Supporters of Maine’s “open carry” law gathered with their guns in Portland’s Back Cove on Sunday afternoon for a rally organized by University of Southern Maine freshman Shane Belanger.

The event, designed to highlight Maine’s gun laws, sparked a counter-demonstration as well, as protesters pointed out the dangers of owning and carrying guns without a permit.

Despite some spirited disagreements between the two rallies, both demonstrations were peaceful, with police standing by just in case.
