    Second Amendment Activist Day at State Capitol October 9th

    On October 9th MOC/MCRGO/MGO/SAM are once again sponsoring a gathering at the State Capitol. People will be urged to visit their legislators to express their views on a variety of second amendment issues.

    Tentative schedule as follows:

    9:30 AM - March proceeds from Pennsylvania Ave and Michigan Ave towards the Capitol
    10 AM-Noon - Meet with your State House members.
    Noon-2 PM - Meet with your State Senators.

    We look forward to seeing everyone again as we promote the right to keep and bear arms with our lawmakers.

    A Wednesday was chosen not because it will give the best turn out, but rather because lawmakers are actually in the building.

    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

    I'd be going but my place of employment requires more then one weeks notice to be approved for time off. Will be there in thought though.

    Ummm....how long have we know about this?

    Well, just as I said to people that couldn't make the BBQ in GR, it's now your responsibility to get two to attend in your place. 1 to replace you, and 1 for "punishment".

    Either way, make sure you contact your reps.

    The news media plays politics more than the politicians do.

    Looks like I won't be able to make it, I was held up by other engagements, and by the time I would get there it would already be wrapping up.

    Give them hell, and take lots of pictures, and video!
