    A transcript of the telephone call would be nice to have before the meeting and to learn from it too. Give us a better idea of what to expect and have an answer prepared in a statement to "answer the questions before they get asked"

    Nothing like answering all the questions before the interview starts also dispel all the stereotypes before they get started.

    Do post time and place at Boiseshooters or any other pro-second amendment site. Get them involved in the larger organization we're trying to form. I am not a member at these forums so someone please include them.

    Ok does Veritas Coffeeshop work for everyone?

    The owners are friends of mine and pro-gun so we won't have any problems being kicked out.

    For those of you who don't know where it is, Veritas is located on Chinden close to the Woman of Steel Gallery (if you are traveling down Chinden towards the connector, it will be on your left hand side just after Woman of steel)

    If no one has any objections to that then final details will be below.

    When: Saturday, July 26th at 11 AM
    Where: Veritas Coffee House
    What: A meeting of anyone who wants to be involved with the Idaho OCDO chapter and the Idaho Citizens Defense Leauge
    Why: To discuss logistics, events, member platform, etc.

    Sounds like a plan. See you all there.

    Close to where we're supposed to clean up for the event? Maybe that would be a good meeting place for that day as well, somewhere to park the cars.

    Most of them are not OC'ers... not that I care one way or another about inviting them, but it's not our group per se... in other words, don't hi-jack their forum.

    Agreed. But many of us who are on OCDO are also members of Boiseshooters. We can at least put it up there so that if some of them want to come the invite is extended. But I agree we should not hijack their forum

    As a member of that other board I can tell you that OC is not a view supported by the majority of people who CC.

    This would be better handle by you all.

    I would also like to attend; I'm comming from Mountain Home and have to be back in Mountain Home before 5pm. I would like to get more involved since I seem to be the only person in Elmore County OCing. I'm sorry I didn't get to talk to you guys more at the zoo but they sold me tickets and I went in with my children. I think I caused a stire because I watched a few staff members run around and past me (probably looking for me) knowing someone with a pistol went in even though they held most of you outside. My Springfield XD40 was not to visable I guess becasue they walked by me a couple of times.

    Who cares if they are OC or not? I thought the previous states that started this kind of a site were watching over firearm rights as a whole, watching bills go through legislation, giving our local people a voice. OC would be secondary to this. We would be the Idaho Citizens Defense League that happens to have some members that are active in the OC movement. Sure, it can sponsor events for our local OC stuff, but it gives us as gunowners one voice, to protect all forms of legal gun use.

    Just my 2 cents...

    From the Virginia Citizen's Defense League...

    The Virginia Citizen's Defense League (VCDL) was founded in October 1994 as the Northern Virginia Citizens Defense League (NVCDL). The group experienced enormous growth in membership statewide and was incorporated as VCDL in May of 1998. VCDL is a non-partisan, grassroots organization dedicated to defending the human rights of all Virginians and, most importantly, the proposition that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is a fundamental Human Right.

    Maybe you guys are missing the point of this.... first of all, part of the why comes from this.

    "and get your selves a little web site going ASAP with contact info on it - I cannot keep up with akl the states" - Mike in a PM

    So, we need some kind of official contact. Remember, opencarry.org is not a group or a club, it is simply a meeting place for a much larger movement. As states have gotten active they have been able to take more responsibility for themselves and form their own groups. Mike and John can't speak about us, doesn't know our issues, or our laws and politics out here. That is for us to do.

    Many other states have started their own Citizens Defense League. I have spoken with several of the long active members of the Idaho forum about starting this same kind of group. The idea isn't to promote the open carry movement specifically, but to support all right, specifically gun rights. Yes, it will advocate for OC but also for other things. It will no longer just be "us". Sure, we can still meet here and talk. There won't be a forum at this site. Sure, boiseshooters can still meet there. But any event we do can be sponsored by this larger local group. It would give us an official voice (remember, we can't speak for opencarry.org) for all gun issues. We would be the Idaho Citizens Defense League that happens to have some members who are part of the OC movement. We would have an offical OC spokesperson with contact info. With more people, we have a larger voice.

    A lot of details to hash out, but that is what we will be discussing this Saturday. Come with an open mind.

    Saint, care to make some comments on this one?

    Completely agree. I believe we need to set up our own website and get this off the ground. This movement is now far beyond the simple boundaries of OCDO and is moving to a point where we can potentially have great effect on the upcoming elections and legislation as relates to gun rights in Idaho. All we need to do is establish ourselves as a force to be reckoned with and put forth a legitimate front.

    I would encourage anyone that can to try and make it to the meeting on Saturday. It will be a good chance to talk things out, discuss where we want to go, and determine a mode of operation.

    Check out http://www.vcdl.org/

    Virginia, West Virgina, Texas, Arizona, and several other states have there own CDL.

    You can contact legislators, see current issues in their area, get information on local gun laws, etc. They send out email news letters once a month, emergency event emails, etc. It would be a lot of work to get where they are, but it would be worth it. They even have their own license plate! Just shows you what normal folks can do.
