    I have OC'ed in the past but not since this new chief took over. Not that I am scared I just haven't had a reason to go to GB. Maybe a walk through the NEW Zoo would be nice.

    I live in GB, and the only OC I've done in the city is in my yard. Never had an issue.

    I've personally written the Chief on the issue, and have never gotten a response.

    However, if you do a google maps search for schools in Green Bay, it'd be next to impossible to go from point A to point B while armed without violating the 1000ft school law.

    I don't think the Chief looks kindly on OC, but most GBPD officers are fine LEO's and I don't expect you'd run across a whole lotta pricks.

    But, then again, we won't know till we try.

    I'd like to try. In a group setting if possible.

    Thats why transporting in your vehicle to a store and open carrying on private property is, in my opinion, one of the safest fool-proof places to exercise your rights and proliferate 'normalization' of the general public to open carrying.

    Don't you also live next to a sheriff's deputy?

    I contacted GBPD last weekend about this. Specifically, I was looking at carrying at Wally World on the east side. There is a building within 1000ft owned & used by GBPS (its their food service building). I was interested to know if that counted as a "school" since I believe anything owned and/ore operated by a school is labeled as a school. The shift LT (forgot his name) did not know and suggested I not do it. His reasoning for that I'd be 'taken down' at gun point. Just one more reason I am opposed to OC (the practice, not the right).

    It does not sound to me like you are very opposed to OC, it sounds like you are scared to OC. With a cop telling you that he wants to take you down at gunpoint, I can see why. Iwould not let this cop stop me though. He is just doing his best to get you to not do it. I carry a few copy's of State Laws in my back pocket. If ever stopped, I will do my best to make sure that the cops understand that I have some idea ofour gun laws, and that fear will never come into play with me. In my mind, any cop that gives me a real hard time, is just a bad cop. By now, every cop in our state (that can read) knows all about 66.0409. Think about it, for most cops seeing 66.0409 exercised (by the people), is the biggest thing to happen in Wisconsin in a long time. A real long time...

    In case you were looking for confirmation, this information is correct.

    The police officer you spoke to was just trying to deter you from carrying. You are legal to do so and they know it.

    The first time you OC will probably feel a little weird, people in WI have been brainwashed into thinking it's bad. However, the only way to change people perception of us to get out there and carry. Be polite to people and smile, the way you act will largely effect the way they respond/think of us.

    Carry on!
