need to stand up for ourselves," said Ouimette.
Many wore ribbons in honor of the Sandy Hook victims.
"It was a tragedy. I mean there's no denying it, but using that to take away the rights of law abiding citizens is the wrong way to go about it," said Ouimette.
This is one of 50 rallies across the country addressing second amendment rights. It's all in reaction to President Obama's proposal for stricter gun control legislation.
"I think a lot of the things that are being proposed are not common sense solutions. I think some of it's grandstanding, and I think that maybe both sides need to sit down properly and come up with real solutions," said Geoff Viscount, of Milford.
While they rallied, others flocked to gun stores and ranges, exercising their rights to show support.
