This is going on in my little village, and this is how we are handling it!

OPEN CARRY IN BROADRIPPLE 11/26/11 from 11pm to 3am College AVE in Broad Ripple.



Come on out and support your community....


https://www.facebook.com/events/245825682139984/

WHY: As the result of several violent robberies and sexual attacks in the Broad Ripple Village, we would like to draw public attention to the importance of carrying a firearm. We would also like to send a message to the criminals that perpetrate these crimes that they are playing with fire when they commit these cowardly crimes.

THE WHERE AND WHAT: The plan is that we will meet outside the Vogue. We will be carrying holstered handguns in open carry. At that time we will distribute our informational packets (things like Gun Permit Applications and locations of gun stores) and break off into small groups of 2-3 and walk around the bar areas of the strip and talking to all who are interested about the need for responsible adults to become licensed to carry a handgun. A group of even a dozen activists could wind up being a decent spectacle and draw lots of attention to this important cause including media coverage. Just imagine if we could mobilize 2 dozen!

WHO: This event is open to all people who can legally carry a handgun in the State of Indiana. Those supporters who cannot are also welcome to help distribute gun permit applications. This event is strictly a pro-carry, pro-second amendment event. Signs are welcome (ASK ME HOW TO GET A GUN PERMIT!) < good one! Alcohol consumption by volunteers/activists is strongly discouraged/forbade.

Everyone will need to dress warm and be ready to talk to the public about current issues, especially recent attacks in Broadripple and the importance of females to either carry or be accompanied by someone who does. Here is some reading in case you havent been following the robbery and sexual assault stories:

Cops are nicer that Transport Officers. I only can choose between walk or shoot.

Whoa - that's flat crazy JD. When the only option is to arm yourself... hell, you might as well live in Oakland.
