    The two men who claimed Marysville police harassed them for openly carrying handguns said they plan to return to the city for a picnic -- with friends.









    What will be different about this picnic and most others is that many of the people there will have holsters and handguns at their waists.

    Rob Harris, 36, of Eastpointe, and Scott Webb, 31, a former Marysville resident, said they plan to meet at Marysville City Park from 1 to 6 p.m. June 27 for a picnic.

    Harris said they are expecting quite a turnout -- between 30 and 50 people.

    "I'd imagine it will be a pretty big turnout," Harris said.

    Harris and Webb said earlier this month they were told they had to leave the city park during Marysville Days because they were openly carrying handguns, an action that is legal in Michigan.

    A recording of the confrontation between the two men and the police officer, Assistant Chief Ron Buckmaster, shows police threatened to arrest the men if they didn't leave.

    Police Chief Tim Buelow has said he sent out a memorandum to officers about how to treat open-carry situations.

    Buelow said he doesn't plan to do anything about the get-together Webb and Harris are planning.

    He said he has no problem with it "whatsoever."

    "It's not an issue," he said.

    So are the cops in Marysville doing all the comments or what? I have a hard time believeng that many people in one area are that ignorant. There is an article on mlive right now about a shooting in a park, possibly by a group of peopleand the citizens of marysvillestill don't understand why you need to carry in a park or carnival?

    Your BS detector is working well my friend.
