AR15’s & THE SECOND AMENDMENT: SEPARATING FACT FROM FICTION 
 

Ben Brandon, master instructor with the Civilian Marksmanship Program, will be the featured speaker at the Chattanooga Tea Party’s meeting Thursday at 6:30 p.m.  Mr. Brandon, an expert on the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment, will "expose the deception that is often used by the media and politicians in the debate over guns, but he will also provide a historical overview of the reason for the 2nd Amendment and why calls for banning or controlling the ownership of AR15’s and other targeted firearms must be resisted at all cost."

The meeting will take place at The Century Club Banquet Hall, 3221 Harrison Pike (off Access Road, just south of the Highway 153-Amnicola Highway intersection, next to The Lighting Gallery).   

Participants are asked to bring a non-perishable canned good item as the Chattanooga Tea Party is committed to supporting the local Chattanooga Area Food Bank.
