Gun activists suspicious of Obama

Advocates blame the US administration for putting right to own guns in jeopardy.

    Hundreds of gun-rights advocates from across the US have gathered in Washington DC to promote what they say is their right to bear arms, a right which is granted by the US constitution.

    They say the best protection against violence is by letting law-abiding citizens more freedom to exercise their right to carry firearms, something they believe the administration of Barack Obama is jeopardising.
