Following similar rallies in Fort Worth, Dallas, Temple and McAllen, a Tyler-based group pushing for open carry gun laws will host a march through downtown Longview on Saturday.

More than 125 East Texans had signed up to participate in Open Carry Tyler’s march by Monday afternoon according to the event’s Facebook page, but organizers said they hoped several hundred more will join the rally.

The Labor Day Open Carry Celebration walk is scheduled to begin about 10 a.m. at the Gregg County Courthouse and organizers, like Matt Thiessen, are encouraging attendees to “join us in a public exercise of our God-given right to self-defense.”

GOD-GIVEN RIGHT? Are these people certifiably crazy? Someone, anyone, tell me where God "gives" the right to carry assault rifles in a march, no less, out in public, within the pages of the Bible!! The God I worship demands that we live in peace, promote brotherhood, seek HIS are nothing but a pack of liars using God in a most obscene manner. Leave God out of your march and quit ascribing your "right" to carry guns in public to God...fools!
