    It will take a major event to keep me from this. All I can say is that I am very glad this recent activity was not indeed directed toward the SMVM. If it had, and indeed had been done so unconstitutionally, what exactly would we have done? Lack of coordination creates confusion. Confusion can be deadly. I realized yesterday just how much I do not know.

    I would agree with this. I of course have heard many things over the years about the MI Militia... most not that good. However I am beginning to realize that I have been misled.
    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."

    You are just now beginning to realize that you may have been misled?

    What else do you think you may have been misled about?

    There doesn't seem to be any indication of who is planning on attending the event in the link you provided.

    As the official MOC Events Coordinator, do you have any other pertinent information as to who may be attending?

    I'm hoping to go, but it depends on a few things. Part of my problem is I work 3rd shift, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights. This generally interferes with weekend activities of this sort. But I might make it. I'm just not sure at this point.

    Joe, Don't let the fact that some have bashed this event from your decision to attend. Picnics are always fun, and with guns they are all the better.

    There doesn't seem to be any indication of who is planning on attending the event in the link you provided. Correct, that's why it isn't posted at MOC.

    As the official MOC Events Coordinator, do you have any other pertinent information as to who may be attending? No.
    I didn't bother posting the event due to the fact the thread went four pages of why can't we OC at the range, instead of, who's going and who is not. No big deal, you want it posted, just let me know in the next day or so.

    Given that the SMVM is the actual host, perhaps you should see if they have a sign-up or confirmation on their website. If so you could post an event thread ideally both here and on www.miopencarry.org with a link. Let us know!

    No, just the MSP, the FBI, and maybe ATF.

    I posted the event on MOC yesterday. The SMVM advertisement of their picnic is embedded.

    Poll on the newspaper Livingston County Press- "Does open carry bother you?"
