I think it's time we all get together again in Independence! I am available on Tuesday or Wednesday evenings...or anytime on a Saturday...say between 0800am and 4pm. Just let me know when and where.
Pretty soon after the last one....I like it.
I'm game. Hope I have my new FNP-45 by the time it rolls around.
Take a look everyone and see what u think.
Independence city ordinance prohibits possession of firearms in city parks. Has there been discussion about these laws before? I'm curious to hear the opinions on the ordinance.
I found this:
ARTICLE 3. SAFE STREETS REGULATIONS
C. It is unlawful for any person to possess any firearm or deadly weapon upon any school grounds,
within any park, playground or public building or public facility within the corporate limits of the City of
Independence unless such person is otherwise permitted by law to do so.
I guess parks are a no go. I'd better look better into other cities laws on this as well. That'd be a bad screw up.
SEC. 13.01.013. PARKS - FIREARMS - FIREWORKS.
A. It shall be unlawful for any person in a park to:
1. Possess firearms or other weapons, except as provided in Chapter 12 of this Code;
SEC. 12.03.003. UNLAWFUL USE OF WEAPONS.
A. A person commits the crime of unlawful use of weapons if he or she knowingly:
5. Possesses or discharges a firearm or projectile weapon while intoxicated; orEXCEPT THAT:
8. Carries a firearm or any other weapon readily capable of lethal use into any church or place where people have assembled for worship, or into any election precinct on any election day, or into any building owned or occupied by any agency of the Federal government, State government, or political subdivision thereof; or
10. Carries a firearm, whether loaded or unloaded, or any other weapon readily capable of lethal use into any school, onto any school bus, or onto the premises of any function or activity sponsored or sanctioned by school officials or the district school board.
8 and 10 do not apply to LEO's, CCW holders, official duty military, civil process servers, probation/parole officers, judges, coroner, medical examiner, and wardens and detention officers.
SEC. 12.03.004. FIREARMS IN CITY BUILDINGS.
A. No person who has been issued a concealed carry endorsement by the Missouri Director of revenue under Section 571.094 RSMo. or who has been issued a valid permit or endorsement to carry concealed firearms issued by another state or political subdivision of another state, shall, by authority of that endorsement or permit, be allowed to carry a concealed firearm or to openly carry a firearm in any building or portion of a building or any park owned, leased or controlled by the City.
B. Signs shall be posted at each entrance of a building entirely owned, leased or controlled by the City and at park entrances stating that entry while carrying firearms is prohibited. Where the City owns, leased or controls only a portion of a building, signs shall be posted at each entrance to that portion of a the building stating that carrying of firearms is prohibited.
Obviously, standard state and federal statutes apply too.
Guess parks are a no go unless maybe we head to a neighboring city. Even then we need to be careful and see if we need a permit to gather there. Some laws are just retarded. Where should we meet?
And where's all the interest we had last time? Speak up people.
Still count myself and BILL27GLOCK. What about a county park like a Jacomo shelter house?
Yeah I agree wait til its a little cooler! I dont enjoy just standing outside and sweating....
I'm all good with cooler weather. Crazy hot lately.
New member here, first post and all that. I have a CCW and have had for as long as legal here and before that had one living in Texas however I have just stumbled across this whole OC subject while looking for something entirely different on the web. I am definitely interested in a M&G here in Independence and meeting others in this town to learn more as I venture into this new realm cautiously so as to avoid breaking any laws due to ignorance on the subject.
Welcome Cavvet2. Were trying to get one together now just waiting for the weather to break.
Thx again for the response...
You gents are ALWAYS welcome to come back up and join us few 'n proud in St. Joe again if all else falls through!
Of course our Brother's n Arms up in St. Joe are cordially invited to come on down and join us when we determine this heat wave has broken...but I'm anxious to meet everyone again soon!
Let's make this happen, then! I'd love to catch up with you all again soon!

well instead of waiting for cooler weather. why not go to a resteraunt or somewhere indoors.
well a resturaunt sounds like a good ideal if you cant find a park to have one in,or we could have another oc bbq here like someone else suggested,either one is good for me.just let me know when and where and i will be there..
