    my reply on one of the articles

    he pulled his team because of a holster he wasn't sure had a pistol in it? Was WMC losing the game and he thought what the heck, get home early for a change?

    "It was not known if the fan returned with the gun, however, a holster was seen on his right side when he did return. His shirt was tucked inside his pants on the right side and the holster was clearly visible. Hulings said he saw the holster, wasn’t sure if the gun was still inside so he immediately pulled his team off the field."
    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

    someone replied to smellslikemichigan's post with a statement that open carriers are 'obnoxious' and have 'personal agendas'

If the only legal way to wear a seatbelt on the freeway was that it had to be covered in glued-on facsimile penises, would you still do it? If you did, since it was legally mandated, would it be fair to say that you had an obnoxious personal agenda because of it?

    Yep I have a personal agenda...it is called living, keeping my family living, not being a victim. I could go on with my adgenda but that would make me obnoxious.

    Ok we know why this happened....

    "Pistol-carrying fan leads to forfeit of soccer game between Western Michigan Christian and Hudsonville Freedom Christian
    "
    In the article title it is as plane as day...only one school believes in "FREEDOM".

    1st amendment right ? Also I didn't know sheep played soccer. They should be proud of themselves for weakening this country.

    Saw this over on reddit first before I came here to find this thread. Man, folks over on reddit sure don't seem to like open carry.
