    Note: the article appeared to miss acouple of oddities in Michigan law, such as requiring a concealed lciense to carry in hospitals but then requiring open carry there. But enjoy - hoepfully somebody from Michigan Open Carry, Inc. will let the reporter know

    Jason Baker, co-owner of MICPL.net, which is a Howell-based business providing defensive firearms instruction, said if he sees individuals walking down the street with a firearm on their hip, he assumes they are law-abiding citizens.

    "Criminals are more than likely to try to hide it than carry it openly, because they don't want to take a chance of getting stopped," he said.

    Proponents of open carry say their weapon is merely protection.

    "I think it's a deterrent," Jeffs said. "People see it and are less likely to pick you out for a crime."

    Cool article. TheSzerdi's incident was mentioned, which was good to see in a public paper.

    Security at Harper Hospital in Detroit told me today that no one can be armed in the building with or without a CPL. Someone needs to write them a letter also

    Well, even thoughit wasn't a total bad spin for us the problem I stillsee is that Undersheriff Murphy cautions everyone that the person o/c ing may be mental or have ill intent and that all citizens should be concerned!

    We should have another in a few months and see if the Undersheriff, now having made a statement, would be willing to attend and further explain his position.

    Murphy has been known for his off the wall and often wrong statements in the past.

    He is just resorting to typical liberal personal attacks. He made several comments about the picture of you with the gun and then some how came to the conclusion that I was you

    If it's private property, it's no ones call but the owners.
    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.
