Second Amendment gun rights rally: Providence, R.I., 1/19/14

A crowd of hundreds braved a punishing winter wind Sunday to demonstrate on the front steps of the magnificent Rhode Island State House in support of second-amendment rights. The rally, which I covered for The Providence Journal, was one of 50 such planned for every state by Gun Rights Across America.

Scenes from the rally:

Atop the State House dome stands The Independent Man, a monument to Roger Williams, father of Rhode Island, first in America to espouse freedom of speech and religion

The State House steps are popular for wedding photos. This party posed before the gun-rights rally began. What a bitterly cold day to marry!
