    i plan on OC'ing to ours. In front of the Midland Court House. Though I do have a question. Dad thinks it's illegal to Carry (concealed or open)at demonstrations such as this. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Sorry for the hi-jack... ;-)

    I'll be there and I won't be OC or CCW


    I got there and changed my mind I did CCW.
    The use of force is a last resort. One aspect of violence is that it is unpredictable. Although your initial intention may be to use limited force, once you have engaged in violence the consequences are unpredictable. Violence always brings about unexpected results and almost always provokes retaliation.

    Some states do outlaw 'picketing' while in possession of a firearm; I could find no Michigan law that prohibits it, though. If you do something "illegal" while carrying however, it could be considered a violation of MCL750.226, "Firearm or dangerous weapon; carrying with unlawful intent". But as long as you are just picketing legally on public property, it should not be a problem.

    I will be OCing at the Lansing rally along with a few other MOC members. We are meeting near the Blair Statue on the east side of the Capitol. I will have our MOC banner on display so look for that.

    I OCd at Lansing yesterday and I even carried my biggest pistol just to make sure everyone could see it! :-) I OCd to lunch at Jimmy Johns afterwards too.

    I looked for you guys but in the brief moments I had free to wander, I couldn't find you. I did see Kimberguy in his bright blue shirt but both times I approached him to talk, he was swamped with folks asking about OC so I let him be. He was doing a far better work answering their questions than to talk to me.

    Good to hear from you Graydon. I know you have been busy with your new business. We did post a meeting place for OCers to meet on the east side of the Capitol by the Austin Blair statue. I would have liked to see you, the last time was the Burton picnic.

    Yes, I have been busy, but not too busy to at least try to do a small part to help the cause of defending our constitution. I tell everyone I meet about carrying both openly and concealed. My wife does too!

    I read about meeting by the big statue but I must have come too late or something because I didn't see anyone there either. That is OK though, I was with a really great group of folks who gathered as a result of the website I mentioned above.

    Graydon, if I'm not mistaken, you are the person I ran into last March or April in the Fenton Wal-Mart. You walked by the ammo counter as I was getting a fishing license, then I went looking for you. I think I was the only person in line that noticed you carrying... Looking forward to meeting you again.

    That could very well be. We live just outside of Fenton and as much as I dislike it, we shop at Wal-Mart occasionally. At least the ammo is US made! :-)

    Was I OCing that day or did you catch me printing while CCing?

    Let's get together some time.
