OLYMPIA — A gun rights rally at the Capitol in Olympia is expected to draw 2,500 people, including some with weapons.

The Department of Enterprise Services says it issued a permit to "2nd Enforcers" for the "Firearm Freedom Rally" scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon near Tivoli Fountain.

The department says organizers have worked with the Washington State Patrol to ensure that the rally is not perceived as threatening.
