SMITH COUNTY (KYTX) - A group of people in Smith County plan to have an open carry celebration and march through downtown Tyler on July 4th.

The scheduled event begins at 10 a.m. in the 200 block of N. Border Ave. Event goers will carry rifles with muzzles pointing down during the march.

The event is described as being a family friendly celebration intended to bring awareness of the legality of openly carrying firearms in Texas.

Organizers hope the event will initiate renewed discussion about the Constitution and the natural right of self-defense.
