    You are going to need to find a way to get this moved to another date if it is today... This is EXTREMELY short notice.... I LIVE 4 to 5 hours away.... so do others.... so this is short sided and not going to happen unless you live in lansing....

    I have to agree. He called me to see if I could make it, but I have to go to class soon. Even then, I would still feel uncomfortable representing OC (yes I said OC not MOC) in an on-camera interview. My public speaking skills need some work, as well as my ability to think about an appropriate answer thoroughly on the spot.

    Please, get this rescheduled to a later date!

    They obviously want the story, so they should be willing to postpone.

    I see serious problems with just anyone going on a tv interview unplanned & representing MOC inc without permission. Im not on the board but what im seeing here is extremely wrong. My recommendation is to cease an dissist before you get yourself in big trouble!

    Even if you go there and don't technically represent MOC, people will still see it the same way.

    I have to agree that you should not do this, and reschedule it. Other people need to be there that are well versed on the subject to make sure things aren't miscontrued. It has the potential to give OC a "black eye".

    I've done on-camera interviews before, 4 times, and twice with newspapers.

    It's not easy.

    We need someone that either represents MOC, or has enough experience to make the national OC movement not look like they don't know what they're doing.

    Knowing your stuff, and knowing your stuff in front of a camera are two different things.

    Kimberguy should be one to do it. Hell, is on a radio show. Not to mention the fact that the topic of the AR is going to obviously come into question, and since it was him that did it he should be there.

    On it.

    He said the reporters are not answering, but he's going to go up there and tell them it needs to be rescheduled and decline to talk to them at this time.

    they caught me while i was sleeping when they called,and i said we could do it.

    however,ive decided not to.

    cannot get ahold of them via phone,so im going to go up there and state that i will not do an interview at this time,reschedule so that brian or somebody else can handle it.

    as for the personal attacks,you dont know me,you dont know what laws i do and do not know,nor how well i know them.and without that information i believe it would be best to hold your tongue on that matter.

    also,it was as an individual,not as MOC,i stated i would not represent MOC.

    so just forget previous discussion,we have enough drama,and i apologize for anything i may have started.


    who,in the lansing area WOULD be interested in said interview at a later date?

    Just let them know that you will be in contact with them (or somebody from MOC will be if they decide to) as far as setting up an interview at a later date. Don't set anything in stone at this time.

    alright here is what went down.

    we contacted brian,whom gave some quotes for the story,and stated that i could do the interview if i wished,as an individual and not a member or spokesperson for MOC.

    i did.however,i did it as a bystander and only answered answers i feel a bystander would be asked,and answered them the same way.also, i openly stated i was not an open carrier.

    i feel i did it in a way that will not make things negative on us,and if it does,i will leave MOC and OCDO so that i will keep any and all blame on me and away from everybody else,if members wish me to do so.


    it will be on wilx channel 10 and should be aired for both news programs tonight,i will be out of town,and would appreciate if somebody recorded it.

    Your words indicate you know your weaknesses. That in itself tells me you likely did just fine. Thank you.

    And people are wondering why there is a problem with folks leaving MOC and the forum? Flame me for that observation if you wish.........

    By the way I've met lil_freak_66 and, although he has the "gung ho" attitude of any young person (I vaguely remember feeling that full of energy way back ... uhhh.. I forget when), he is a lot more informed and has a measure of maturity that will serve him well.

    And, sad to say, I've met many folks much older in years than lil_freak_66 that acted much younger than him.
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.
