    I do believe I'll be going.

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Exclamation Details, details, details...

    We invite all supporters of freedom, gun rights, and Open Carry to attend Legally Armed In Detroit's (LAID) Second Annual Open Carry Dinner. The evening's festivities will feature admission to the venue, free on-site parking, a delicious dinner, live entertainment, and the benefit of hearing addresses from two well known national gun rights activists: Pastor Kenn VF Blanchard (Black Man With A Gun) and Mr. John Pierce (Founder of OpenCarry.org).

    Last year's dinner did not feature any nationally recognized gun rights speakers and still managed to sell completely out of tickets. This year we made it a point to outdo last year's dinner. Pastor Blanchard's and Mr. Pierce's appearances will assure that. As such, tickets are limited and I am extremely confident that this event will sell out. So, if you desire to attend, buy your ticket now!

    Pastor Kenn VF Blanchard Mr. John Pierce - Founder of OpenCarry.org

    Persons who wish to pay in advance via cash can make an appointment with the event organizer, Rick Ector, by calling phone number 313.733.7404.

    Do keep in mind that tickets bought at the door, on the day of the event, will be $40 per person. So, register early and reserve your seat at this historic event.


    !!!Yikes! Is this being held at the Ritz? I can find no specifics on where exactly this is being held at? Help please??? My GoogleFu is off today.!!!

    Found it - No not at the Ritz. At the "Upper Room" Telegraph & Grand River Rds.

    Being held at "The Upper Room Christian Entertainment Center " On Grand River Just off Telegraph Rd. in West side Detroit.

    Sorry Stainless this appears to be priced way out of yours and some other's financial comfort zone.

    Looks like this will be a good time for those who attend.

    Thanks Fozzy. I fumbled upon it, but it took me a while. Man I'm getting old :P

    --Moderator edit--

    Such postings hardly benefit the very public perception of OCDO.

    Please do not continue to pursue this line of commenting as it distracts from the main, important mission of the thread.

    I purchsed my ticket a few minutes ago, the cost is $25 right now via paypal for the early birds, after July 19th the price goes up to $35 and as stated before, if you wait to the day of the event, it will be $40 at the door. Don't wait to purchase your tickets if you are serious about attending.

    I can likely arrange to swing by and pick you up if needed.

    Rick, I haven't seen you since we kept bumping into each other in 2010 at the coffee shop. I'm eagerly awaiting this fine evening.
