But donít look for it in Harris County
Gun rights activists are holding a different kind of protest today against possible new laws across the country.
“We’ve asked all the great citizens in America to come out to their county courthouse to sign a letter addressed to their sheriff asking him to support his oath,” Gun Rights Across America President Eric Reed told KTRH.
However, if you are in Harris County and want to participate, you won’t be able to. Reed says that’s because Sheriff Adrian Garcia wasn’t cooperative with his group.
“One of my organizers from Harris County had contacted Sheriff Garcia via phone to find out where he stands on supporting the Second Amendment and he slammed the phone down on her,” Reed said.
So will there be an event today in Harris County?
“Due to this happening, and Sheriff Garcia’s stance, we have pulled the event from Harris County because it’s not going to do any good,” Reed stated.
KTRH will be reaching out to Sheriff Garcia’s office for further comment.
Reed says counties like Montgomery have been open to his idea, which Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson supports.
“Anything that raises public awareness that a peace officer has no obligation to enforce laws that are unconstitutional is a positive thing,” Patterson told KTRH.
Patterson likes the passive form this protest is taking.
“There’s a time and place for being loud and demonstrative and there’s a time and place to show folks that we are serious about the Second Amendment,” Patterson explained.
The event takes place between 11am and 1pm today.
