    So in light of all the media attention that guns have been getting at the health care rallies. I'd hate to accused of jumping on a "new bandwagon" So what does everyone think of a t-shirt slogan of "Open carrying since before open carry was cool."

    I appreciate the concerns, because this could put a new spin on things, but I can't really see a reason to do that. How long you've been doing it is irrelevant. There is no seniority structure among open carriers.

    The only important thing is to always make sure that you represent gun owners well. At least that's my opinion.

    I didn't mean it as a seniority thing and as far as I'm concered somebody who stubles onto this site a year from now is more entitled to wear it. It more another statement to the media that there are people out there that have been doing this long before the current media attention and the "growing treand" they are so concered about.

    How about a shirt that says:

    "Dear Media,
    Stop freaking out, what I am doing is legal. Talking about me like I'm a criminal is not nice. So please just leave me alone, I'm not hurting anyone."

    My thoughts for a new tee-shirt would be something along the lines of ...

    " Open Carry of a Handgun

    (MOC logo or handgun silhouette)

    Been there, Done that

    You are looking at the Tee-shirt "

    But then I do have a dry sense of humor so maybe that wouldn't be such a good idea.

    I admit, the phrase is funny and inline with my type of humor. HOWEVER, I could see the media/anti's saying " SEE, THEY JUST DO IT BECAUSE IT'S COOL!! THEY JUST WANT ATTENTION!!! I think just OC'ing, going about your business and just plain being "normal" about it all is probly the best thing to do......still,....the shirt would be funny!

    I'd like one that just says real big on both sides "Yes, it is legal to carry a gun openly in Michigan". Maybe with a picture, maybe not. Just something simple to get the message across to those who might not know it.

    Considering some of the things that are printed on T-shirts that people wear..

    "My gun is a lot less offensive than your t-shirt"

    I like "this is legal" with a big arrow pointing towards my holster..

    Not funny or a zinger like some of the above ones.. but still.

    Maybe thats too blunt...

    How about:

    If more people did this
    maybe you wouldn't
    be so surprised.

    or

    Just think, a criminal
    won't openly carry theirs!

    I have been getting some requests for the DID YOU KNOW shirts. I will be in contact with the supplier of this shirt and check on pricing. Would anyone be interested in buy this shirt?

    Also you can buy shirts with the MOC logo on it at our website http://www.miopencarry.org. Go to the merchandise link and order through cafe press.
