Crowd gathers for open-carry march in Seattle (KOMO News)

SEATTLE -- A crowd came together Sunday evening in downtown Seattle to support open-carry gun laws.

The rally was in McGraw Square, just north of Westlake Park and was organized by the group Patriot Prayer.

The group's organizer says last week's school shooting in Texas shows the need for action on gun rights.

He wants lawmakers to allow school staff to carry guns to protect themselves and their students.

Since the Texas shooting, a state lawmaker is calling for a special session to consider tougher gun legislation.
