O, with a distance of 1.28 miles. Looking for sometime in April. Any Suggestive dates? Who is interested?

    It is a bit far for me, but you know I have to come. It would be nice if we could find a local park (with no ban) to have an after pickup cook out. Gunguy, any ideas?

    Yes, There is Riverside Park. Right on the river (Hence the name).Very nice, clean, well kept. There is a Pavillion with a large shelterandPicnic tables, There are several grilles built on stands right into the ground. Play Area for kids, Bathrooms, water fountain. There is a Barrier closing off the far end of the park to vehicles, but pedestrians are still allowed there. They open it in the spring,But thegate should be open by then though. At the Far end, there are basketball courts, baseball diamond, another pavillion with shelter and tables. Very, very nice... And No schools nearby!

    Riverside Park is in the clear, but I haven't heard of anybody carrying in Janesville.

    Check the first one (Hwy 51 to Kennedy Rd, on hwy 14), I think Washington Elementary School is to close to 51 (811 N. Pine St).

    The map is a little misleading. Washington Elementary is the bubble in the lower left hand corner. The "14" there is "Business 14". It dont meet up with Hwy 14 for about 5 miles north. I havent heard of anyone carrying in Janesville either, but someone needs to start it...

    Sorry for the confusion, Aaron; that map was just meant to show that Riverside Park was in the clear. The proposed cleanup sections are both o.k.; I just haven't got the maps worked up yet.

    Hi gunguy,
    I realize that you originally started this thread, but if I could just make a suggestion.... The "What kind of gun do you carry" question is a whole different topic and deserves it's own thread, rather than taking this one off in a new direction and losing its momentum.

    Yeah, I thought of that, but the reason I put it in here was most the people responding, will be the ones we do the cleanup with. Just getting to know you guys a little bit. But a different thread would be appropriate.

    The Water in the Rock River isnt tooooo bad. Sure as hell wouldn't drink fromit. It is somewhat rural, the furthest end has a block of houses. None at the other end.And No, definately no schools. Not for over a Mile

    Hello, and welcome to the forum.

    Yes, you have a problem. If your house is in a "school zone" (1000 feet) then you can not carry off your property (unless it is in a case, and unloaded). You are still able to carry on your property, but not off.

    Now the "good" news...

    On January 8th 2010 Wisconsin Carry, Inc. filed a lawsuit in Federal Court to challenge the constitutionality of Wisconsin's onerous Gun Free School Zone Act on behalf of our members and the residents of the state of Wisconsin.

    A copy of this lawsuit can be viewed here:

    I would ask that if you can, join Wisconsin Carry. We need your membership, and it sounds like you need us.

    I'm in Delavan. I'm certainly up for this. Do we have a date setup yet or just sometime in the spring?

    As long as I have notice I will be there.

    Hi Neon,
    Welcome to the forum! When I made that map, it was only to show that our cleanup route was nowhere near infringing on a school zone. I just want to make sure that you know that the actual 1000 foot zone is measured from the outer boundries of the school property. I ginned up a map for you to see just how far Washington school extends.



    It's a big chunk of the neighborhood! Just remember that, although I tried to be as accurate as possible, you should not trust this zone without verifying it yourself.
