LITTLE ROCK, AR- Saturday one of the many open carry walks being staged across the state went off without a hitch.

More than 100 gun toting Arkansans walked through down town Little Rock.

"120 people out today," said Nicholas Stehle. "Which is about double our biggest crowd so we're pretty happy with that."

The numbers keep growing as the Arkansas carry members organize each weekend in a different city.

"We've walked in quite a few cities, Little, Rock, North Little Rock, and next weekend in Pine Bluff," said Stehle. "So we're making a lot of progress as we walk across the state."

Stehle is the chairman of the organization and he's organizing more marches in bigger Arkansas cities.

"A lot of folks live in the cities and it does us no good if only the small towns recognize the law," he said.

From the looks of the turn out and the amount of attention they're getting, they're on the right track.
