110th State Representative Travis Couture-Lovelady reported on his Facebook page today that almost 200 people showed up for Tuesday night’s gun rights forum with five area county sheriffs, including Ellis County Sheriff Ed Harbin.
“We talked about the needs of our jail, the 2nd amendment and there were a lot of good questions,” Harbin told Eagle News. “People are concerned about what the Federal government might do on gun issues. It was very informative.” State Representative Sue Boldra was also in attendance.
The event was held at Thirsty’s Brew Pub in Hays and sponsored by the Big First Tea Party.
Sheriffs from Rooks, Rush, Trego, and Russell County also participated.
