PALMDALE – The Littlerock Tea Party is calling on all local “gun loving patriots” to attend a rally this Saturday to promote public awareness of constitutional rights.

The 2nd Amendment rally will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, August 31, 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).

Organizer Dee Reilman said the rally is being held in response to a spate of gun control bills working their way through the legislature, including a Senate bill to ban semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines and strict new regulations on ammunition.

“As we are at a turning point in political history, it is essential that we protect and defend our Constitution, for without the 2nd, we wouldn’t have the 1st Amendment,” Reilman stated.

Reilman said attendees should bring personalized signs, flags, water and chairs to the rally.

“Invite all your gun loving patriots to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with fellow Patriots… stand with us to protect our 2nd Amendment,” Reilman stated.

For more information on this rally, contact organizer Dee Reilman of the Littlerock Tea Party at 661-944-6282 or dreilman1@yahoo.com.

    I agree, Please support this very important cause that will affect everyone one of us, whether you own a gun or not, whether you can pass a background check or not to obtain a gun, this will affect you, also. United we stand divided we fall.

    WAKE UP LANCASTER! Along with the 2nd Amendment, we need to protect the 14th Amendment. Anchor babies to the AV Hospital? What is Parris trying to do? Run the defense industry out of the AV? Citizenship for sale in Lancaster. What is wrong with this guy? WAKE UP LANCASTER!

    The plethora of gun control bills being proposed in the California Assembly and Senate would likely trouble even most liberal Democrats.

    There are 8 patently unconstitutional gun control bills being railroaded through the Assembly and Senate in Sacramento. And I’m not talking about merely the Second Amendment. 

    They are: AB 48, AB 169, AB 711, AB 108, SB 47, SB 299, SB 396, SB 567, and SJR 1.

    These bills, and others, attempt to eliminate the Constitutionally protected grandfather clause with retroactive laws criminalizing lawfully owned firearms and/or accessories which is expressly forbidden by the U. S. Constitution.

    The US Constitution, Article I, Section 9 and 10 explicitly states:
    “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.”

    These Constitutional violations are in addition to the violations of the Second, Fourth, Fifth and Ninth Amendments; as well as the Fourteenth Amendment cited in the Supreme Court Heller and McDonald decisions.

    Other violations of civil rights include SB 53, which imposes a permit and a fee to buy ammo. A permit and a fee to exercise a civil right is patently unconstitutional. This one will give the street gangs another product to deal besides narcotics. 

    SB 299 also demands that any firearm lost or stolen must be reported to law enforcement, or the owner becomes a felon. This, like most of the Bills, violates the Second, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth and that pesky Fourteenth Amendment.

    All California citizens–not just gun owners–should be concerned about violations of the  Constitutional ban on ex post facto laws. Such civil rights violations will not withstand scrutiny in the courts, and will certainly waste tax money defending the indefensible.

    Democrats should renew their tradition of honoring civil rights, and refuse to pass any retroactive laws or violation of the rights guaranteed to California citizens.

      Well said “Rico”… We need to stand UP now before we lose our RIGHTS!

      I’m all for gun ownership, but why would you not want to report a lost or stolen gun? That law would seem beneficial, and promotes responsibility. It would keep people from aiding felons in obtaining weapons. Your gun is your gun.

        We should apply that to cars, medication, etc than. All those kill more people than guns.

          We do already! If you don’t report your car stolen and it is used for crime related purposes, then you better believe you are held accountable to some extent. Same definitely goes for presciption meds. What’s the big deal with being held accountable for your own weapon? Shouldn’t be a problem unless there are ulterior motives involved..

            I didn’t know about stolen medications, this means I would have to report about theft of Vicoden by a Los Angeles County fireman when they came to take me to ER in March. Its a long story.

      DEFINITION: Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law– A legislative act that singles out an individual or group for punishment without a trial

      Your rights to a trial are not threatened by having to report a lost or stolen gun. Neither are they threatened by having to register to get ammo or submit to a rigorous background check.
