    Note:

    I spoke with one of the owners and he asked that I make absolutly sure that everyone attending the seminar use the parking lot across the street so we do not block spots for other customers comming in.

    Thank you

    Welcome! what part of Michigan are you in? The seminars I believe go over Michigan laws and teach how to deal with LEO if you should run into them.

    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

    Often CPL instructors and their legal instructors teach the laws totally wrong =[

    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    Thanks for the link tons of good information. I especially like the section talking to police about open carry. Not that I think any of theses laws are misquoted but to better CYA can you quote or reference me to any MCLs pertaining to it being illegal for any officer to detain anyone for open carrying. Or on how open carry it self dose not justify reasonable cause or reasonable suspicion? We all know what the law says but unfortunately all too often we are not help according to.the law but rather an officer's own personal bias.

    FYI:

    The seminar start time was moved to 4pm but the seminar will still take place on Sunday Jan 27th. There was a slight time conflict with a CPL class at Freedom Firearms so at their request the seminar was moved to 4pm. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
    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.
