    Grand Rapids Open Carry/Concealed Carry

    A place for people from Grand Rapids and surrounding cities to come together and disscuss OC and CC on a much more local environment. This is just another way to become a group of proud gun owners and be heard while all having something in common.

    Check it out:

    Its been a couple of days since the last post, so I would like to bother you Grand Rapids locals again in a nice friendly way! There has not been increase with membership for the Grand Rapids Open Carry/Concealed Carry group on facebook. With all this madness happing on MOC, we need to stick together and keep showing the public that we are just trying to educate them with guns. Everyone needs to break down the big group of OC/CC members and make a local type statement to show the public on a personal level guns are ok! So please consider joining if you are a local to Grand Rapids or surrounding cities. Feel free to post whatever is on your mindof the OC/CC world. Thank You! I hope to see you there soon!

    I havent bothered you guys and gals in a few weeks. We are up to 13 new members for the Grand Rapids Open Carry/Concealed Carry. Please, please come join this facebook group if you have facebook and are located in Grand Rapids or the surrounding cities. If we increase our membership numbers, we can use this group as a tool to exercise our 2nd Amendment on a local level. I hope that we can have people create more local groups and make the public know of guns being a positive thing in their community. If you know family and friends who would be a positive addition to the group please invite them as well. I hope to see you all there! Thank you!

    I'm interested but not sure I want all my FB friends to know I carry a gun. Will you post events on here too?

    Hey neighbor,

    I heard about OC from the Defensive Carry website. There really is no Michigan group on there so I was just looking around.

    FB is an abbreviation for Facebook. I am reluctant to have everyone on facebook that I am connected to know I concealed carry a weapon. Some are just not there yet.. and some I work with. We have a "no weapons" policy at my office and I don't need folks wondering about me.

    I have not seen you around town but we just moved here from Houston last summer. I've only seen one other guy open carry and that was a couple weeks ago at the Grandville Meijers.

    Do you get many questions?

    I grew up in Grand Rapids but we really enjoy living out this way. I'll keep an eye out.

    I dont get alot of questions just mainly looks and points. I have had one negitive encounter at the Wayland park behind the cop shop. The guy didnt like the gun around kids, I guess he thinks that the bad guys wont bother kids or be in a park. That might have been me you seen at Mijers, I havent sen anyone else carrying except when I go to meet and eats. I hopefully will be going to the meet and in in Kzoo march 13th, I'm so busy all the time I sometimes plan on going but dont make it. Hopefully we can get something going around this area. Maybe see you around some time, carry on!

    Welcome to OC, before you start OCing I would advise you to study the laws, just to keep you out of trouble. With your cpl it makes ocing alot easyer, I have mine also, and carry everyware. If you look down the posts you will come across ziggyziggyzoo who designed a card with no carry places that maybe a quick place to learn, and a quick reminder.Again welcome and carryon!

    If I join can I exercise my Article I, Section 6 rights too?
    Someone who can't be trusted to walk free in public with a firearm shouldn't be walking around free.

    you can't.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."
