    Even gun owners from other states are welcome. The more people that show up, the greater the impact it will have on all of the anti gun bills currently being considered.

    First - Thanks for committing to attend.

    My recommendation is to wear business casual clothing. No camo, no orange, etc. They have t shirts, but if it is cold or raining, you will want something to go over it. A few of us who are at the capitol regularly might be in suits as the legislators are used to seeing us in suits and ties, but it really isn't necessary. We will be wearing association or pro gun badges or lapel pins.

    You might want to bring your own lunch. You can get food in the cafeteria under the capitol but it takes a while and isn't very good. Other than that, food is two to three blocks away.

    Do not bring knives of any kind let alone guns. Except for certain people, you will be going through metal detectors.

    My plan is to drive down and leave ccw in the car, pocket knife too. I am generally dressed in t-shirt and cargo pants with my carhart coat... general worker dude attire... unless you think something better is in order.
    This will the first time for me so please excuse the questions.

    What you suggest seems fine. Bring some friends if you can. Again, thanks for getting involved.

    I think my wife will also attend and I am going to spread the word where I can. Co-workers, friends, ask LGSs to post the flyer and encourage folks to go.

    I hope to meet some THR members there!
