    Pro-gun activists launched their pre-planned gun rallies at “high noon” in 49 states across the U.S. Saturday, a movement that they claim is in response to President Barack Obama’s proposals to reduce gun violence. Organized by a group called Guns Across America, the rallies are reportedly taking place at state capitals. The debate over gun control intensified in America following the Newtown massacre in which 20 children were gunned down. Vice President Joe Biden has promised executive action on gun control as soon as possible.
