All your facts are correct. No problems anymore in MGM. That has been taken care of by MPD staff instructing their officers on the legality of OC.
Just carry as you desire and enjoy yourself.
Cases in which OC's were arrested for Disorderly are both on appeal to a real court. Municipal courts in Alabama are a political appointed joke, a disgrace to the justice system and a disgusting way for those who put their trust in a fair court system to be treated. I have nothing but contempt for the municipal courts. Local governments hire starving, poor excuses for human being lawyers for $90 an hour to prosecute innocent people for political reasons and to stack the system against successful civil suits. One of the albatrosses that keep Alabama the target of SPLC lawsuits and perpetually held in poor regard by much of the nation.
Please do try to come to the next event which I believe is to be held in Prattville, just adjacent to MGM.
