    OC Picnic at Garfield Park in Grand Rapids 7/13.

    The weather is finally getting nicer and we are making our way into the great outdoors. Come join Michigan Open Carry, Inc for an open carry picnic at Garfield Park in Grand Rapids, this event is open to the public and you do not need to be a member to attend and the carry of a firearm openly or concealed is not required. As always children and family are welcomed.

    If you have never open carried before and were curious this is a great chance to experience it for the first time or to ask questions from people who have plenty of experience doing it. Members of Michigan Open Carry, Inc leadership will be in attendance to answer any questions that you have.

    There is a disc golf course located at the park so if you disc golf bring your discs and play a few rounds!

    Details are as follows:

    When: Sunday July, 13 2014
    Where: Garfield Park 334 Burton St SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49507 (parking is on Burton St.)
    Time: 11am-3pm

    If you have any questions feel free to email events@miopencarry.org
    The worst weapon is the human mind, its created and done things far worse than a gun can, has, or ever will. Its the human mind that tells the gun what to do and animates the inanimate object.

    With all these gun control laws in place I have yet to find a single one that has saved someones life, but I can find hundreds of stories where a gun has.

    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    I am planning on being there, the better half has to work though.
    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

    good turnout

    Despite the rocky start there was a good turnout for the picnic. The picture doesn't have everyoe in it.
