Bump. Would like to see some new members!
Would just like to extend a welcome to new madison members who may have heard the radio ads and dropped in for the first time. Please do post up a reply here in this thread andintroduce yourself, let us know which station you heard about Opencarry.org on, and any other applicable details about your open carry experiences.
There are a number of recent Madison area signatures on the petition. Maybe they are just lurking. There isgoing to a lot of interest in open/concealed carry inMadisonas gang violence spreads. Gang shootings are an everyday occurance on the city's southwest side. The city has been unsuccessful in a two year effort to calm"retake" the area. Property values there are sinking and it appears that the mayor and the elitist city council havewritten that part of the city off.
When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
Why do police carry guns?

I'm not a new member since the radio ads went out, but I've been silently lurking for a month or so. I am very pleased by the recent momentum of pro-gun rights in Wisconsin. And thanks to you all, I have decided to OC myself and help spread the word. I have OC'd at the local Walmart and some gas stations without incident. I have drafted some letters to some local municipalities to make them aware of their unenforceable preempted firearm ordinances. I also try to casually discuss the topic of OC/CC with friends and acquaintances to help educate and enlighten the population. I am always amazed at how few people actually know what their rights are! Also, thanks to this forum, and the information within. It is a great resource!
Hey MJA, thanks for posting up. Its nice to hear about other OC'ers.
I'm still looking forward to the first time I run into a fellow freedom exerciser when i'm out and about!
Occasionally when I have a really receptive retail clerk or something who initiates a comment about the gun (which has only happened twice)Iask them if they've had any other customers OC'ing. Not had a "yes" yet. Hopefully soon! I know multiple people here in SE wisconsin OC in the same stores.
