East Texans organize Day of Resistance 2nd Amendment rally

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

This Saturday, Tyler citizens will be participating in the national movement, A Day of Resistance, in response to the country's debate on gun control.

A peacefully rally is scheduled for February 23, 2013 from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at Rose City Flying Clays located at 8474 County Road 485 in Tyler.

Organizers say more than 100 cities nationwide will be hosting similar events to, "protect the 2nd amendment."

"A Day of Resistance is a movement in response to what organizers believe are the unconstitutional actions of President Obama on Jan. 16, 2013, when he issued 23 executive actions against the 2nd amendment Constitutional right to bear arms," says a release written by even organizers.

"By organizing locally, neighbor can stand with neighbor and reassert their community's right to determine their own destiny," organizers say.

Guest speakers include Grassroots America, We the People's Executive Director JoAnn Fleming, Smith County Sheriff Larry Smith and State Representative Bryan Hughes.

"It's not a right that somebody just woke up one day and gave us. It's a right-- unalienable right to keep and bear arms. It's one of the first ten... It's number 2. It's very important and it's important for us to be able to keep those rights," says Sheriff Smith.
