Open Carry members hold victory rally in Arlington
Fresh off its victory over the City of Arlington, gun rights group Open Carry Tarrant County held a celebration rally Thursday night.
Members grabbed their rifles and shotguns and handed out flyers as they marched across part of Arlington. Unlike in the past, though, they didn’t have to worry about being ticketed.
The group's president, Kory Watkins filed suit against the city, saying its new law banning demonstrators from handing out literature at intersections is unconstitutional. State law allows firefighters and police officers to do it.
