    Volunteers to take flyers to your local gun shops

    WCI is planning to have tens of thousands of the "Constitutional Carry legislative initiative" flyers printed up.

    We need these to be distributed to gun stores ALL over the state.

    Locally, the WCI board members will distribute to stores near us, but we need volunteers who we can mail a box of these flyers to who PROMISE to, within a week of receipt of them, take them to local gun stores in YOUR area to distribute.

    I am making this request on this forum vs. emailing our entire memberlist so that we can post stores that are "covered" and those that aren't so we don't duplicate effort or get dozens of emails about the same store.

    SO, if YOU are willing to PROMISE to, within a week of receipt, distribute flyers to gun stores, (large and small) including sporting goods stores that sell guns, please post the name of the store OR stores you volunteer to distribute these flyers to, and we will compile a list, see who can cover what and ship them to volunteers to distribute.

    You'll want to stop in a gun store, identify yourself as a volunteer for WCI, have a conversation with the staff, be able to explain constitutional carry, perhaps even address a couple of objections.

    To reduce shipping costs and logistical efficiency, if multiple people volunteer for the same store, it will be most efficient to ship a box of flyers to those who can cover the most stores.

    In the meantime, people could also print off flyers (its intended to be printed 2-sided)

    Brass Magnet: (Baraboo Area)
    -Gander Mountain Baraboo
    -Ace hardware Sauk Prairie
    -True Value Reedsburg
    - Jim's Gun's Baraboo

    Carcharadon (appleton area)
    -Appleton Gander Mtn
    -Scheels
    - Fleet Farm
    -Jons Sport Shop in Oshkosh.

    Icrewuh60 (Madison area)
    - Gander Mtn.
    -Dicks Sporting Goods,
    -PT Firearms, a certain
    -Napa store in Mt. Horeb

    Gander Baraboo Ace sauk Prairie

    I could take care of Gander Mountain in Baraboo if Cowboyrdn hasn't already and Ace Sauk Pairie. Maybe Reedsburg True Value as well. My brothers sporting goods shop may be a good place too although he only does archery and fishing a lot of people stop in there.

    I don't know how many I'd need though.

    How many flyers to a box?
    I'm guessing that you are planning on leaving a box there for people to take?


    ETA: You know, an offering of WCI jackets for us to buy would be nice for this time of year. It's nice to have a WCI shirt when doing some volunteer work but a T-shirt seems like it would be a little chilly right about now. LOL

    Oh yeah, there's also Jim's Guns in Baraboo. Not sure how much he is open lately though.


    Oh, and what about ranges? I may be able to get some in at Winnequah but I'll have to talk to some members.

    I would think a archery/fishing store may tend to attract a similar gun-owning customer base.

    Not sure yet. Just getting an idea of where we have volunteers willing to spend a little time for constitutional carry.

    I sure can but that's Cowboyridn's turf and I'd offer him first chance at it if he'd like.

    All the ones I've mentioned are within my normal stomping grounds; so to speak, so it's not a big deal for me to talk with them for a few minutes and drop off a box of flyers.

    this is good. Anyone send a copy to Rep Gunderson ? The guy that drafted the future CCW bill that will be introduced sometime this next legislative session. He is the guy we all here must hammer on plus our own individual elected officials.

    Guys,

    I support your efforts, but I'd like to encourage you to be more accurate.

    Virginia has many options for satisfying the training requirement in order to obtain a Concealed Handgun Permit. http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp...0+cod+18.2-308 lists them:

    G. The court shall require proof that the applicant has demonstrated competence with a handgun and the applicant may demonstrate such competence by one of the following, but no applicant shall be required to submit to any additional demonstration of competence, nor shall any proof of demonstrated competence expire:

    1. Completing any hunter education or hunter safety course approved by the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries or a similar agency of another state;

    2. Completing any National Rifle Association firearms safety or training course;

    3. Completing any firearms safety or training course or class available to the general public offered by a law-enforcement agency, junior college, college, or private or public institution or organization or firearms training school utilizing instructors certified by the National Rifle Association or the Department of Criminal Justice Services;

    4. Completing any law-enforcement firearms safety or training course or class offered for security guards, investigators, special deputies, or any division or subdivision of law enforcement or security enforcement;

    5. Presenting evidence of equivalent experience with a firearm through participation in organized shooting competition or current military service or proof of an honorable discharge from any branch of the armed services;

    6. Obtaining or previously having held a license to carry a firearm in the Commonwealth or a locality thereof, unless such license has been revoked for cause;

    7. Completing any firearms training or safety course or class, including an electronic, video, or on-line course, conducted by a state-certified or National Rifle Association-certified firearms instructor;

    8. Completing any governmental police agency firearms training course and qualifying to carry a firearm in the course of normal police duties; or

    9. Completing any other firearms training which the court deems adequate.

    A photocopy of a certificate of completion of any of the courses or classes; an affidavit from the instructor, school, club, organization, or group that conducted or taught such course or class attesting to the completion of the course or class by the applicant; or a copy of any document which shows completion of the course or class or evidences participation in firearms competition shall constitute evidence of qualification under this subsection.
    The on-line program is one that meets #9. With some persuasion I know that I could get my local Circuit Court Clerk to accept reading posts on OCDO for one week. :>) Notice the last clause in #5? No "proof of training" involved there - it is a presumption that you got some training. I have assisted WWI vets in getting their CHP by finding a DD-214 or Discharge Certificate.

    Please don't let the error ride just because it was unintentional. Virginians don't need the error brought up by the anti's.

    Good luck to you in your efforts. Be sure to stop by and say hello if you ever get to the Old Dominion.

    stay safe.

    I've spoken to his staffers at length and you are absolutely correct. HE is being lobbied hard by the gun-instructor crowd/groups and from conversations with his staffer "mike" he makes it sound like Gunderson is solidy SHALL-ISSUE.

    Gunderson's staffer said he "in principle" supports constitution carry, but gave me EVERY TYPICAL excuse in the book why we should pursue shall-issue. None of the excuses made sense to me. Most were the "well no one has gone from no concealed carry to constitutional carry, so its not realistic" type comments.

    Of course, that is hogwash.

    If that be the case, the first shall-issue state could have said "no state has shall issue".

    There HAS to be a first. Its time to tell the "old boy" legislators who've been buried in Madison politics for FAR too long that they need to step up to the freedom table. The elections of Nov. 2nd are proof positive people want LESS government, not more.

    I can cover Madison. Thinking of Gander Mtn. Dicks Sporting Goods, PT Firearms, a certain Napa store in Mt. Horeb and I know of one gun shop in Sun Prairie but can't remember the name.

    Anything else in the Madison Area? Not too many firearm shops in Madison.

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

    Stoughton Conservation Club, I don't see anything in the rules stating I can't leave some of these there.
    They have two club houses, so some should be left at each one.

    Brendon .45 and Cowboyridn do you want to split up the Greater Madison area with me? Ship the flyers to one of us, meet up, like at Culvers or something and then go on our way?
