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.

    If you like the NRA concept of gun control, why not move to Mogadishu, Somalia. They got all the gun rights you are looking for.

    Re: "People who have such a visceral response to the mere words "gun control" and conflate that with "they're gonna take our guns away!"
    goo goo, we feel that way because vile, devious wannabe tyrants within our society, working within the Democrat Patty and enabled by 'useful idiots' like you, have plainly stated in unguarded moments that confiscation is the ultimate goal of their agenda. We've watched their 'fellow travelers' in other countries use the strategy quite successfully to disarm the people. One of the apostles of totalitarianism long ago laid out the reason for doing so......."One man with a gun can control 100 without one." Vladimir Lenin
