GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Hundreds of Grand Valley residents are preaching the message of freedom.

Freedom Colorado held a rally at Lincoln Park in Grand Junction Saturday afternoon. The Pledge of Allegiance followed by the National Anthem kicked off the event, and the rally encouraged attendees to fight for their rights.

President of Freedom Colorado Kevin McCarney says more than ever, now is an important time to rally for freedom.

"We've seen our rights eroded away. we're seeing an overreach by our state legislature at an incredible level- across the board," he said.

The rally had a "2nd Amendment Bake Sale", bbq, live entertainment and different guest speakers.

The Mesa County Patriots, Republican Women and the Delta, Montrose and Mesa County Republicans were some of the groups in attendance.

Saturday’s event was not related to the GJResult.Tea Party who has a trade name “Freedom Colorado.”

    How can kevin mckarney be the 'president' of an organization he has no ties or membership in, and the LEGAL OWNERS of the name have retained legal services to stop the ILLEGAL use of the name "Freedom Colorado"?

    GJResult.Tea Party does not have A trade name “Freedom Colorado”. They have THE trade name Freedom Colorado. There is only one. And the WSCA group using that trade name in this rally is not Freedom Colorado or GJResult.Tea Party. They’re wannabes.
