Gun-rights rally finds Battle Green closed

Town puts temporary hold on all permits

Dozens of people attempted to attend a gun rights rally Friday morning in Lexington despite an emergency moratorium the town placed on gatherings on the Battle Green after the Boston Marathon bombings this week.

Police Chief Mark Corr said several groups, ranging in size from about 10 to as many as 80 people, began arriving around 9:30 a.m. Friday for a Second Amendment rally that had at one time been ­issued a permit for Lexington’s historic downtown common.
