Gun control group rallies in Boston

About 200 supporters of tighter gun control rallied at the State House on Saturday morning, calling for legislation that would ban assault weapons and require background checks on all gun buyers.

The rally, organized by the Boston chapter of national grass-roots group One Million Moms for Gun Control, coincided with similar events across the country. A march at the Capitol Building in Washington drew thousands of participants, according to the Associated Press.
