ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Sarah Palin made a weekend public appearance after keeping a low profile since she resigned as Alaska governor July 26.

The former GOP vice presidential candidate gave a speech on Second Amendment rights Saturday night at a banquet in Anchorage.

The event capped a four-day National Rifle Association seminar hosted by the Alaska Gun Collectors Association.

NRA director Wayne Anthony Ross, president of the gun collectors’ group, says Palin attended the dinner with her husband, Todd. Ross says about 130 people were at the banquet.

Gun collector groups from outside the state presented Palin with lifetime memberships. She also received the NRA’s Gold Medal Award of Merit for the Promotion of Gun Collecting.
