    Open Carry planned in Madison on July 4th?

    Since Kokesh cancelled the July 4th Washington DC Open Carry March and instead is encouraging that people march on their State Capitols, is there any group planning a Wisconsin OC March for Independence Day?

    The Capitol Building is open from 8am to 6pm during the week, so Thursday July 4th shouldn't be any different. I would anticipate our rally would be outdoors, probably on the capitol square.

    Here is the Wisconsin State Facilities access policy. http://www.doa.state.wi.us/docview.asp?docid=9038

    Take a good look at Section I, subsection F, & G.

    Also Section II.

    The permit summary: http://www.doa.state.wi.us/docview.asp?docid=9039 indicates that a permit would probably be required if we "reasonably expect more than 100 people to attend". I think it will be difficult to qualify as a spontaneous event. (less than 3 days of planning and notifications made)

    I'll attend if I don't have to work that day, so far thats two people, don't look like you'll need a permit at this point. LOL

    We could keep changing hats, so we would look like a lot of different people!

    I would suggest pistols. Those with coverup/concealment capability and an accepted CCW permit/license can go in the building.

    Bring the AR, if there is a rally I will bring my AK as well as my Glock. Not everyone has handguns we cant limit who brings what.

    How did the madison OC go
    Off topic: I missed the June deadline in sending for the Utah permit. Can I still send it a few days past or are they going to refuse it?
