    I need your help! We need candidate areas for cleanup. My initial thoughts:

    1. 30-40mph speed limit, high trafficroads (no one'll notice a gun at 70mph).

    2. Relatively poor area (ghetto)? Be nice to elicit a "ya, I'd carry a gun there too!" from people watching the news.

    3. Obviously, school zone free.

    Current candidates:

    -A stretch of capitol

    -A stretch of fond du lac near 30th

    -prospect downtown

    -holton between keefe andcapitol

    If you look at the map the rail road tracks by the Holton and Keefee that you where thinking about is now a bike path. I use to work in that area there is litter everywhere. I would be willing to come down and help out but I work Thur-Sun so if it is going to be done on the weekend I would not be able to make it.

    Count me in, maybe even the wife if I'm extra persuasive. I'm new to the "scene", but am ready to support the cause.

    I'm pretty sure I can make it. Do we have an area locked in yet?
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?

    Hey guys, this event sounds great. I have been wanting to get involved with an open carry event.

    Would you guys be interested in having a high school student join in to help you?

    I would just be carrying a holster to show my support, because of the current laws of not legally carrying until a person is 18 years of age. In the state of Wisconsin.

    Thanks for your continued support of open carry in Wisconsin

    How about 92st and silver spring rd.There's been like 4 murders and all kinds of robberies in this area.
    We could walk silver spring to 124st.Do this on a sunday.I work 6 days a week.
    Here is a pic of my co-workers car that was parked on 93st and silver spring rd.
    Is this ghetto enough?

    Becausegetting a tight group isvery hard to do when holding your stolengun sideways, and trying to keep your pants from falling down at the same time.

    That is why I would recommend this product to be carriedin the northside convenience stores, maybe they could place them right next to the rolling papersbut not too far away from the 40oz malt-liquor cooler
