Gun-rights group plans open-carry walk in NLR

A gun-rights group says it plans to hold an open-carry walk in North Little Rock this weekend.

Arkansas Carry said in a statement that members will walk at 11 a.m. Saturday from Schlotsky's Deli on JFK Boulevard to Cherry Hill Drive and then back again with their guns on display.

The group contends a law that went into effect last year allows the open carrying of firearms, although Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has contested that interpretation.

Several other similar walks have been held in other locations around the state.

Arkansas Carry said the North Little Rock Police Department was notified of the march, described in a statement as an "open carry celebration walk."

A police spokesman wasn't immediately available for comment.
