Gun Advocates Rally at the State Capitol Submitted: 01/19/2013
Madison - Wisconsin gun advocates joined nationwide rallies in support of gun rights today.

The group "Wisconsin Guns Across America" held a peaceful rally outside the Capitol in Madison.

The capitol police say 500 to 600 people showed up, and there were no issues.

The Facebook page for the event called it a ``peaceful picketing protest." The rally is one of many slated to take place at State Capitols across the country thanks to a loosely organized campaign via social media.
