    Greetings.

    I guess I'm a Janey come lately, you guys have been doing the walk, I, like many others have been standing down until post incorporation.

    San Mateo Sheriff Munk dissed Open carry a month ago, recently a certain East Palo Alto Police detective posted he would like to "prone us out".

    UOC is more than 2nd amendment, it is a exercise in our 1st amendment right of political expression.

    So far we have been publically dissed by our "government servants" in San Mateo at least twice. The Calguns foundation sent a very strong letter with very reasonable demands for redress.

    I expect that the letter will be ignored.:what:

    Non response to that letter is the chief of police effectively kicking us in the balls.

    This incident has gone viral across the country, if we want others to take action, we need more than just a few people to show up.

    Assuming we will not be in any "Gun Free Zones", I propose we have a UOC protest mid week at EPA city hall and that we invite the press. I floatedthis proposal over at Calguns and seeing what kind of response will happen.

    This is something that should be done within the next 2 to 3 weeks.

    If this is something you agree with and want to get involved with, drop me a e mail at nickistallard@yahoo.com

    As long as I don't have any unavoidable scheduling conflicts, I will be involved in any protest/demonstration that develops.

    Not much of a story,

    I basically live between SF Bay area and Fresno although I have official residence in Fresno. One kid there, one up in UC Davis, so I'm all over the place so to speak.

    So I'm running the San Jose Pink Pistols, it is a once a month deal. Most people want to stay private, me, I'm a political activists.

    I opened my mouth, said I would speak for the Pink Pistols at the SAF GRPCs and basically I have ended up doing occassional speaking for the Pink Pistols.

    Why do "the pink pistols" want to stay private? I was just thinking the other day that I should contact the group and see if some of them would be interested in coming to some uoc meets.

    So far we are having a very good response. On the Calguns board so far 22 people have answered yes to a similar poll.

    To be honest, we had more naysayers, but do I have to say more.

    If people keep to their word and if we can do outreach on other issues, we have the potential of having a respectable showing at EPA.

    We know how the press will report, overall I think the previous television reports were about as balanced as we can expect in the bay area.

    This is a fight for more than just gun rights, it is a fight to restore the premise that the government trully operates to protect our rights and they operate with our consent which can be revoked if they fail to honor their oaths of office.

    Last I checked the naysayers on Calguns outnumbered pros 2 to 1. That fact notwithstanding, I doubt that there would be any difficulty to get 50 armed people to participate (100 would be better), which would be formidable with each lined up a pace aparton the sidewalk.

    If you want solid poll results- ask for them to RSVP for event details, and exclude members that are a month old or under 50 posts.

    I will be there (as soon as a date is figured out and provided I have no scheduling conflicts) but am REALLY on the fence on UOC'ing. On the ONE HAND...i don't see this as a UOC issue. I know that the he was responding to the UOC issue, but I think all that did was expose the type of officer that this ****** bag is (hopefully WAS at some point).

    BUT...on the other hand...I have never actually UOC'ed before. For personal reasons (mostly I don't want to be "proned out" in front of my children and I rarely go anywhere without them) and I think that this would be the perfect time to bust my UOC cherry. Especially because I had a part early on in spreading the word about this guy. I'll play it by ear.....:celebrate

    I would go but I am too broke to be able to afford it.

    Good luck though.

    Most members of the Pink Pistols want to be discreet, both about sexual orientation and being a gun owner.

    I am writing a book which I hope to sell. Hopefully it will motivate people in the GBLT community to reconsider their positions on guns.

    Guess it will make a great christmas gift.

    Crimes commited against gays and lesbians such as the murder of Matthew Shepard and the unnamed lesbian from Richmond who was raped certainly silence those who want to live out their lives quietly... but the other side of this is that anti-gun bigotry silences those who want to arm themselves against such aggression. It seems they are painted into a corner by both circumstances.

    The odd quirk about this catch-22 is that if overcome, the anti-gun left would be hard pressed to explain why they dont want gays and lesbians to exercise the right to defend themselves from anti-gay violent crime. I believe this iscould be the exact thing that could break SF as the 'anti-gun' capital of the west coast. I think ifthe gays believe this, so will some SF politicians.

    I can understand why they are scared, but believe that the members of groups like the Pink Pistols are quite possibly the future of gun rights. People just don't care what straight white men have to say about rights.

    I hope that more can find the courage to come out and face the issues.

    If this is done after the 24th I'll be back in town and can participate. I'll invite the all the GBLT's I know.

    I want to extend the offer to sponsor 2 unemployed open carriers for their travel and food.

    I can't carry anymore. . . And although I would like to make it, I suspect that it would take 1 tank of gas in my truck.

    1 tanks @ 30 gallons, $2.95 a gallon is $88.50. . . Just to get big 'ol me up there. . . There are probably better ways to spend $80 for the cause.
