Pirateguy191 brings up a good point - what attire should we plan on wearing?

In case anyone wonders what the dress code is like for something like this - slacks and a polo shirt (preferably an OFCC branded one) is fine. If you have a blazer throw it on, but do NOT wear a tie! I only wear a tie if I am going to be giving testimony before a committee. That's not on our agenda, so no tie for me.

What time do you need us, Chuck?

How long are we needed to stay?
Yes, I do believe in open carry. An openly armed man is clear in his intentions. Concealed carriers are sneaks and skulkers and elitist, boot licking, political contribution making, running dog lackies of The Man. <wink> (thx grumpycoconut - OpenCarry.org)

First appointments so far are at 8:00, I think, and the last so far, is at 4:00pm, so planning on being there until at least 5:00 is probably a good idea.
I'll double check the list when I get home tonight to be sure, and we are still making appointments too.

I think we ought to meet up around 7:30 or so to divide into groups and take a picture or two

Thanks!

For Tuesday the earliest appointment is at 9:00am so I think an 8:30 meetup at the cafeteria on the statehouse's ground floor should work fine.

I know a few folks can't show up until later - we can get your pictures at lunch. :idea:

Well, a little earlier day than normal for me to make the 2-hour drive, but not bad.

We had an EXCELLENT day at the statehouse today!
We started out the morning lobbying legislators for a bill to repeal Ohio's notification law and before lunch was over, the bill was introduced in the House!
HB 142 is the bill, and I urge everyone to contact their representatives to support it.
We'll have information soon about what committee and when the hearings are.
We do it again tomorrow

That was a great day! If you haven't done this before, you really ought to consider coming out for the next one. I had not helped at one before (heck, I hadn't even been to the statehouse before!) and after shadowing Morne for a couple, I took another team with me and we talked to 2 Senators (including the Senator from my district, Oelslager) two Representatives and one Representative's aide. Very interesting the different levels of knowledge about concealed carry and mandatory notification - not surprising since most don't have a CHL, and some don't even own guns. I learned a lot about how the process works, and figure I'll be back again hopefully next time assuming I can work out the schedule with my employer.

Sorry I am missing this! Ted is at work today, so I have kid-duty, and I have meetings at work all day tomorrow.

Glad to hear that there is movement on notification this fast!! Kudos to all who went/are going!
