JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The daughter of a Jackson County man who was found shot to death plans to increase her efforts to support the Second Amendment.

Christopher Lee, 21, and Garrett Chamblis, 20,  are charged in connection with the death of 66-year-old Harold Hagar, whose body was found on Jackson County Road 42 around 12:40 p.m. on Tuesday, August 20.

"Nothing that I can do will bring my dad back. Nothing that I can do will harm these criminals. It will not be justice, but in his honor I can help the nation to realize enough is enough," Lynnette Pate said.

Pate is a national speaker on fitness and wellness and organic living, according to her website, fuelforthebody.org.  She says she was in the process of adding discussions about the Second Amendment to her platform.

"We're actually doing a tour. We've been doing tours across the nation to speak out for our food and health freedoms and the next tour was actually set to be in October. My dad was going to be one of the drivers for it. We were going from Wyoming to Michigan. We were actually working with the Ladies of the Second Amendment."

"My dad never left home without his gun and in his non-sick days he would have his gun where it needed to be protect him," she said. "We need the right to keep and bear arms because maybe other people can be saved."

Harold Hagar's memorial service will be 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 27, at Dillinger Funeral Home Chapel in Newport.

"We're actually going to start a fund for freedom on behalf of my dad because instead of anybody sending flowers, we can have a thing set up a fund for freedom in honor of Harold Hagar."
