I do think that I should mention2 things:I've discussed this before, but it is time to push it hard. I need everyone to post it on the forums they visit about guns. Let's get this thing noticed and get it moving. Anyone that wants to come can be there.
Some have said they want to long gun carry. Not a good idea. Let's keep it simple and let's not take any chances of anything going wrong. If you long gun carry it means you will have to handle them a lot and that means ahigher chance of a mishap.
We can meet up at the frontsteps starting at 7:00-7:30 AM. Have your signs or tee shirts or whatever. We don't want to block access or harass anyone. However, we do need to get our point across.
Talk to your legislators and find out who will and will not support it and have list on signs. Let's let everyone know who wants law abiding citizens to be defenseless victims.
1) Getting together with candidates BEFORE the election can be very powerful and a way to get access later. Why not crank up the machine NOW?
2) I'm not sure but I seem to remember the first day of the session being pro-forma (nothing much happens). Will anyone be paying attention? Are you sure we'll have the coverage we want? Would later be better?
Whatever is decided, I intend to participate. This session is TOO IMPORTANT to waste. We havevery pro-CHL governor who will sign legislation removing many of the restrictions we now labor under and maybe even OC, if we lay the right groundwork. Let's make hay while we can.
