    WI-Force, Used to be Wisconsin Rifle & Pistol Association.
    Second Amendment Sisters (Wisconsin Chapter)
    Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership

    And we haven't even touched on the 100's of "pro-hunting" groups.

    I just had to Google the last one. OMG. NO GUNS FOR NEGOES. WTF? It's not what I first thought. It is a must see. Very informative.

    WCCA is supposed to have spawned/reorganized under another name (but still with the monkey's jack-leg associated).

    JPFO is not a Wisconsin centric group any more than is the John Birch Society, in Appleton, or NAGR - National Association of Gun Rights, with whom WGO is affiliated.

    icarry.org used to be just for IL, but they have expanded to WI, as well.

    Used to belong to Wisconsin Rifle & Pistol Association and competed in a lot of pistol matches. When I came back from Illinois after nearly 20 years I sent in a request for renewal and they never answered. I guess they don't need or want members anymore.

    You are assuming that nothing ever gets lost in the mail.WI FORCE (formerly the WRPA) is much more active now and the staff is willing to help you out. Your issue is an easy one to sort out if you truly care.

    They are? They are willing to "help you out?" Have they made a donation to the legal fund to challenge the GFSZA? Did they offer any help to any member here? Have they been asking there membership to get to these council meetings to speak against these illegal local ordinances?

    From where I sit, I haven't seen them do anything to advance our cause (Open Carry).

    If I am wrong, and you have proof, please feel free to provide it.

    What have you done to support the rifle ranges and shooting sports in WI?

    Don't look for a handout and talk trash in the same breath....:?

    That's exactly what I thought you'd say.

    They are all about the ranges and shooting sports, not about ones right to self defense or "open carry."

    Thanks for reiterating my point.

    Another arrant interrupter errantly conflating commerce and hunting with the Second Amendment that "shall not be infringed", even to Wisconsin having separate sections of its Constitution for the RKABA and another for shooting regulated by the DNR..

    First you interject in the middle of a conversation which does not directly concern you, then you bash a group because of an ignorant perception. Divisiveness will accomplish nothing. Many members of WI FORCE are active in the OC movement. You know nothing of what they are "all about"....

    I am a member of and contributor to Wisconsin Libertarians, National Libertarians, WGO, JPFO, GOA, NRA, RKBA, SAF, American Legion and VFW. I think I am serious. This is the first I heard of the name change and considering how many organizations I belong to and my shooting background it would seem to me they would have approached me by now. I regularly check the American Riflemen for shooting events in my area that I could go to because I can't travel like I used to but Wisconsin seems to be pretty dead for events except for an occasional gun show. If you have a link for them I will contact them again.

    All you have to do is fill out an application and mail it in with your check to become a member. http://www.wrpa.com/10_MemberApp.pdf

    If you wish to talk to someone personally,send Jeff Ness an E-Mail or even give him a phone call. http://www.wrpa.com/Contacts_Officers.htm


    I sense a little feeling of entitlement on your part. Who would you be to them? Why would they "approach" you? How would "they" even know who you are? "They" are a group of individuals, just like any organization. Myself being on of "them". If you have a strong shooting background, it would seem that you would have a strong desire to belong to your State rifle club. That is what WI FORCE is. Our WI State Rifle club. In the world of High Power and State level coordination, they are significant.

    I have personally sparked OC as an issue of awarement. I proposed and got implemented an Open Carry policy at my local range. At the meeting which I proposed the rule change, the President of Wi Force was in attendance. He took notice and announcedthe issue of OC in the Fall newsletter to the State Rifle Clubs using some of the meat of my proposal.

    The American Rifleman is not a very good source for shooting events information. If you go to the WI Force site http://www.wrpa.com/ and the Wisconsin Shooters site, http://wisconsinshooters.com/joomla/ you will find an event pretty much every weekend in WI.

    If you have a solid shooting background, you should become involved in Appleseed. The mission of Appleseed is to get new shooters involved in shooting and revive the basic marksmanship skills that every American should have.

    What I wish is for you to cease trolling the threads adding to the spirit of divisiveness.

