HOBART | Northern Indiana Patriots will show support for gun rights at an event from 9:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. today at Mundell Field, 2 N. Wisconsin St.
Members of the local Tea Party organization will be on hand to give out free bumper stickers and pocket constitutions, representative Deborah Miller said.
In addition, members will be asking individuals to sign a petition asking for support of the Second Amendment, Miller said.
The petition, which will be sent to state senators, requests that they "safeguard the rights of law-abiding citizens and be an advocate in protecting the Second Amendment from those who seek to weaken our rights."
The organization, with membership in Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties, has been in existence for two years, Miller said.
