    SHORT NOTICE: FIRST EVER March 26th Sat. 1PM-3PM. Starbucks Stevens Point

    ALLCON;

    On Saturday the 26th of March, The very FIRST open carry meet and eat will occur in Stevens Point, WI at Starbucks .

    If you can make it great can't wait to meet you. If not, please spread the word to others who might be able to make it from the central Wisconsin area.


    SUMMARY:

    WHO: OCers, anyone who supports OC, or any one who is curious to meet interesting people.

    WHAT: Open Carry meet and eat (mostly coffee/java)

    WHEN: Saturday, March 26th 1PM - 3PM

    WHERE: Starbucks, Steven Point, WI

    101 Division Street
    Stevens Point, WI 54481

    WHY: To exercise your right to Open Carry and to meet other OCers.

    NOTE: Open carry is encouraged, but not require to attend. Stop on by.


    Additional notes:

    This starbucks is on private property along with the parking lot it sits in. That being said, the "gun free zone doesn't apply", and as for the university it doesn't have any say there either. Just when it comes to finding parking space, park in the lot there. I don't expect a lot of people to make it, hence short notice, but that being said, If I get 3 people there total it would be a success in my book. This is my first attempt at organizing an event, and it's a bit trial and error.

    It sounds fun, but being that Starbucks is anti military, I would have to say if the store was burning down I wouldn't pi$$ on it to help put it out. If you end up doing another OC event someplace else, let me know.

    I posted a couple weeks ago about having one at Culvers. As that Starbucks is RIGHT next to a college campus it wouldn't surprise me that you'd get some phone calls there.

    Portage County has yet to respond to my request I mailed them 12 months ago or return any of my follow up phone calls regarding their anti-OC county legislation.

    I'm not an expert on school zone issues but want to check. Is Starbucks within 1,000' of Pacelli High School and the UWSP??

    Not so from everything I've ever heard.

    There was this internet hoax:

    I would have to say it would be close with Pacelli but probably out of that zone. The UWSP however would be within that zone but I'm not sure if universities fall under that law.

    If I read the statute correctly it does not apply to universities. Google Map is far from an impeccable source, but it appears Pacelli High School is about 700' away.

    The Parking lot is private property. It's owned by the owner who owns the little three store strip mall.

    I've heard the anti military hoax about Target before as well. No business would ever be stupid enough to be anti military. It would be a death sentence to any business.
