    Tons of violence in broadripple causes an "occupy" with guns response.

    This event is Saturday november 26 11pm to 3am meet out infront of the vogue.

    [/QUOTE]
    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:

    Great, great, great idea. Sadly, i have to work next weekend. I'm anxious to see how the Broad Ripple crowd will respond to the groups.

    I'll be out of town, so I won't be in attendance. That being said, I both live and work in the Village, and make it a point to OC as much as possible. I haven't gotten any negative feedback yet.

    Fantastic idea!!! I would like to do something like that in Evansville. Unfortunately/fortunately we don't have a really high repeat crime area. We seem to be having scattered armed robberies all around town. I'd love to be there but can't. If this gets to be a regular thing I'll go out of my way to make one after Thanksgiving or Christmas. Again, beautiful idea.

    I see a group arrest coming out of this. Cops in Broad Ripple are extremely anti gun (more than normal).

    Guy will hook you up with a defense. Hard to be arrested for obeying the law unless they call it an unsanctioned protest or whatever, but then they just tell you to leave first
    Amazing Grace, how sweet was her sound.

    Love them as if you'll lose them.

    An idea...how about trying to reach out to the bar owners in Broad Ripple, and see if you could organize some sort of escort service for those female patrons who would like to have an escort to their vehicle. You could provide the bar owners/management with a main contact number (cell) where they would call/text the bar/address/first name of the girl who would like an escort. Your group would dispatch 2+ escorts to walk her safely to her car.

    Thoughts?

    Has the media been notified?

    Media scrutiny goes a long way to dampening law enforcement misbehavior.

    I think anything above what was posted would be one hell of a liability problem. Can you imagine offering a bar employee an "escort" to their vehicle, she/he gets mugged or shot at anyway and they come back at you and say, "You offered to SAFELY escort me to my car and I trusted you." I wouldn't put myself in that situation for anything. Now just letting people know you are on the sidewalk and they understand you aren't responsible for their safety, yeah, that might fly.
