Hundreds of people turned out Saturday in Huntington to support gun rights and to oppose several measures offered by Gov. Cuomo and President Obama.
More than 200 people staged the rally, gathering at each corner of the Route 110 and Jericho Turnpike intersection. They carried signs supporting several causes, from the Second Amendment to opposition to Obamacare, and waved American and Gadsen Don't Tread on Me flags. One man repeatedly shouted about New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has led the demand for more gun control. Another demonstrator sought more prayer in schools.
Scores of motorists honked in support as they cleared the busy intersection and won cheers and raised fists in a friendly salute from the demonstrators.

The demonstration was organized by the Conservative Society for Action and was held on what was billed as the first national Gun Appreciation Day.
