    did it occur to anyone running the event that there is not one single Meijer store in the city of Detroit?

    I think that $40 cash will be more valuable than a $50 gift card to a store you can't get to.

    There is one under construction at the state fair grounds, or rather what used to be the state fair grounds.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    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.

    As a side note, thats kind of awesome. I miss the state fair but I also like being close as hell to Meijer.

    Though considering the area its in, I may still go to the one on Coolidge.

    Can someone bring an official looking arrow sign that reads "cash for guns" that can be placed a block or two away?

    I fear sellers may be funneled directly from the service drive into the church lot.

    No updates eh?

    There are rumors of a few poorly behaved public servants, also rumors of at least one arrest of a lawful oc'er.

    Guess they don't understand the 1A either? Go figure? Thugs with badges for the most part IMHO. I hope he sues them for violating his rights. They don't care I guess as they can just claim they're broke as usually and skirt paying the award.

    They couldn't lie to get their way. So then they try to scare you into leaving. When that doesn't work they issue BS sitations - bad cop 101 in all it's shame. Typical day in Detroit LE.
