The eight rallies are supported by the New Jersey Second Amendment Society, the Fair Tax Foundation, the New Jersey Constitution Party and the New Jersey Libertarian Party.

Rallies begin Saturday, April 13, in Woodbridge on Route 35 at Main Street, and on the Green in Newton. Sunday, protests are scheduled at the Asbury Park Press building on Route 66 in Neptune and also at Freedom Park in Medford, the community where Republicans4BurlCo protest the Burlington County Sheriff's gun buy-back initiative Saturday.

The remainder of the Sunday demonstrations take place at the Union County Courthouse, Elizabeth; The Green in Teaneck; Veteran's Alliance Park Wayne; and the Warren County Courthouse in Belvidere.

"If you are a conservative, Second Amendment activist, libertarian, reform, gun activist, gun-rifle club member," said statewide coordinator Michele Talamo in a prepared statement, "you need to show up and be counted with others who have simply had enough of the assault on your rights and the liberty we all hold near and dear to our hearts."
