    So what's the forecast on this one?

    We are trying to get this done on a previous thread.

    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum41/9508.html

    We are looking towards Late May. Either a IHOP, BBQ place, or something similar will suffice.

    The main thing is finding enough people that can commit to being there and are in the local area.

    Any help you can offer is appreciated.

    I think we should stick to the late May date and then just do this again when you get back from Iraq.

    Well, I won't be able to make the late May one, however, if we can make the one in June on a weekend, I can make that one.

    I'm by no means in leadership of anything here but I dislike seeing too much indecision or politeness getting in the way of action. :P

    If it were me, I'd like to see at least two gatherings per month. One mid-week dinner. And the other would be on a weekend, maybe an early breakfast to avoid conflicting with mid-day and evening activities.

    Really we need something like VCDL for NC. GRNC is probably the closest thing we have but other than sending them $$ every year, I'm not aware of any regular meetings or community surrounding the organizations. What we really need I think is a state-wide Open Carry club with local chapters meeting regularly. Imagine a bunch of guys getting together on saturday mornings for breakfast, or wednesday nights for dinner in public places, all openly carrying, and none of them are mowing down the poor children.

    Ideally I'd love to see something like this be more than just social. I'd love to see this group organize to send letters to legislators, or heck even pay them a visit. Organize efforts to have laws changed, to have existing laws better understood by cops, to condition the public to seeing that a holstered pistol is not something they need to fear, etc.

    But baby steps, man. Baby steps.

    you're right on the money there yonder, i'd love to see an organized "front" to educate folks in good ole' nc about responsible handgun ownership and what open carry is about. perhaps a north carolina open carry association would be in order....hell we could even have t-shirts printed up to look "official"
