Pro-gun rally held at Capitol

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A second amendment advocacy group held a rally Monday afternoon at the State Capitol.

Defend Louisiana says they're taking a stand to protect their rights, opposing new gun control laws.

Since 20 children and six teachers were killed at a Connecticut school in December, the battle for those wanting tougher gun laws and those that cite the second amendment.

"The fact of the matter is the gun didn't kill anybody - one deranged individual did," said Bradly Gulotta with Defend Louisiana. "Nobody wants to see anyone die of anything, but there was violence before the gun and there will be violence if the gun ever goes away."
