These events are always a good time and if you know someone who is curious about open carry or would just like to come along feel free to bring whoever you would like, these events are open to the public and you need not be a member to join us. Children are also welcome to these events as well, so bring your family.

    The worst weapon is the human mind, its created and done things far worse than a gun can, has, or ever will. Its the human mind that tells the gun what to do and animates the inanimate object.

    With all these gun control laws in place I have yet to find a single one that has saved someones life, but I can find hundreds of stories where a gun has.

    Ok poor person question, how are the prices?
    My reasons to OC
    1. to raise awareness of the legality of open carry in Michigan
    2. To raise awareness that good people carry guns
    3. A deterrent to people so that I won't be targeted
    4. Because it's more comfortable than CC in most situations
    5. Because I can and want to
    6. Because it's perfectly legal
    7. Self defense

    Prices are very good and you get a good meal for your money, $30 dollars will probably cover your meal, tip, and leave you money left over...depending on how much you eat.

    they have a copy of their menu on their website, not sure if it lists prices though.

    So Adam any thoughts to moving it to the 26th? I'm excited to have a K-zoo meet up but in light of the SB-59 rally the 25th that might take some priority over the lunch. I would love to do both. And I'll get with you about a week before the lunch and if you can get me some MOC event flyers or something I'll post them around kalamazoo and the area.

    That wouldnt be too bad, I have one seat remaining in my car if you can make it to Battle Creek, and I'm sure the others wont mind stopping for dinner on the way back either.

    OK I'm assuming at this point the dinner will still be on Sunday.

    Anyone want to meet at Theo & Stacy's at 9:AM Saturday to car-pool to Battle Creek then Monroe?

    Thanks to everyone who was able to make it, we had about 26 people or so attend, it was a great time and a few of us also stopped at Cold Stone Creamery for ice cream afterwards and a couple of people were educated about their rights while we were there. Looking forward to the next one!
