    9/18 SHORT NOTICE: Ann Arbor--County Meeting

    UPDATE from MOC: CANCELLED

    Saw my email alert from MOC. I'll be there. Anyone want to ride along from Novi or along the way?

    Washtenaw County Administration Building, Board Room
    220 N. Main Street
    Ann Arbor, Michigan

    Michigan Open Carry Inc., an advocacy group based in Lansing, is encouraging people who live near Ann Arbor to attend the Sept. 18, 2013 meeting of the Washtenaw County board of commissioners and protest a resolution that asks state legislators to repeal Michigan’s version of a “stand your ground” law.

    Responding to an MOC communication, several gun owners including myself appeared at last night's Commission meeting. Most of us spoke against the t.urd that is their drafted resolution calling for "Stand Your Ground" repeal. A couple of speakers on our side didn't appear to be affiliated with us.

    I think one person voiced support for the resolution. One.