    "Sport" shooting and the many organizations are how most people get involved in shooting. We need to unite and fight for our rights together in spite of our differing motivators.

    You are 100% correct here, we need to unite. The problem is, these "Sport" shooting organizations seem to have a "you don't need to carry" or "we aren't about OC" attitude towards those who OC.

    Example: Gene German introduces the county resolutions. Where are/were the "Sport" organizations.....silent.

    Example: Gonzalez is unlawfully detained not once, but twice. Where are/were the "Sport" organizations......silent.

    Example: Krause is unlawfully detained and charged. Where are/were the "Sport" organizations.....silent.

    Example: Yates is unlawfully detained (Walking on State Street in Madison). Where are/were the "Sport" organizations.....silent.

    Example: (Bernson and Hannan-Rock) are taken from their home. In Bernson's case, the government still has his gun. Where are/were the "Sport" organizations.....silent.

    I've given five (5) examples of where the "Sport" organizations stood silent while our fellow citizens were/are being arrested and having there firearms seized by government.

    I'm not being divisive, just stating the facts. When these "pro-gun, Sport" organizations actually start standing up with/for the little guy, then we will be united. Until then, it is the "Sport" organizations, who continue to remain silent, that are being divisive.

    The benighted interrupter is a union ('Goonion') organizer advocating soviet style collective action under leftist leadership.

    I support individual action based on knowledge of our neighbors and the issues,
    and distrust of agitators and propagandists.

    Believe nothing you read or hear without verifying it yourself unless it fits your preexisting world view.

    Not so. What is divisive is making unfair demands and then bashing when they do not meet your demands. Often times these demands are only made on forums and never in writing directly to the organizations.

    These sport organizations are not about the icebergs. Most do not have a political action committee. The member dues are spent to maintain the ranges and operate. It is up to the individuals who find themselves involved in a legal battle who need to appeal to the organizations for support and not automatically feel entitled to the members' dues from these organizations.

    An appeal in writing often times must be voted on by the board of directors before any money (members' dues) can be disbursed.

    You certainly are an individual. Acting asan individual who is only interested in your personal agenda of division. You certainly are not interested in advancing our 2nd Amendment rights and improving the Statutes in WI. You can not even put forth a respectable effort to revise/remove your local Code which is preempted by WI State law.

    Your posts on this board cast a dark shadow on our movement and those involved. Your deliberate divisiveness harmseveryone involved and the reputation of our movement. As evidenced by your actions such as beginning a post with an insult based on a childish transformation of a board user name, you are simply a self serving vain old man whoemploys tactics which should not even be considered by someone who is learned as they are a favorite of fools. One who is content to type insults from the relative solitude of your Island hideaway rather than get off your ass and do something positive.You would rather demean another and let the boat sink than grab a bucket and help with the bailing....:?

    The knowledge shared by those who frequent this board is that you are an ass. You are committed to deamonizing and demeaning others while failing to make yourself look superior. The truth is that you likely are simply a self serving fool who is not truly interested in defendong or advancing our 2A rights...

    I'm afraid your assessment is pretty accurate. Unfortunate, since Doug has a lot of knowledge. Now, some of the most egregious and sophomoric of this insults are being deleted by the moderator. Doug doesn't seem to care about that.

    The main defect that I see about Doug's prolific postings (2nd highest all time OCDO poster, counting both of his accounts) is that he writes as if everything is about....him. And his opinions and hisworldview. See his recriminations about the NRA, an organization he was a member of for years and whose certification he used to train other people (and make $$$$?).

    He seems to fancy himself a sage and oracle. But his style, language and methodology are of a dedicatedobscurantist.

    It's his way...

    Doug, as I said, has a tremendous amount of knowledge. His role here could be a lot more productive--even if he just knocked off the cutesy name-calling and insult hurling. He really is capable of better than that stuff.

    Thank you for the information on WI-Force.

    Mr. Ness took the time and effort (as did I) to go to Madison and speak against the "micro-stamping" garb. We at Wisconsin Carry, Inc. are willing to work with any/all groups in Wisconsin to advance ones ability to freely exercise their RTKBA.
