PHOENIX Gun advocates in Arizona have joined nationwide rallies in support of gun rights.

The group Guns Across America Rally for Arizona held Saturday a largely peaceful rally Saturday at the Arizona State Capitol. Hundreds of protesters, some carrying rifles and holstered handguns, waved signs that said "We respect gun rights" and "Defend your constitution before it is too weak to defend."

One man dressed as a Revolutionary War Minuteman carried an antique 1800s-style long rifle, along with sign saying "Tyrants Beware - 1776."

The rally is one of many slated to take place on state capitols across the country thanks to a loosely organized campaign via social media. The rallies were sponsors by the Washington D.C.-based group Political Media.
