    Carry at the Air Show (Thunder Over Michigan) at Willow Run Saturday/Sunday?

    My oldest son and I will be going to the air show tomorrow. Does anyone know if the event is Carry friendly? Anyone else going?

    (no, I will NOT wear an ankle holster or sandals with socks)
    ;P

    The airport is owned and controlled by Wayne county. I think there is a thread about carry at this airshow from last year and the consensus is that carry is lawful.

    Dont carry there.

    I used to go to to school there, in orientation, they announced to all the students to leave your weed at home, and to not have any drinking in the parking lots because the entire airport was under federal control.

    They may have also told you that "if you masturbate you'll go blind!" How's that seeing eye dog and white cane working out for you?

    LMAO!

    Point is, many schools are happy to pass along mis-dis information.

    here is a link to last years conversation on the same topic. FWIW, i believe that it is lawful to possess firearms at the airshow and that even if they wanted to ban possession, they would be prohibited from doing so by mcl 123.1102.

    Also, the list of banned items does not specifically include firearms. My pistol is a tool, not a weapon.

    There is an e-mail conversation in the following thread where the airport staff agrees that carry at the airshow is OK, at least for anyone with a cpl. Also included rules about firearm possession at the airport.

    I am glad to see that I am wrong. Now the bad information should be removed from their site.

    The wife and i considered going to the air show today, but the $25 ticket price coupled with the high heat/humidity and the distance from home was enough to keep us away.

    Went to the air show, left gun in the car.

    It was BLAZING HOT! Wow. It was HOT. Some clouds rolled in when the Blue Angels started which gave a little relief. It was hot.
