DENVER — A gun-rights group denies it's being insensitive by scheduling a rally in the same Denver-area park where another group plans to read the names of gun violence victims on the anniversary of the Colorado theater shootings.

Rocky Mountain Gun Owners scheduled a rally for Friday to coincide with the ceremony planned by Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

Both gatherings will at be at noon in Cherry Creek State Park.

Park officials couldn't immediately say how close together the events would be.

Rocky Mountain Gun Owners on Thursday accused Mayors Against Illegal Guns of trying to politicize the tragedy at the suburban Denver movie theater. Twelve people were killed and 70 were hurt one year ago Saturday.

A spokesman for Mayors Against Illegal Guns didn't immediately return a call.
