    What do we do next?

    OK, I have been bugging my legislators and passing out fliers and such. Should we organize some sort of event in Madison after the new legislature is sworn in? Other states have what they call 'lobby days' where people show up with empty holsters and visit with their legislators and remind them who they work for.

    As Nik had said in another post, I have too much time on my hands and want to see what else I can do?

    Yeah, actually attending the last Tea party coalition meeting, their #2 priority is Constitutional Carry. They allege they have the legislation written for the top 5 and that Gunderson is considering it.

    Start making phone calls. Find out who is against your organization. See what you can do for them to back you. You could promise man power to place and remove signs for the next election for instance.

    You could start having regular meetings for all members, local politicians, and other rights orgs to attend.

    Organize charity events for Make-A Wish or something.

    Start collecting signatures for petitions or a letter writing campaign.

    Compile a list of current state level leadership. Include contact info and districts and sticky it here. Include who is with your org and who is against.

    Elect a new Chairman and board members.

    It is not uncommon for rights organizations to have yearly elections.



    Booth at gun shows, fairs, markets.

    Start a fund for lobbying.

    A lobby day sounds like a great idea. Any idea when would be a good and productive time to do something like this?

    We must contact our lawmakers today, tomorrow and the next day to remind them of Constitutional Carry.

    This would be a Dougieism even if you are not Doug.

    After all that the WCI leadership has done for us, who are you to say something like that?

    What have you done for this cause?

    They do good work, and no one else is lining up to do it.

    Just a suggestion. One of a few. Paul asked and I'm just throwing stuff out there.

    I honestly have no idea how your organization is set up or what the offices are.

    I can say unequivocally that he is not Gleason or Doug. You may not agree with him, but that does not equate to a conspiracy on his part.

    I don't think we should be replacing anyone in leadership now, maybe not ever. If anything we need more people to help those already doing the heavy lifting. That said, I know there may be differing opinions out there and that's life. Can't make everyone happy all the time.

    Thanks for standing up for me guys but it is time to come clean.

    I actually am Gleason. And Doug. There was this whole science lab, DNA, matter transfer thingy accident that happened. I could go into details but it was ugly and I really don't want to relive it. Especially just to appease some random tw*twaffle.

    So here I am. Gleasoug. No. Dougson. No. GleaDougson.

    If anything we need more people to help those already doing the heavy lifting.
    So... Does anyone have any suggestions for Paul?
