Another rally to protest alleged Bureau of Land Management plans to take land from property owners along the Texas side of the Red River is drawing lots of attention.

The rally this weekend is being organized by a gun rights group and is called "Gathering of the American Patriot Red River Rally."

It is being held Saturday from 1 to 3 pm in Burkburnett.

The organizer is "Come and Take it Texas," which promotes the rights of the open carry of firearms.

The group says as many as 1,000 people could attend.

Land owners, politicians and others have been protesting plans by the BLM to re-survey land to determine what is public and what is private.
