    Is anyone going to the March at the Capitol January 19?

    It's two miles away for me. I'll be there on a personal capacity.
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    I'll be at the Feb 9th one.
    Person in Home Depot: "Do you really think you need that?"
    Me: "I hope not. But then again, I didn't need my seatbelt on the way here either."

    ...

    Some on Facebook are claiming you cannot carry a weapon at the Capitol building due to it being a FEDERAL building. Can someone post some pictures of the last couple events held there.
    I tried finding it in the posts and on google but none of the news articles came up.

    Sir I agree it was an impromptu picture that has huge meaning.

    I believe Raggs and I will be there.
    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    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
