ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Opponents of gun control legislation are demonstrating next to the Maryland State House.

The “Guns Across America” rally in Maryland was being held in Annapolis on Saturday. Organizers say the demonstration is being held to highlight Second Amendment rights.

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is backing a comprehensive measure that includes a ban on assault weapons and new licensing requirements for handguns this session. It also includes provisions relating to mental health and school safety.

The demonstration drew a large crowd to Lawyer’s Mall in front the state capitol, where demonstrators carried signs reading “Guns Save Lives” and “It’s not about Guns, It’s about Control.”
