In the '70's I was carrying an M16 and putting my knees in the breeze on Uncle Sammie's dime, so my memory goes pretty far back.
As Doug Huffman has already mentioned, ALL you hav done is relate something from your distant memory
. Either post a citation from state law, or withdraw your statement as being factual.
Unfortunately memory is sometimes all you have for reference. This event happeded to the best of my recolectionin the fall of 1971-2 during rabbit season, before the internet, when most records were kept on micro film or in a big cabinet, and was never to the best of my knowledge ever convereted to a file that I know how to find and post a link to.
But the Battle Creek City police did arrest a guy for entering a business with a closed bottom holster citeing the reason to be CC WO a permit, the story wasin a local rag called the Enquire N News.
Back then it was not too unsual for someone that had been hunting to go into a place like a restarant during hunting season with all your guns in tow, (they still do this in the upper part of the state) the guy only had a .22 revolver and had claimed to have been out hunting previously.
Heck things were so loose back then I built a gun (flint lock pistol) in HS shop class, N got a good grade on it too. Still have it in the gun safe but I cannot give you a link to that either.
The DNR had not gotten as Natzi as they are now, and it was small game season. This story started quite a discussion at the "Marine Gun Shop" were I hung out. No I do not remember reading how the trial came out. Even back then carrying a gun into a store may have been front page news but the part wheretheywere deemed inocentwas usually burried someplace way back in the paper.
I will tell you what if you cansteerme to a link where I can search forthis story, that was written up before they started putting the stuff on a big HD tied to a viewable network like they do today I will spend some time looking for it, but even our local Library does not have the old new stories avilable online if you wantthem you still have to go through a miciro, and ask the attendent to make you a hard copy once found.
So untill then I guess just like your claim of "carrying an M16 and putting my knees in the breeze on Uncle Sammie's dime,"
without you posting a valid link you never did it... after all it is just your memory you are quoting.
