Thousands of gun rights advocates and gun-control supporters held dual demonstrations at a gun show in Saratoga Springs Saturday.

The Saratogian reports that gun-rights demonstrators waved flags and held placards in front of the building where the Saratoga Arms Fair was taking place.

A short distance away, activists from Saratogians for Gun Safety held wooden angel-shaped cutouts in memory of recent shooting victims.

Police said about a half-dozen extra officers were put on duty to maintain order. The 30-year-old arms fair has never required additional police presence before.
