— A constitutional rights rally was held Saturday morning on the steps of the Limestone County Courthouse.

A crowd gathered to read and discuss the Bill of Rights, which they feel is being threatened by federal laws, like the new gun control measures being discussed in Washington, D.C.

Local politicians and law enforcement officials were present, but were not permitted to address the audience.

While gun control was not the main topic of discussion, it was mentioned multiple times.
