NRA Workshop

Some quick things before I head to bed for the day (grumble grumble night shifts...)

Tonight is the NRA "Grassroots" Workshop at the Rothschild/Wausau Gander Mountain.  I'll be there with the M&P in hanging out in it's Raven-clad glory assuming I wake up in time to make the drive.

Apparently the things filled up awful quick, what with the actual honest to FSM concealed carry bills being introduced, so they set up some more-

Dear Fred:

For Concealed Carry To Become a Reality, the NRA Needs Your Help! Due to popular demand for NRA-ILA's grassroots workshops, the NRA's state association Wisconsin FORCE has scheduled three more FREE Workshops to help secure the Right-to-Carry Concealed. It’s time for Wisconsin to join free America!

During last November’s elections, NRA members and gun owners throughout the Badger State sent a clear message to elected officials that a strong Right-to-Carry law must be a legislative priority. Residents of Wisconsin sent their legislators to Madison to secure their freedom.

To ensure we are prepared to meet the challenges posed by anti-gun forces and answer questions our members have about this legislation, Wisconsin FORCE, your NRA chartered state association, will be hosting a series of workshops throughout the state.

Please plan on attending to learn more about the bills, as well as what you need to do as gun-owners to assist in our efforts. At this meeting, Wisconsin FORCE will discuss the bills, as well as what each of you need to do to ensure victory. This meeting is absolutely free. The workshop will run about 60-90 minutes.

Please make plans to attend one of our events and encourage your fellow NRA members and Second Amendment supporters to attend as well.

Here are the details for the upcoming workshops:

Also, earlier in the day is the Concealed Carry Hearing at UWMC.  I'm not sure what the start time is, but it's supposed to run till 6pm.  If you're in the area, it would be an ideal time to voice your opinion to those making the decisions.
