    I just received this from Dave STevens in Barry County MI and thought I'd pass it on.
    I'll be there with a good attitude and a S&W in 40 caliber.
    Hope to see others from this forum there as well.

    God bless

    Press Release – For Immediate Distribution

    In response to the Police Chief of Hastings, Chief Sarver, law-abiding
    citizens will be walking down Main Street in Hastings open carrying.
    Chief Sarver in response to a letter to the editor responded by saying it was
    brandishing, a misdemeanor. He failed to say that the Michigan Attorney
    General’s office wrote him telling him that open carry is not against the law. We are asking anyone who is interested in furthering their Second
    Amendment rights to join us on Thursday, July 24th at 4 PM. We will be
    meeting at Richie's Coffee Shop (146 W. State Street, Hastings, MI 49058).
    An attorney that supports your right to keep and bear arms will be joining us.

    It is important to note that this is a peaceful demonstration of our constitutional rights and everyone must be on their best behavior. All well mannered, law-abiding citizens are welcome to join us. Please RSVP if you can. Please do not dress like a paramilitary organization. Wear ordinary clothing that fits in well with the general public.

    If you have any questions you can contact me at dstevens@iserv.net.

    I would LOVE to attend. It is almost a 3 hour trip each way for me. After the fuel bill that came with the 6 hour round trip for the Grand Rapids meet, i just simply cannot attend. UNLESS some want to carpool.....

    SO if anyone plans on going, and wants to carpool hit me up.

    I would like to attend, but, the Grand Rapids $100 fuel bill wiped me out for awhile.

    I'm not going to be able to make it either, as I already have plans. Disappointing too, since it's not that far from me.

    EACH WAY!

    274.6miles / 27MPG = 10.17 gallons

    10.17 gallons X around $4.00 per gallon = $40.68 in gas

    And 4 hours and 6 min's drive time


    Total.

    ~~~~Simple math~~~~

    If I keep my foot out of the gas I can get better mileage though

    Sorry, posted this on another thread earlier. There's a duplicate.

    I've a change in plans, and right now things are kind of "up in the air".

    If anyone is going down to this and would like to have a rider along who is willing to share gas money, let me know.

    Just got back. Pleasure finally meeting Venator and dougwg. Someone said that there were about 40 people showed up, and I'd say that is about right. I had the opportunity to talk to one of the main guys there, and I asked him if there was any local group, or org (noticing the good turnout on short notice). He said there wasn't really anything organized, but that people learned of it through word of mouth and the net. He also added that Barry County is a very strong gun community.

    I think most of those people had never even heard of us before this week. That's changed.

    Am Glad that the word is getting out to the population at large, am sorry that the very positive news had to put a negative spin at the end.

    IIRC, there's a video embedded? I was going to add this comment in my last post but my computer hiccuped.

    I enjoyed it very much. Now I really want my own weapon, I had to borrow a replica black powder pistol from my hubby.
