    More than 20 gun-rights supporters attend 'open-carry' gathering in Vandercook Lake

    Hamburgers, hot dogs and baked beans weren’t the only items on hand at a Sunday afternoon picnic in Vandercook Lake.

    The rainy weather didn’t prevent more than 20 gun-rights supporters from gathering in Vandercook Lake County Park for an “open-carry” gathering.

    The picnic was sponsored by the nonprofit organization Michigan Open Carry. Organizers said they aimed to educate people of the legality of openly carrying a handgun in Michigan. A similar event was last summer at Sparks Foundation County Park.

    “I believe any gun control law is unconstitutional,” said Jackson resident and Michigan Open Carry member Gordon Cannon, who carried a 9 mm handgun.

    “I carry it to protect my children ... We’re not just a bunch of hicks and rednecks.”

    In Michigan, any person over age 18 without a criminal record may openly carry a registered firearm while holstered in most public places.

    . . .

    Michigan is one of 44 states that allow open carrying of a handgun, while the practice has been long banned in the other six states.

    Good article. I posted some correct information in the comments section to counteract some of the incorrect information being given there.
