    Just some info from the SAM website. The march is about 0.8 miles. But you can just meet up at the Capitol as well.

    What: A peaceful gathering to demonstrate the political strength of Michigan's legal gun owners and Second Amendment advocates

    When: Wednesday, March 20th, 2013 starting at 9:30 a.m.

    Where: Starts at the corner of Michigan and Pennsylvania in Lansing (or if you prefer, just go directly to the Capitol Building)

    The Details:

    Michigan's Second Amendment March will be held on Wednesday, March 20 at Michigan's Capitol. The march will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a sidewalk procession from the corner of Michigan and Pennsylvania to the Capitol.

    From 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. people will meet with their state representatives. Musical entertainment and pro-gun speakers will take the stage from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. From 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. people will meet with their state senators.

    The Michigan Legislature is in session that day. We'll be showing them the political strength of Michigan's legal gun owners. The march is being organized by Skip Coryell's Second Amendment March and jointly promoted and funded by the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners, Michigan Open Carry, Michigan Gun Owners and Michigan Students for Concealed Carry.

    I understand why it's on a Wednesday so that the legislature will be in session, but seems like a lot of people won't be able to make it since it's a work day for most.

    I will be taking a vacation day as well. While taking a day off to grill brats, drink beer, and sit around scratching my stones is always nice and relaxing, it is important every once in a while to take a day off if need be to visibly demonstrate my support for RKBA to politicians face-to-face.

    Got the day off and definitely looking forward to it. Not sure if I'm driving or not if I am I'd have no problem car pooling for people around Roseville.

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

    Mark your schedules! Reserve the day off work! Michigan's Second Amendment March will be held on Wednesday, March 20 at Michigan's Capitol. We anticipate several thousand gun owners will be at the march. The march will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a sidewalk procession from the corner of Michigan and Pennsylvania to the Capitol. From 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., people will meet with their state representatives. Musical entertainment and pro-gun speakers will take the stage from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. From 1 p.m. until 2 p.m., people will meet with their state senators. The Michigan Legislature is in session that day. We'll be showing them the political strength of Michigan's legal gun owners. The march is being organized by Skip Coryell's Second Amendment March and jointly promoted and funded by the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners, Michigan Open Carry, Michigan Gun Owners and Michigan Students for Concealed Carry.

    A volunteer form is now up and running on the home page at Second Amendment March Volunteer Form. If you are interested in assisting at the march, please use the form on that page to sign up

    Thanks for the email address. Sent an email to David.

    Folks, I'll be going to the March 20th rally in Lansing. I'll have room for up to 4 passengers. My route will be starting from West Bloomfield, south on MI-5, then west on I-96. PM me if you need a ride and can get close to that route to get picked up.

    Second Amendment rally March 20th Lansing Mi Capital

    I live one mile south of the Capitol along MLK. I'll be proceeding up MLK to 496 to the Pennsylvania Ave exit. I'll take Pennsylvania Ave up to Michigan Ave.

    If anyone along my route would like a ride, they can PM me. I'm open to taking an alternate route: perhaps Mount Hope over to Pennsylvania and up to Michigan from there...

    ...or we could ride CATA there, if it weren't for that pesky OC ban...oh...wait....

    Just a reminder if you can't make it but want to support us, make a donation. It's costing us several thousand dollars to pay for all the expenses associated with the rally. To date we have had only 3 donations. That's a little sad.

    Although I was planning to take Thursday, the 21st, off for the Cabela's Opening in Grandville, I guess if I have only one day to take off... this will be it. I plan to be there.

    I will be putting in for time off at work to make this event, I hope my boss lets me take the day off.

Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." -- Jefferson's "Commonplace Book," 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764

    I'm planning on being there. How do we identify each other? We need name tags with forum names.

    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
