    Took about a 30 minute stroll to the park with the girlfriend, dog and .357 magnum today. Plenty of people around, no funny looks or problems.

    Did you plan around school zones?

    There is one private and one public school in my area, but my normal route takes me nowhere close to being within a thousand feet of either one. I'd have to walk over a mile and a half from my house to even begin to get into an area where I would have to give any consideration to the school zone law.

    In Madison? I doubt it. Next time let me know where and when. I want to watch you get arrested.

    It's good that it does WIG19, because the last time the mute button did not!

    We tried twice, Mike, but for various reasons they did not happen. Now it's getting close to the end of "picnic season" in WI. But I feel like there's been pretty good progress with OC in the heavily liberal anti-gun town of Madison.

    To my knowledge, not one county has even discussed the resolution in committee much less voted for it. Now before you go off with the "it takes time" crap, consider that there are counties enacting smoking ban and other ordinances. The ordinance comes out of nowhere on a Friday, is approved by committee on Monday, and is in front of the whole board for adoption within a few weeks. THIS IS HAPPENING, but the RTKBA resolutions have gone NOWHERE since August.

    Even Doug, an elected Town official who has MORE pull than the general public, cannot get it up for consideration.

    We may be making MINOR inroads, but we have not achieved the success we had hoped for. We were misled by the disorganization of the Wisconsin Patriots. The resolutions were a great idea that was mishandled, and have now died. The net result is that it has made us supporters look like radicals and it has hurt the cause greatly.

    PEOPLE WANT SMOKING BANS way more than they want OC. It's just that simple. People are PUSHING the government and won't take no for an answer.

    How have we been misled by the Patriots? The organization has done everything they said they would do....collect signatures, send in petitions to the counties, send in petitions and copies to all the legislators, copies to the AG, and copies to all county DA's. Now its in the government's hands. If your tired of waiting then march down to your county buildings and ask to speak with someone on the board. Ask to speak with the chief of police. The resolutions also depend on people taking interest and pushing the government to consider it. The Patriots are only so big.

    Made us look like radicals?? Well if encouraging counties and LEOs to respect the rights of citizens is "radical", then America is DOOMED. The state should already be doing that. Also, is the idea of helping people to be secure in their persons while in public (when police aren't there to save you) such a radical idea?

    Consider these things before attacking this organization. I am fighting for OC. If you want to wait around for the WI political climate to change, you'd better bring some high calorie food.

    Thank you for the observation. Even a County Supervisor does not control the Board's Agenda and especially in the face of opposition from the Chairman. Individually we are only citizens.

    I have a County Supervisor - one - so the County Boards must be flooded with petitions and every one copied to the local newsrag. If you can find brightly colored paper, better. If there were more of us disciplined to post synchronously, better still.

    Our individually coordinated actions cannot be corrupted by agitators working from their own agenda. That is what I believe is the purpose of OCDO.

    My most memorable sight as a gun rights activist was of legislative offices cluttered with orange postcards. IIRC GRSC then numbered ~3000 active. Each got a pre-printed sheet perforated to postcards for each of the subject legislators. Even the janitors should have noticed something.
