The Fox 13 clip showed a few slung rifles (including the AR with a massive drum). I think they did pretty well, but their last statement about facing an "uphill battle" seemed a little condescending.

The KSL story:
SALT LAKE CITY — A Pro Gun Rally took place across the U.S. at noon on Saturday. In one of the largest rallies, Utahns gathered at the Capitol Building to demonstrate their support for their 2nd Amendment rights.

When the rally started at noon on Saturday, roughly 1,500 people had arrived. By the end, Capitol police estimate 3,000 people attended, signaling to politicians that any gun control legislation is going to have a lot of opposition.

"Any attempt to take any of that away from us is unconstitutional and in my opinion, blasphemous," said Holladay resident Bruce Clements.

He is just one of thousands who stood outside a very cold Utah State Capitol to voice their concerns about gun control.

"It's not the gun. It's the people," said Utah Shooting Sports Council Chair Clark Aposhian.

Aposhian is an advocate of responsible gun ownership. He feels gun control is a step in the wrong direction and against the 2nd Amendment.

"It's our watch now to take care of it. We want to make it so we give it to our children as good, if not better, then when we get it," Aposhian said.

One of the biggest responses came when a speaker talked about the letter the Utah Sheriff's Association recently sent to Obama, saying, in part, "As the duly-elected sheriffs of our respective counties, we will enforce the rights guaranteed to our citizens by the Constitution. No federal official will be permitted to descend upon our constituents and take from them what the Bill of Rights — in particular Amendment II — has given them."

Along with others in the rally, Clements agreed.

"It's a slap in the face to all those veterans who have given their lives for this country and for the freedoms we enjoy," Clements said.

One speaker said the rally's organizers intend to hold rallies in coming months throughout the year and expect to gain more supporters each following month.

Let's say there were, conservatively, 1,000 firearms at this event. All of these were under no form of control, other than that exercised by those possessing them. And not a darn thing happened, except a rather loud message being sent. Then, we read of these 3 gun show ND's, where all kinds of external control is in place. Odd?

It was cold but fun. I sadly ended up CC'ing because of the temperature and my inability to score the holster I wanted for my little metal friend. Oh well. It was good to see a variety of people there and say hey to some people from the boards. The only thing that would have made the day better would have been to blow up pop cans for target practice but I'm fighting off a cold. So I did the next best thing and watched Liam Neeson shoot bad guys in Taken 2.

Gay gun owners appeared to be well represented, at least in the news reports.

The Deseret News reported about Seth Perkins of Bountiful, Utah:

Several people at the rally had assault rifles slung over their shoulders and holstered pistols at their sides.

'It's my right. That's what this rally is about,' said Seth Perkins, of Bountiful, who also wore a sash proclaiming, 'Legalize Gay.'

Perkins, who said he was 'a bit more open-minded' than many in the crowd, said he didn't believe the president was coming after his guns.

'I don't think that's quite what he's trying to do,' Perkins said.

The Salt Lake Tribune featured an image of Perkins' unconcealed AR-15 rifle and his pistol.

And, KSL Television news included my brief comment about the rally, but didn't show off my OC SIG.

I did not see as much OC as I thought there would be....during the rally itself, I only saw that rifle slung over the shoulder of the guy on the steps.....but walking back to the car...I noticed only 2 OCers.....I was CC, that's just how I roll....most were probably CC due to weather....

I was OC, and I saw quite a few others, but most were CC. I know my wife and friends were. We had a good time...then went to Gallensons afterward.
