Nationally, the National Constitutional Coalition of Patriotic Americans scheduled rallies at every state capitol.

Some organizers urged people to bring unloaded rifles to the rallies. KOLO’s Bridget Chavez saw one person with a rifle in Carson City and a few people with handguns.

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

Organizers said they wanted to get out a message in support of gun rights.
