PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A group of moms turned out to express their support of gun control Saturday morning in downtown Portland.

The group gathered to locally as part of national awareness efforts organized by One Million Moms for Gun Control, which formed following the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT.

Mayor Charlie Hales and State Sen. Ginny Burdick appeared and gave speeches as a show of support for the moms. 

Also in attendance was a man carrying an assault rifle, peacefully demonstrating his right to carry a firearm.

People on both sides of the issue remained peaceful throughout the event.
