Ben Brandon and a team of NRA-certified shooting coaches at Project Appleseed will be the featured speakers at the Chattanooga Tea Party’s monthly meeting Thursday, Feb. 20.
Mr. Brandon will provide insight on what transpired at the Jan. 20 Second Amendment rally in Richmond, Va., talk about potential Second Amendment-related legislation in Tennessee and discuss some of the lessons of April 19, 1775 that Americans of all ages should never forget, officials said. He'll also provide information on upcoming Project Appleseed events and answer questions.
The meeting will take place from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Homebuilders Association of Greater Chattanooga, 3221 Harrison Pike in Chattanooga. Just take Access Road, which runs parallel to Highway 153, south from Amnicola Highway and the Highway 153 exit. The building lies at the corner of Access Road and Harrison Pike.
"Project Appleseed is a nationwide program that teaches rifle marksmanship skills that have been passed down from generation to generation and reconnects Americans with the people and events of colonial America," officials said. "Participants are taught skills that allow a rifleman to be accurate out to 500 yards using a standard rifle with iron sights. This ability is traditionally known as mastering the 'Rifleman's Quarter Mile' and is an American tradition that has been part of this nation from its very first days."
Also at February’s meeting, Harris King, regional director for Dr. Manny Sethi’s campaign for U.S. Senate, will provide a 10 minute briefing on Dr. Manny’s run for the seat to be vacated by retiring Senator Lamar Alexander. Mr. King will also provide printed information for attendees to review and share with others.
The meeting will be free and open to the public. Donations are welcome.
