Operation CarryLand Radio Spots Come to Green Bay[/b]
Open Carry Picnic Planned for Ted Fritsch Park(Saturday, August 8, at High Noon)[/b]
Thanks to our members’ contributions at http://www.opencarry.org/carryland.html, OpenCarry.org is pleased to be running radio spots on 3 of the finest radio stations in the Green Bay – Appleton – Osh Kosh metro area this week starting Tuesday, August 4th.
The 10 second ads will run simultaneously on WIXX-FM (pop), WNCY-FM (Country), and WTAQ-AM (News Talk) – listen to the spot at http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/attachment.php?id=6764.
The objective is raise awareness of open carry rights in Wisconsin and drive listeners to OpenCarry.org’s landing page where they can “take action” by signing the online petition at http://www.petitiononline.com/wi1848oc/petition.html to repeal the Wisconsin laws banning open carry in vehicles and school zones, and by contacting their legislators.
And at high noon on Saturday, August 8th, open carriers will be meeting up in Ted Fritsch Parkfor a little get together over burgers and other barbeque treats. Says picnic organizer, Fernando Silva Jr., a frequent open carrier in Green Bay:
“The picnic should be a good time - right now I expect just me, a couple of guys, and probably my nieces, but who knows, some more folks just might show up. I’ve never had a problem open carrying, including one time bumping into some police officers.”
