    Is there anyone willing to host or planning a new picnic for open carry?

    I would like to get one started for this summer maybe even more than one.

    So are there any ideas for summer picnics?

    Thank you for the welcome, so are there any current picnic or outing plans other than the trash collection?

    Welcome! There are no picnics planned at this time that I am aware of. I'm pretty sure you'd see a thread about it if there was one in planning stages. Out of curiosity, how old are you? I only ask that because there are some misconceptions when it comes to owning and carrying a firearm.

    I am currently a minor in high school, I am not giving out my age because we are on an open forum, no offense meant by that.

    I also know that it is illegal for me to own or carry ( unless escorted by a legal guardian who is within sight range while hunting large game) any type of hand gun in the state of Wisconsin because I am under the age of 18.

    but since I am a hunters education graduate, I may legally own a and purchase a hunting and/or plinking rifle if accompanied by a legal parent/guardian.

    If there is any information or knowledge other than that you may have that I have stated here I would be glad to hear it.

    Thank You

    I commend you on acting on your beliefs , but isn't the legal age to purchase and own a handgun , 21 years of age?

    That is where Wisconsin laws are a little bit screwy,

    At age

    15 you are able to:
    purchase a rifle if escorted by a legal guardian

    16:you are able to
    purchase a rifle if escorted by a legal guardian
    Hunt and travel to firearms ranges and clubs alone if a Wisconsin Hunter Saftey
    course is correctly and fully completed by the the owner of the rifle

    18 you are able to:
    Purchase a rifle alone
    Own a hand gun
    Travel to ranges and use as side arm while hunting
    just open carrying
    Purchase ammunition for almost any weapon

    21 you are able to:
    Purchase a rifle or pistol
    own a rifle or pistol
    purchase any ammunition available to the public
    open carry
    travel to ranges
    and anything else that is legal



    That is all that I can currently think of at the moment if there is anything else you are wondering I am a wiz with computers and finding out lots of information.

    Thank You

    I think I'm going have to disagree with this one. Pretty sure you can't own a handgun until 21 yrs of age. You might be able to posess one with a legal guardian but that'a all.

    Just move to Alaska or Montana and carry at age 14! Just kidding, I think that's a bit insane. 18 is fine and that's what it should be for everything. If you can serve in the military and deploy overseas, you should be able to drink and buy a hand gun.

    Anyways, nice to see supporters of all ages, even ones who can't carry yet.

    Well you can open carry a handgun at 18, and pretty sure you can even just own one, long as somebody else buys it for you. But maybe not, I don't read every law there is, just the ones I need to know

    GREAT NEWS I GOT THE REALS SCOOP ON LEGAL ISSUE OF OWNING A HAND GUN,

    "at age 18 a person can legally own a any type of firearm, but an 18 year old can not purchase any type of firearm"

    That is what the police officer at my school told me today so that is settled for Wisconsin laws at least.

    Yea that's pretty much it. At 18 you can own, carry, transport, and fire a handgun. But at 18 you can buy any type or rifle be it a .308 bolt action or an ar-15.

    I think its time to step up the game a bit here. Picnics are ok as a get together but isnt going to show the public enough. 15 second blurbs on the news isnt going to get the word out the way we need it.

    We need to plan something on a larger scale. A march, or rally that will get some major attention. I was 100 percent for the Madison march, and was very disappointed that it never got off the ground. We need the public to see it as a normal and accepted occurrence rather that a oddity. If I'm wrong let me know, but I think its time to do something more.
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?

    Nothing will send a better message than open carrying on a regular basis going about your regular activities.

    First, as I always say, ultimately, people should do what they feel is best when it comes to these endeavors.

    But it seems to me marches are for protesting. What are we protesting? I don't think we need to isolate ourselves like that.

    The roadblocks to our freedom right now are the school zone and vehicle carry.

    You guys make some great points and nothing would show people how carrying and helping others can go hand in hand, that is why I am seriously proposing doing a community service project or a fund raiser for a good organization.

    We can not go marching through the streets, because if there is one thing I have learned from my history and current events classes there is nothing upsets and draws negative attention to a topic more than protesting and marching in a large based protests.

    To show that we are not the "horrible macho men trying to compensate for something" we need to do a public display that majorly helps others,

    we could build with habitat for humanity or
    do a food collection that would be donated to open pantry or
    what ever else can be done in the public eye

    we need to show that we are there and not to fear us just because we may carry a gun

    So keep coming with more idea's who knows we may just be able to start something major here

    The BEST thing we can do is work to change the laws (school zone and car carry) and be responsible, polite, citizens when we OC. Anything else is overkill at this point.
