I was thinking the same thing earlier today. How to we keep this moving and start to move it into a more serious light.
I think the next meeting should be more than just a social gathering (Not to say I don't enjoy them, because I do). I think we should work to draw and develop some more plans. I love Open Carry, I love the fact that we are out there, showing people that guns and gun owners are not evil, now lets take the next step and make serious strides towards preemption.
I can admit right now, I don't know enough about the legislative process. I don't know how these laws are proposed, if they are only voted on at certain times, all of these things. This is why we need to pool our recourses and work together. Start contacting representatives, start doing more things that bring us together as an officiated group with a mission and purpose, and a way to pursue it.
