    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    "Though defensive violence will always be a 'sad necessity' in the eyes of men of principle, it would be still more unfortunate if wrongdoers should dominate just men." -Saint Augustine

    sounds fun!
    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 hope people before or after the picnic take a walk through art prize so people can see that gun owners are law abiding, good people. The picnics are fun but much more awareness would be garnered if people do take in Art Prize while practicing "lawful open carry (or concealed carry w/ license) of a handgun." though what difference the concealed carry would have on the masses I don't really know.

    mlive disgusts me. [mlive thinking] Lets link to story's that imply that a guy watching a soccer game broke the law but use the headline "Open-carry picnic brings 200 people, including children, to Riverside Park". Then just show unflattering pictures of people with their mouths open.[/]
    The news media plays politics more than the politicians do.
