    On Saturday March 7th Titletown Brewery Green Bay Jerry Bader (Conservative Talk Show Host WTAQ) has organized a Tea Party Protest. Since this is outside of a Bar/Restaurant it probably would not make a good open carry event, but an Open holster Event may be called for???

    He is encouraging banners and posters, and there is a certainty that there will be media coverage...

    With the owner's permission, you could carry inside a place that serves alcohol.

    Wellll... one always needs permission to be in somebody's establishment. It's just not a "gun crime" to have a long gun in there.

    Better yet how about open carry on the steps of the Capitol?

    The McKenna tea party would more than likely be a better choice to show up in support of open carry for acouple of reasons. The weather should be warmer so holsters will be more visible and because McKenna is a staunch supporter of open carry. You can bet any intrusion by the authorities would get a lot of her attention. Just be sure if you are there that you don't go inside any buildings located on Capitol property, including rest rooms.

    The other issue I had not thought of it is on the steps of the state capitol and if I'm not mistaken we can not carry there, would have to remain of the property.

    As far as Vicki is concerned I will see her at the AFP event this Saturday and ask her if I get the chance

    HO Ho ho. Thanks.

    Makes me think of a local eXtreme boat and its name. It is a 52 foot(!) runabout named 'Chickenhawk'. To me that is a practitioner of nasty pederasty.

    My Beneteau FIRST 235 will go on the market ($15K w/ new semi custom trailer) when I can get it out of the snow. It has become too expensive and my arthritic hands can't pull ropes so well anymore.

    Chickenhawk had a monthly slip and service bill of $8000 last year. Most I imagine was gasoline.

    I'm not aware of anything that prohibits one from having a firearm on state capitol property as long as one remains outside of the building itself. Do you have anything that you can cite to support your belief?

    I probably misspoke on that, Lammie is probably correct that inside the building would be the problem.
    I was just thinking state property would be illegal.

    Whats your usual lake? I am out every weekend on a local lake. Okauchee, Pewaukee,Nagawicka, Big Cedar, Geneva, Delavan, Castle Rock, Mendota, Lake Michigan, and occasionally I party with the FIBS on the chain.

    lets tie up next summer!

    Returning to the topic; a reason that I have lost some interest in boating is because of the additional exposure to various anti-gun agencies that are involved in boating. Primarily the explicitly military branch of the Department of Homeland Severity and the state's anti gun freedom department.

    we are usally out on Winnebago. We launch at the Pioner and head on down to the sandbar just south of there.
    With the load exhaust i tend to stay away from the local lakes with lots of local enforcement on them

    Indeed. My experience with the uscg last year made me want to vomit. Its everything that is wrong with our growing oppressive government.

    I was out on Lake Michigan/Milwaukee Harbor/River on a fine day in July. I enjoyed the unconstitutional search courtesy of the uscg under the guise of a "random safety check"

    During the 30 minute "detainment" I produced all requisite flares/fire extinguishers/PFD's including throwable,audible distress signal, oil discharg placard, flame arrestor. Oh but wait. One of my brothers kids who was wearing a life jacketturns out the life jacket wasn't "coast guard approved" Thats okI further enjoyed the the "notice of violation" they gave me whichboasted of potentital fines in excess of $1000 (or maybe it was $2000) All because the manufacturer of that life jacket probably didn't want to pay the kings ransom to get it stamped "coast guard approved"

    I was then escorted off the water by the 40 foot clipper with roughly a dozen or so government employeeswho "for the safety of the boy who had a non-coast-guard-approved life jacket on" had to hover there until we had the boat out of the water at the launch. Great job boys!!!

    I further enjoyed thatI had to deal with someone at the DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY in WASHINGTON, DC in order to dispose of the "violation". Felt like Amerika to me!
