    Several people from these forums have expressed interest in forming a gun rights organization in Alabama.

    While Alabama isn't an extremely anti-gun state, and several pro-gun pieces of legislation have recently been passed, we think more can be done. A local organization could substantially help more pro-gun laws to be passed, and perhaps remove some of the restrictive laws currently in place.

    We are currently planning to meet at:

    Buffalo Wild Wings
    2772 John Hawkins Pkway
    Birmingham

    Google maps link

    On Saturday, September 22, @ 1100

    The purpose of this meeting is simply to ascertain how many people are interested, and to come up with a basic structure and goals for an organization.

    We are definitely interested in clarifying the legality of unconcealed carry of weapons in this state, but we would like to pursue other issues as well such as vehicle carry and 'shall issue' laws.

    If you are interested in coming, please reply in this thread. If you are unsure if you will be able to make it, but would like to come, go ahead and post that you are tentatively coming. I'll try to check on this thread daily and compile a list of people planning to come.

    I'm going to post a similar thread on thehighroad.org, but feel free to post notices on other pro-rkba forums as well. Please reply to this thread with a link to the thread you started on another forum so I can keep track of everything.

    Well, I picked the location, so the least I could do is show up, right? Consider me there.

    For those who aren't totally clear on where "there" is, here are some photos I snapped the other day. These are only useful if you're coming from the North, however (I didn't realize that you couldn't take Exit 13 if you're going North). I hope these are helpful.

    This is the sign you'll see as you approach the shopping center, and Paradise Pkwy. You could turn here, but the next road is more direct.

    This is the Logan's you'll see at the second road leading into the shopping center, which is where you'll want to turn. You'll proceed to the row of buildings in back and turn right.

    And this is the restaurant itself. Note: the white truck is not part of the store.

    I may be out that way again later on, in which case I'll update this post with pictures from the other direction.

    Doesn't seem to be too many people interested. We should prob still meet though, even if just two or three people come...

    Alright... I hate bumping threads, but it's the only way I can communicate with you people. I really can't waste a whole day and spend the money and time driving out to B'ham (quite a ways for me) just to meet one person, especially if I can't even get a confirmation they will be there....

    I'm gonna have to say, with just one other person willing to come, I don't think much of anything productive can be done. It's probably better to just hold a meeting online through IRC or something. That way the people that can't spare time can participate.

    Opinions, suggestions, etc? This is kind of frustrating

    Right now I don't think I'm gonna drive up there tomorrow. Sorry if anybody goes and such, but you should've checked the thread before leaving anyhow

    Well, I hate to postpone, but it doesn't make a lot of sense to meet with one confirmed and two tentatives. It looks like we'll have to get people involved at a more basic level (IRC, etc, as you suggested) before we organize an actual meeting. Baby steps.

    Yeah I was surprised at the lack of response. Oh well, it's still possible. I think there were a few people that would have come if they didn't have other responsibilities as well, so it's not like nobody was interested.

    IRC might be a better way to start. I'm too tired atm to think of a plan, but I'll be around in a day or so :P

    If another meet up is planned i'll try to be there.

    Right. We could just make a channel temporarily for the discussion.

    Also, xchat is far superior to mIRC, and it's free.... http://www.silverex.org/download/

    I'm too busy atm to even think about much really, I'll bbl soon.

    There is an association already perhaps join this group and make it more visible and more effective.... Maybe someone could volunteer to build a website for them :-)

    Well, for now I think we ought to try having a meeting with IRC. How about Mon, Oct. 15 @ 1900?

    It shouldn't take too long, I'd just like to see how many are interested and what options are available atm.

    The server address is:
    irc.afternet.org

    channel:
    #ALRKBA

    If anybody needs help using IRC go ahead a post here. I can write up a more detailed explanation on how it works...
