Well, an OC rally has been scheduled for June 22 in Erie. However, there are currently some issues.
Gregory Karle, the City Solicitor, has made it clear that they will be enforcing their preemption violation. With the threat of a fine up to $1,000 and up to 90 days in jail.
Now, Justin, who is organizing the rally, is working with an attorney. And regardless, I am going. If everyone could show some support, the link the to facebook posting is here: https://www.facebook.com/OpenCarryPennsylvania
The PAFOA.org site is of questionable value and I say this as experience has repeatedly shown me that there appears to be a real screwy character behind it.
As for Erie and it's believed to be anti-OC policy, as I understand it, the "Pre-Emption" status they're claiming by way of Mr. Karle only applies to Philadelphia County. If I'm right here, have no qualms about initiating your own pre-emptive strike (no pun intended) and file an action against Erie, it's mayor and mr. Karle, in the case of the last two, file the action against the two of them in their individual recognasence. What I'm suggesting is, by way of the courts, attempt to financially break these people, their superiors, aides, assistants, and others currently in government who back such anti-OC policies.
With the above in mind, understand as well, at the federal level, along with Massachusetts, from the views of law and law enforcement, Pennsylvania is the laughing stock of the nation.
You do not need the services of an attorney to take these people on. You've got a computer - you clearly have some idea of how to use it - now just do it. It's easier than you think and not very expense - but it does take time. When practicing law as a pro se it may take you a while to learn to get all your ducks in line but once you learn how to do it, it's priceless entertainment when you see the results of your new found skills. You're quite capable of scaring the hell out of people like Mr. Karlie, only right now you don't know it and the beauty about it is, neither does he but it's up to you.
Regarding "Facebook" you would be well advised to stay away from it and other "social media" of that type and kind. The "tracking" that is going on, in part looking for people like you is almost unbelievable.
Just my opinion for what it's worth.
