"Guns Across America Rally" attracts hundreds

BOISE, Idaho- There were plenty of rifles slung on shoulders and pistols packed in holsters as hundreds of gun rights supporters rallied at the Idaho Capitol.

An estimated 800 people showed up at Saturday's event. It was part of an effort by gun owners across the country to show opposition to gun control measures proposed by President Barack Obama and lawmakers in many states.

The rally was one of two in Idaho. Gun rights advocates also met in Coeur d'Alene.
