    Well, good weather is coming soon, along with public events that we can OC at.

    What do you think of a meeting sometimein the next month or soto discuss the training bulletin and the the meeting Fetch and Surf had with the city attorney and SPD training officer.

    Surf, when will you be in town for a weekend? I will have every other weekend off starting with this weekend.

    A May meeting/lunch is a good idea. Don't know about the weather in May but lets plan on the meeting/lunch in a park. Maybe Riverfront Park.

    I am definately up for a Riverfront Park meeting, preferably somewhere close to the carousel.

    I will be off the weekend of the 9th and the 23rd if we want to plan around those dates.

    A get together sounds cool, I saw an interesting sign yesterdy I thought I would share it with you. This sign is about four to five blocks from LC downtown. I think it might be to scare the kids but what if a person were to be lawfully carrying near this sign? Anyway, have any of you seen these types of signs anywhere else?

    4 or 5 blocks away, wow. Does this mean I can put up signs where ever I want as long as I "sponsor" the sign?

    How about victim rich zone signs sponsored by the lack of your 2nd Amendment?

    I didn't think school zones extended that far out, but what do I know.....

    Not to mention that lack of which laws you are actually breaking if any, which we all know is none.

    Federal school Gun Free Zones extend 1000 feet from the school's property... usually that's not much more than a city block (think about 300 meters for you rifle shooters). Federal law also provides that if you are licensed by your state of residence to carry a firearm, you are exempt from the GFZ and are still subject to state law (which we've hashed and rehashed here many times on this forum).

    I am not a lawyer but I would interpret section b to say that if you have a cpl then you are exempt from said law. More to the point, how is a firearms law listed under a commerce bill? Explain that one if you can.

    They claim that the firearm, or at least part of it, inevitably crossed state lines, thus is "interstate commerce" and they have the right to regulate "for the safety of the nation's interstate commerce network." (not actual quotes... just saying that's not my words, but the idea behind the law)

    As it states, it is up to the prosecutor (after your illegal arrest and possible jailing) to prove that the firearm at any point crossed state lines. Though, if the maker of the firearm isn't in your state, that's pretty easy to prove.

    The "interstate commerce clause" as it's been come to be known as, has been a hotbed of controversy and unconstitutionality arguments for quite some time.

    Fetch or Surf do you know if we need to talk to the city to have this obvious conflict taken down? or do we contact LC PTG and advise them they are violating the law by misinformation?

    If I am not mistaken, the building that the sign is near was the temporary home to LC school (therefore school property) while LC itself was under renovation. Need to know if the school district still occupies the building that it is near. If not then it can be removed.

    I would love to join you guys and meet some local OCrs. There is a great hotdog joint, Cap'n Juicy's, two blocks S of the park with outdoor seating and good public exposure.

    How about May the 25th? Is there anything going on in town that weekend that anyone knows about?

    Somewhere around or in Riverfront park would be good, maybe a nice old fashioned picnic. Are there areas in the park for that?

    25th looks good. There are no major events at the park but it should be nice and busy being a holiday and all. :what:

    I assume this is a "bring the family" type of event? The field just west of the fountain (in front of city hall)usualy has tables and lots of grass to sit on and play in. Should we shoot for 11 am to 1 PM so people can come and go as they please?

    I forgot about it being a holiday weekend.

    It probably wouldn't be a good time, a lot of people like to spend those weekends with family.

    I will go with the concensus on whether or not to try it on a holiday weekend.

    May is a busy month. We could try and have a lunch/meeting on a Saturday. The 9th is a full moon, the 10th (sunday) is Mothers day, the 16th is the Torchlight parade (Armed Forces Day) downtown, the 23rd through the 25th is Memorial weekend.
    We could try for the 9th or 16th at Cyrus O' Leary's.
    Any other ideas?
