Hundreds of people gathered at Depot Park in Kalispell Saturday for a pro-gun rally.

The event was one of dozens of "Rally for Our Rights", planned across the country and led by students from local high schools.

Protester Jane Roverge said she was anxious further gun control would infringe on her rights.

Saturday's rallies come less than three weeks after hundreds of thousands marched in Washington, New York and other USA cities to demand tougher gun laws after the February school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17, The Associated Press reported.

The crowd dispersed shortly before 2:15 Saturday afternoon, taking their American and "Don't Tread on Me" flags and packing up their pro-gun signs as patriotic music played them off the Capitol grounds. Those who were there were standing up to what they call "anti-gun propaganda", especially in the wake of the Parkland, Florida school shooting. "Any restriction completely goes against our rights".

According to a early Associated Press count, more than 135 people attended the rally in Atlanta, and more were arriving.

Proposals to allow ME schools to allow staff to carry firearms failed earlier this year in the Legislature, which remains largely gridlocked on gun rights and gun control issues.

However, many here say they feel like their gun rights are slowly getting chipped away and that gun owners have been portrayed in a negative way. But, unlike other capitals, the State House in Augusta is considered a gun-free zone.

Gubernatorial candidates Sen. Garrett Mason, R-Lisbon Falls, and Gorham businessman Sean Moody also spoke, said Gulya, as did Sen. Angus King in November; Mark Holbrook, a Brunswick Republican running against Democratic U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree in the 1st District: and Franklin County Sheriff Scott Nichols.

Daniyel Baron helped organize the DE rally.

"I don't think we had any issues whatsoever", he said.
