PALMDALE – The Littlerock Tea Party is calling on all local patriots to attend a rally this Saturday to promote public awareness of constitutional rights.
“This is a peaceful rally for all Americans to protect and defend our 2nd Amendment rights to keep and bear arms. Bring your patriotism, a sign, flag and a chair…. Stand shoulder-to-shoulder with patriots who defend and protect our 2nd Amendment rights,” reads the invitation promoting the event.
The rally will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday (Feb. 23) on 10th Street West, just north of Rancho Vista Boulevard. (On the Applebee’s Restaurant corner, across the street from the A.V. Mall entrance).
State Senator Steve Knight will be joining the rally and speaking briefly about the 2nd Amendment, according to organizer Dee Reilman.
“We would like to put Congress on notice that ‘we the people’ are watching and will not allow government to continue to strip our constitutional rights,” states Reilman.
Saturday’s local rally is being held in conjunction with the national Day of Resistance, a grassroots movement marked by nationwide rallies on Feb. 23 that focus on 2nd Amendment issues and President Barack Obama’s push for gun control.
More than 50,000 people have already signed up for 97 rallies in more than 30 states across the country, according to published reports.
