    How am I supposed to believe that sensible gun laws can be drafted by senseless people?

    By our standards they can't. By their standards they are intellectual giants, after all they supported their Lord and King, Obama a second time around. Which also kept Joe "Illegal shotgun use" Biden in office.

    Any thoughts on a meeting area. I'm going to be in the library parking lot by 11:45. I'll walk over at noon with whoever is with me.

    Thoughts?

    If we were to park in front of the court house, we could walk to a pavilion located right by the parking lot. They have a grill and if someone brought charcoal, others could bring hamburgers, hot dogs, etc.....

    The rally is noon to 1pm.
    The public is invited to a “Rally for Greater Gun Safety” to be held from noon to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Waterford Township Civic Center, 5200 Civic Center Drive, in Waterford.

    Unfortunately I don't know which building the court house is (looking at satellite view in google), and I'm worried that there may be issues with the court house parking lot (for a non cpl holder), however nothing specific comes to mind. I just don't have the time right now to do the research.

    Just pitching an idea. Non-cpl holders can carry openly in the parking lot, no one can carry in the building. That and it is on a Saturday, and the court house will be closed. The court house is the building located right off Crescent Lake Road.

    Library and court house are very close to each other. There are many buildings there and they are all very close. The Library parking lot is pretty small and is usually busy so the court house sounds fine!

    We need to park together and walk over to the library. There is more parking at the court house anyways. Why are you so worried about parking there?

    I meant an issue with space. I'm not worried about parking at the court house, I'm worried about people showing up to the library and not finding that guy that said he would be there. I put out the library location in a few places before you mentioned the court house. I have added a mention of the court house, but I don't want to leave people hanging that might not notice the change.

    What time do you plan on showing up at the court house? I'll see what I can do to further point things over there.

    (Edit) If I'm reasonably certain that I will not leave anyone hanging, I will see you at the court house.

    I plan on being there at 11:45, and I guess with as many people that are planning on showing up for and against the anti-gun protest on top of people just there to use the library we would park somewhere else. I just know there is really limited parking at the library. I was simply trying to come up with a spot where we could park together.

    Re: Anti-gun rally in Waterford, MI

    What a sad place we have become (USA). When people are applauded for trying to take others rights away. Wonder if a rally to stop free speech or protection against unreasonable search & seizure would draw any concern from the sleepy US citizenry?

    Let's make a new ban so we can use government guns to cause violence and other hardships on non violent gun owners!

    And these statists think they are trying to prevent violence. What morons.

    My job, as usual, will keep me away from this and the other things I want to do. I would be there if I could.
