    Need member to join the DNR lawsuit

    I was contacted by Attorney Jim Manley with Mountain States Legal Foundation and they are interested in perusing the lawsuit against the DNR The law suit is about being able to carry in a state Park as Iíve stated here and perhaps they will also consider pursuing the prohibition against having a firearm in the woods 24 hours prior to the gun deer season. You can find a copy of the law suit on here on wisconsincarry.org blog. I need members who want to join the law suit, pm me if interested and I will give you the phone number to attorney Manley, he is looking to add 3-5 people to the suit. This suit is not for money it is to have a judge find that the statute is unconstitutional.

    What are the criteria?

    Does the person need to plan to use State parks or carry a firearm during the 24 hours before deer season?

    It would be interesting to see when and if Article I section 26 comes into play on these issues and which one trumps. Under Art I sec 26 wll the courts fine that these restrictions described in the suit "are reasonable restrictions on the sport of hunting"? I expect that at some point of time that the Art I sec 25 and Art I sec 26 constitutional amendments will collide. Interesting question to put to the courts and another dilemma we will face.

    I'd be interested in hearing this answered too!

    What does becoming involved require?

    "Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The (US) Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters . . . but they mean to be masters."
    [Daniel Webster]

    No, the person don't have to plan on doing either.

    Don't think of it as `gun control', think of it as `victim disarmament'.

    At Don's request I spoke with the Jim Manley the other day and he said that the best co-plaintiffs to have standing are as follows: (best candidates would meet the first criteria, 2nd best second criteria, etc.)


    -anyone who has been cited for carrying in a state park

    -anyone who has requested permission to carry in a state park and been denied
    (ex HINT HINT someone wrote a letter saying they believe they have a right to carry in a state park and being threatened with citation if they did)

    -anyone who desires to, and likely would carry in a state park if the law
    allowed.

    Labor Day Camping Trip

    My family took a traditional camping trip during Labor Day weekend this year. When we arrived I let the check in at the park know that I had brought fire arms and intended to openly carry. The check in person was pro carry himself, and said that he would have park rangers meet me out our campsite per my request. The Park Rangers told me to leave them under lock and key or else I would be arrested and they brought a photo copy of the statue with them. I have no recordings or letters of the incident...but I do have at least one "credible" witness.

    Pm me and I will give you the phone number to the attorney. Ask him about your witness and what you need to prove this happened. The attorney is looking for those, as nic stated, that have had an experianced an incedent.
