Local Second Amendment supporters in Indiana will join forces for a national letter-signing campaign—dubbed “Operation Sheriff Reach”— to be held in every county/parish/borough across the country from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13.

Citizens will meet here at Valparaiso Square.

Eric Reed, the national event coordinator, plans for this event to be a peaceful collaboration to encourage the local county sheriff to uphold the U.S. Constitution and not enforce any executive orders or unconstitutional laws.

“We are asking citizens to sign a letter to encourage their local Sheriff to uphold the U.S. Constitution and not enforce any unconstitutional gun bans the federal government may enact,” Reed said.

Letters will be available for attendees to sign, which will be given to the local sheriff.

“This event is quickly gaining traction on social media outlets such as, where thousands of individuals nationwide have signed up to attend through the ‘Gun Rights Across America’ main event page,” a statement released last month said. “Individual states, including Indiana, have pages set up to facilitate coordination of local efforts.”

Gun Rights Across America is not associated with any candidate, candidate committee, or PAC. Its goal is to educate citizens about their Second Amendment rights; legislation and regulations on a local, state, and federal level; and to educate law makers about firearms and gun owners.
