Thread: Former MI resident question.
I grew up in Michigan, Livingston county to be exact. I've left 7 years ago due to Economy and currently live in Seattle. Open carry is pretty accepted here, with a few incidents from time to time.
My question is I am thinking of checking my XDS or Sig when I fly home for the holidays. My CPL is good there, but as a open carry advocate I'd probably open carry if the attitude is similar to here. Just don't want to be bothered alot on vacation, If local LEO's are cool, I don't have a problem with people that are uneducated on the subject.
"No state shall convert a liberty to a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor.- Murdock vs Pennsylvania 319 US 105
...If the state converts a right into a privelege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right... with impunity.
- Shuttleworth vs City of Birmingham, Alabama 317 US 262
Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.
- Miranda vs Arizona 384 US 436
Thanks for the info. Looks like the only downside to this trip will be not seeing a hockey game while in town.
I don't remember reading about any negative encounters in Livingston County (Howell, Brighton). I've been OCing in Ingham County for 18 months and haven't had a single negative encounter.
"If we lose freedom here, there's no place to escape to."
"Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views." – William F. Buckley
"...go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." – Samuel Adams
The most important lesson I have learned from my time in the freedom movement and further studying it is that trying to create an organization without preventing the issues caused by narcissistic sociopaths and democracy is a lot like heading to sea in a sieve. It'll never work.
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.
Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.
"Though defensive violence will always be a 'sad necessity' in the eyes of men of principle, it would be still more unfortunate if wrongdoers should dominate just men." -Saint Augustine
