Gun Rights Advocates Fight Back

Gun rights advocates did their own protesting and rallying outside the Vermont Statehouse, where tougher gun restriction laws have been passed.

As part of their protest, the group handed out high-capacity magazines.

Gun rights supporters protesting gun restriction legislation have gathered outside the Vermont Statehouse to urge the governor not to sign the bill.

Police estimate hundreds of protesters turned out Saturday to show their opposition a day after the Vermont legislature passed the gun restrictions package.

Protesters were giving away 1,200 30-round magazines. The legislation would ban high-capacity magazines and rapid-fire devices known as bump stocks, in addition to raising the legal age. It also would expand background checks for private gun sales.
