    A good Gause Blvd location would be to meet at the large parking lot at Hobby Lobby, about 3 blocks off of i-10 (good for out-of-towners). We could work our way down Gause to Lakewood drive, back up the other side of Gause to I-10, then back to the parking lot. There is lots of traffic, lots of private businesses, resturants and eateries along here also.It will take placeon November 21st at 9:00am. We need at least 10 members to join this event.

    Check for the Gun Free School zones. I'm notfamiliar with the area, so you local guys need to step up and check this out.

    The school zones were checked, thats kinda why this location was decided on.

    I'm super excited about this event, been thinking about something like this for a while. Next Saturday will be my first day of vacation, I've cleared it with the wife, and I will be there.

    I will be bringing a box of latex gloves for the dirty work. Someone needs to bring a box of trashbags.


    We also need to think about where we will dispose of the trash, will someone bring it back home, or can we dispose it in a nearby dumpster?

    Anyone thought to post this event in the Mississippi forum? Might get someone from the coast or I-59 to come down. I will check on that and handle it if I don't see any posting.


    edit: spelling

    It was funny the first time. Now?... :quirky

    Hey guys. Good luck with the pick-up. I hope you have a good turn out. Somebody take photos and video to document it and let us know where we can see it (youtube?). Be careful.

    Thanks, but no thanks.
    You can meet me just about any time, PM me.
    Not sure just what "cause" you're referring to.
    LOL, I'd work circles around any of you guys, even half my age.
    Not all that interested in having any "chance" encounters, that's not what I'm about.
    LOL riiiight.....

    Ocer's, there is a 70% chance of rain for Sat... bring your rain gear if your going.

    I'm still not sure if i can make it due to a prior commitment, but if I can get away, I will.

    If there is rain, please make sure your rain gear doesn't conceal your firearm. I would hate to read that this event turned into negative publicity for OC'ers.

    Contrary to what Mark would have you believe, there are a lot of cops out there like me that support what most here are doing. However, like Mark, I don't really see what picking up trash is going to accomplish. I do think if an OC'er was to organize a Christmas Toy Drive or something similar it would get a lot more attention and respect for OC'ers.

    I guess that explains why a lot of cops FAIL to reign in their criminal, rogue counterparts, correct?
    Attention? That's not necessarily what's needed. Respect? Yes, but there's a huge leap between "respect" and "respecting someone's rights."
    All the goodwill efforts in the world aren't going to sway the Great, Ignorant Masses into allowing you to exercise your right to bear arms.
    There will ALWAYS be that great, emotional resistance to a truly armed society.
    History, the Great Teacher, clearly indicates it.
    Maybe the public will think that the prisoners/trustees are on break and their armed guards are just helping out with the trash; don't forget the orange trash bags

    Wish I could join you guys, but it's gonna be a busy day for me at home.


    Is there an issue with people doing voluntary community-service type projects? Habitat for Humanity, food drives, trash cleanup, etc.? I'd like to see your argument why it's so bad.

    How about you quit trolling and make some useful posts? We already have one loudmouth troll here, we don't need you parroting everything he says.

    Thanks for making my point for me about this site and the people that frequent it. Hey OCers, this is who you want to keep company with? Join us at http://www.laopencarry.org and let's get down to business taking on some real OC initiatives.

    You must be pretty damn bored to be trolling this one so hard with your butt buddy, eh?

    I'm in Louisiana almost every weekend, so I like to stay active on this board. And OC in MS is so snagged in legal crap that it's a joke, hence the MS board is rather slow.

    Yeah, it's raining. Come out anyway and get to meet some of your fellow OCer's. We can do a breakfast and talk about all things OC.

    Another one who can't do anything positive for the open carry movement.

    Crawl back in your hole troll. You weren't missed.
