    SOUTH FLORIDA Open carry fishing event!

    http://www.meetup.com/Florida-Open-C...ents/17922471/

    Okay we got the owners permission and law enforcement is going along

    At Everglades Holiday Park!

    http://www.evergladesholidaypark.com/locate.html



    Come join us for the FIRST SOUTH Florida Open Carry event to raise awareness of Open Carry rights in Florida 10AM - 12PM

    Open Carry Events will be held simultaneously in Daytona Beach, Tampa, St. Augustine, and Ft. Myers.

    Fishing license is required! If your a broward resident and have a cane pole no license is required. They also sell licenses there. They have a full tackle store, food and drinks also. Just bring your rod, gun, and yourself!



    Driving Directions

    Coming from the north or the south, take I-95 or the Florida Turnpike to I-595 west. Head west on I-595 to I-75 south. Continue south on I-75 to Griffin Road west (exit 13B). Head west on Griffin Road until it crosses over Route 27. This is where Griffin Road dead ends at the entrance to Everglades Holiday Park!

    If you are coming from the north, you might consider using the Sawgrass Expressway (869) to drive south instead of I-95 or the Turnpike. Since the Sawgrass is farther west, you will head directly into I-75 and therefore take a more direct route to the park.

    Wish I could afford the gas. But I'm guessing most are glad I won't be there. :-p

    JK. There are going to be multiple events that day, not just in South Florida. Check out the calendar.

    Hmmm. I'm 2 hours from the nearest one. Just can't do it. I guess I'll save up to make the trip to Tally for lobby day in January.

    That works. I'm only an hour from you then you can drive to Tally.

    Once the pending advice/strategy from our leaders comes, I'll be making trips to Dean's Ocala office, and maybe Oelrich's in Gainesville. There is stuff we can do even if isolated from the OC action on the coasts.

    Whichever, don't matter to me. Daytona or Tampa are closest after swinging by your place right?

    Going from Marion county to Daytona is an extremely painful drive because you'll get behind someone slow. I could meet you at I-75 in Belleview and then it's an easy straight shot to Tampa- hour and a half (at the speed limit) to Tampa. Assuming the OC location is not south of Tampa.

    Plus, Tampa is in hostile territory. Ha!

    as for S. FL./Dania count me in!
    American Government 101:
    The Executive branch's job is to provide celebrity figureheads for the pandering populace.
    The Legislative branch's job is to progressively destroy our freedoms for the "safety" of "We the Sheeple."
    The Judicial branch's job is to look like they're defending our freedoms against the abuses of the Legislative branch, only by token gestures that do not interfere is this pivotal process, but enough to deceive "We the People" into a false sense of security.

    Ixtow, you would be missed more than most. You kept us informed throughout the entire process, and have been knowledgeable, articulate, and priceless throughout. I don't know how many have had the chance to say it but, thank you. You've given this forum both its wittiness and its gravitas: you kept us in the know, and you kept it light.

    Borrow a friend's four cylinder and come down to South Florida.

    Not near Dania and can't make the trip? Well, there's always Fort Myers if you're on that side of the state. Several other cities also hosting on the second Saturday of the month.

    We've got a good group that shows up and we've even been known to catch a stupid fish!!

    If you don't own fishing equipment and don't want to spend a mint outfitting yourself, are really doing this more as a political protest and not for anything else, don't want to blow a wad of cash, etc...

    http://www.google.com/products/catal...0CGkQ8wIwAzgU#

    Just some examples. Hell, put a hook on a spool of line... Whatever.

    This costs less than the gas to drive to the event...

    I got mine for less than $5 at Bass Pro just a month ago, but they seem to have discontinued the product...
