    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

    Want to make Detroit safer? Fire the City Council and replace them with Republicans... Democrats are the reason Detroit has gone to hell as it is.
    Want to keep informed of Open Carry events in your area? Go to www.miopencarry.org/update

    I carry a gun because a Police Officer is too heavy.

    Uhm.... sadly, Ez - MI republicans are no shining example on how to get things done. Look they've had both state houses & the Governor for years now, what have they done in general, let alone gun / civil rights? Just saying...same old crap....different fly breed spreading it. Detroit is a lost cause.... but it's good for zombie movies.

    Man in Detroit who killed a carjacker and is free today because of Michigan's Self Defense Law.

    "If you're reviewing it, you're trying to make changes to it. That's what you're trying to do," he said.
