    Wanted to know if there were any members coming to the upcoming gun show in Evansville at the Red Barn this weekend. If so, I'd like to meet some of you and bounce some questions off of you.



    Let me know. Thanks

    Is it OC friendly? I plan on going to Waukesha in the evening Sat, but I could swing out that way earlier.
    In God I trust. Everyone else needs to keep your hands where I can see them.

    Can a city ordinance supersede the state constitution?

    No big deal. I'll leave it at home.

    That depends on what 'is' is or, in this case, can can.

    Wisc. Stats. sub-chapter 66.0409 says no and list the exceptions.

    (b) If a political subdivision has in effect on November 17, 1995, an ordinance or resolution that regulates the sale, purchase, transfer, ownership, use, keeping, possession, bearing, transportation, licensing, permitting, registration or taxation of any firearm or part of a firearm, including ammunition and reloader components, and the ordinance or resolution is not the same as or similar to a state statute, the ordinance or resolution shall have no legal effect and the political subdivision may not enforce the ordinance or resolution on or after November 18, 1995.


    82-372(a) is null, void, unenforceable. Send a letter to your city council/village whatever and ask them to remove the old 14 and 1/2 old junk from the ordinances.

    Carry On.

    There are only five places restricted by state law (Cars, Bars, Government Buildings, State Parks, School Zones). See this thread: http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum57/27414.html

    Otherwise, carry everywhere possible whenever possible.

    Is the Red Barn a restaurant? If so, what size gun show can there be in such a small space? Who is sponsoring the gun show there?
    The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the People of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. -- Samuel Adams

    Today, we need a nation of Minutemen. Citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.

    John F. Kennedy

    So is that actually Evansville's law? If it is, I think we need to get ahold of some people and get it junked.

    BTW, Red Barn actually is a half-way decent show. We're going to be at the restaurant near the Red Barn at 8am Saturday if anyone wants to meet up let me know so we can keep our eyes open.

    I just checked the map, it's bit farther out than I planned. My poor dog would be in his kennel all day.
