    ICarry.org Begins Fundraiser for Wisconsin Carry, Inc!!!

    http://www.icarry.org/donate.html

    Please use this link to donate to Wisconsin Carry, Inc's efforts in bringing suits against the City of Madison, Madison Police, Police Chief, and anyone else culpable (ICarry is making assumptions as to whom the defendants may be).

    This is for the 5 men arrested for open carrying, minding their own business. They were NOT staging anything or trying to get arrested. Some of these men are known to us personally, and we know their intentions were nothing more than to meet with one another, share a meal and conversation, and be able to exercise their fundamental right to bear arms. These open carry meet-ups are happening everywhere, and this one was no different.

    Someone called the police to inquire as to whether or not what they were doing (simply openly carrying pistols) is legal. Instead of informing the caller that it is, and asking the caller if anything else seems out of place, Madison PD sent 8 officers there to harass, intimidate, and violate many rights of the citizens.

    Wisconsin Carry, Inc. has tried to solve this diplomatically, but Madison Police Chief Noble Wray has simply declared all-out war by charging all 5 men with disorderly conduct, despite the Wisconsin Attorney General stating that open carry is not disorderly conduct and should not be prosecuted!

    Separately and privately, to no one else's knowledge, ICarry.org contacted Madison Police Chief Wray. We had a good conversation with him, and tried our best to make progress to deescalate this situation and get the police and law-abiding gun owners back on the same page. Chief Wray failed to mention his decision to charge all 5 men with disorderly conduct. Needless to say, we are very disappointed by this reaction of his, and we look forward to the day in court everyone will have.

    We are calling on the entire country - particularly the grassroots gun rights groups like Wisconsin Carry and ICarry.org who really make the difference these days for support in this. Wisconsin is a most pivotal piece in the countrywide Right to Carry movement. Wisconsin is one of only 2 states left with completely concealed carry prohibition. As such, Open Carry has grown into a sensational movement unlike anywhere else in the nation.

    All attempts will be made to transform Wisconsin into a state where law-abiding can choose which method to carry - open or concealed - based on what suits their needs and personal preferences. All attempts will be made to see this choice be a real right - no permit or license required - like Alaska, Vermont, and now Arizona.

    Wisconsin can go from red to green on the Right to Carry map in one sure step after the upcoming election.

    ICarry.org has witnessed countless open carry events - picnics, litter pickups, food drives, rallies, and simple casual get-togethers. These events are very spontaneous - anyone can decide to start one somewhere and people from nearby show up. Through these events, patriotic supporters of the right to bear arms have gotten to know one another, shared personal experiences, shared knowledge and education, comradery, and hopes.

    Wisconsin Carry, Inc. has taken the lead to promote the safe and lawful exercise of rights for self-defense, educating the public, and staunch defense of open carry in Wisconsin. Through numerous lawsuits challenging things like the unconstitutional "gun-free school zones" relic law in Wisconsin, to blatant violations of an individual's rights, they have proven themselves to be an organization of action - not of words or politics.

    ICarry.org considers Wisconsin Carry, Inc. to be one of the finest firearms rights organizations in the country. We consider ourselves blessed to work in the same state as them, assist them when possible, and simply share the Wisconsin Open Carry experience with them.

    Please help us take the Wisconsin example beyond the border to the many states that need carry law reform. The right to carry is sweeping the nation, and the adamant defense of that right by organizations like Wisconsin Carry is creating the possibility for countrywide recognition of the fundamental right of peaceable citizens to bear arms - no questions asked.

    Please help ICarry.org raise $5,000 for Wisconsin Carry's lawsuit and injunction against the City of Madison today. It will make a difference for all states!

    We've gotten $500 or so from Illinois residents/members to help out the battle up in Wisconsin - a battle that will affect everyone.

    I wonder if people from other states could join in as well???

    Decided a donation of $17.87 would be a good way to honor our US Constitution and support you guys at the same time

    Keep at it!

    I'm from Virginia, but this seems to be a worthy cause, so I've chipped in. I've seen cases like this here in the past, but the kind of abuse you are experiencing there has pretty much stopped here through our persistence and tenacity. You've got to do the same thing. Get good legal counsel and don't let the bastards grind you down. Put a finger on their foreheads and just keep on pushing, every day until they give up. YOU WILL WIN IF YOU ARE THE KIND OF PEOPLE I THINK YOU ARE!

    my sincere and special thanks to our brothers south of the border. there isn't a day that goes by that i don't think of the struggles you guys face down there, and how your rights are restricted even more than ours up here. damn shame that you guys have to come to our events, here in our state, to exercise rights that you are prohibited from practicing in your home state. your all honorable men in my book, and welcome at our events any time. again, thanks to all of you for your support.

    I like the excuse to come up to WI. I miss visiting from my time in the AF up there. It is a damn shame that we aren't allowed to use our rights yet, but the day is soon approaching.

    We've raised just over $1,000 for Wisconsin Carry, Inc. and their efforts to see local officials in Madison uphold the state law and respect the rights of honest, responsible firearms owners to bear arms, especially in a state where 79% of the population voted that this is a right people have for security, self-defense, and ANY OTHER LAWFUL PURPOSE.

    Most of the donations to ICarry for Wisconsin Carry, Inc. came from our brothers and sisters in Illinois. We stand together!!!
