Gun Appreciation Day was put together by a coalition of gun rights groups and conservative groups in defense of the constitutional right to bear arms.
The national firearms event occurred as U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) prepared to introduce gun control legislation for a federal assault weapons ban.
Numerous pro-gun groups participated in Gun Appreciation Day 2013, the largest gun rights gathering in U.S. history.
Supporters of the Founding Fathers, the U.S. Constitution, and Ronald Reagan turned out in communities across America for the first-of-its-kind national gathering.
Gun owners and gun rights advocates from all 50 states helped to make Gun Appreciation Day a success which organizers say will lead to a 2nd event next year.
