I wish I knew about it earlier. I would have asked them what is their policy if they observe a law abiding citizen openly carrying a holstered firearm.

"The officer should engage that person in an investigation to determine whether or not they are in possession of a valid LTCF. The person may be asked to lay on the ground so that the officer can disarm them and detain them until such time that they complete their investigation...for officer safety, of course."

I can't make the 25th, damn....

Running a bus trip from Easton to Wash DC for the "Gun Owners March on DC" rally. If by chance you change the date, I'll be there, OC.

I guess they didn't hear about the new "law"

Quote:3 Shot at Playground Near Overbrook H.S.

Three people were shot at a playground across the street from Overbrook High School in Philadelphia this afternoon.

Police tell NBC10 that a group of teenagers started fighting at the playground at 60th and Lancaster Avenue and that two people pulled out guns and starting shooting.

Students were having baseball practice on the field at the time of the shooting, according to a spokesman for the Philadelphia School District, who says the high school was locked down for 90 minutes.

A 17 year old was shot in the buttocks, police say. The second victim, also 17 years old, is a student at Overbrook H.S. Police say he was shot multiple times and is in critical condition.

Police tell NBC10 that a third person who was shot may have been one of the gunmen. He's believed to be in his 20s. Police are questioning witnesses right now.

Parents, with children at Overbrook H.S., recently responded to a school survey, with 20% saying they consider the area outside of the school "not safe."

Just last week, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter signed a bill, banning guns at Philadelphia playgrounds and recreation centers. Violators would face a $2,000 fine.

Once I sit down and plan the route more thoroughly, it will take us through what would be considered a public park.

Also, if anyone wants an invite to the Facebook page and doesn't already have one, send me a PM on here and I will hook you up. For those of you who don't facebook, I will update this thread periodically with any announcements or important information.

Here's a question - are they being prosecuted for violating it? No? Then what was the point Mayor Nutjob?
“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.”

Now that all the drama is behind us, let's focus on making this thing great, and get some ideas together in an organized fashion for what we want to do.

The idea here is to assemble at LOVE Park, then head down as a group to the Save the 2A rally at People's Plaza, which is at 5th and Market. Now, when Ted organized an OC rally in Philly last year, we made a few stops along the way to protest in front of key offices and the like. I'm going to head into the city one day this week to help me get an idea of where would be good to plan our route, but does anyone have any particular suggestions?

Also, I've invited Representative Daryl Metcalf to see if he's able and willing to come out and speak at the event. We also have a request from a guy who does liberty-focused music who would like to come out and play during the march (although that would require a budget, which I'll have to spend some time on figuring out). What else can we do to add some more depth to our march?

UPDATE: Good morning, everyone. One of the folks who has been helping me manage things, Al Do, pointed out that we may find it useful to assemble in a place that is undoubtedly NOT a public park, just in case there happens to be any problems.

Now, I do not anticipate any issues with the PPD, however, I did check in with the gentleman who is writing up the permit, who's name is Robert Allen. He's already submitted the paperwork for approval and sees no reason for a denial, but he also said that he would make sure an internal notification goes out to everyone with the Municipal Services and Civil Affairs that we will begin assembling initially across the street, at the top of the stairs that lead up to all the game pieces in from of the Municipal Services Building. Here's a pic of the location if you are not familiar.

Basically, we're going to meet at the Red Sorry piece. Big Grin

I will be there around 9:30am, getting everyone together and making sure we're all set to move at 10am. We'll go across the street to LOVE Park and anyone who comes between 10 and 10:30 can meet us by the LOVE sculpture before we begin our march down through the city!
