A private association is putting out a call for volunteers, armed or unarmed, to provide outdoor security for Trump supporters traveling to the presidents campaign rally Friday night in Tupelo, Mississippi.
The group Oath Keepers, which calls itself nonpartisan, said in a notice on its website that it needs help keeping the rally attendees safe after a recent Trump rally in Minneapolis at which some of the presidents supporters were harassed and assaulted on their way to and from the arena.
We generally use both armed and unarmed volunteers in our security operations, so if you have a CCW [carrying a concealed weapon permit] valid in Mississippi, that may be very useful, the groups statement says. If you dont, please volunteer anyway since we will also have a role for unarmed volunteers.
Local and state law enforcement agencies, and the Secret Service, coordinate in providing heavy security at presidential campaign rallies.
Oath Keepers said it is not affiliated with the Trump campaign but has protected rally-goers at three other Trump events this year in New Mexico, Minneapolis and Dallas. The association has former police and ex-military personnel among its membership, and says its needed to protect citizens from street violence by antifa and other leftist groups.

Constitutional carry is silly, wait, really silly?
I never said anything about the prospect of them coming in to “protect the President”, I merely commented that one of their “spokesmen” seemed to have his info on current MS Carry laws a bit wrong.
Sorry. Wasnt meant toward your comment particulars.
Oath Keepers is a really good group.
Then why did so many Trump supporters get the crap kicked out of them?
That jerk has been an anti-Trumper and publicly cuddling up to liberals here in Colorado. Trump needs to let him die off. We’ll pick the seat up next time.
THAT is what we need, so get over it.
Colorado is NOT on the path to get more conservative in the next 6 years.
If America fires all the Senators who aren't full throated Trump supporters, America is through.
“so get over it.”
You don’t live here so piss off. Cory will vote to impeach, guaranteed.
I know Cory and have strongly suggested he get on the Trump train.
There are planned unity events and you don't have a clue what you're talking about.
“80124 look it up!”
You always sound like one of those Kali fruits that moved here and want to change us to Kali liberalism.
Cory is a goner in this next election because he speaks weasel words and refuses to take a stand. Hell, just the phrase “unity event” are tasteless liberal weasel words.
Cory needed to grow a backbone years ago, but the dumb little kid sticks his finger in the wind and follows eGOP leadership. He isn’t following Trump, he’s following the eGOP. His voting record has nothing to do with Trump.
I just told you that I've made clear that Sen. Gardner needs to get on the Trump train or lose.
You sound like one of those insecure guys, compensating by being a keyboard bully.
No problem - I sometimes “misaddress” a post.
