    MOC Open Carry Seminar Jan 14th, 2012

    Michigan Open Carry would like to invite you to attend our Open Carry seminar on Saturday January 14th 2012 from 5pm - 7pm. The seminar will follow an Open Carry lunch at Sir Pizza beginning at 2pm. Sir Pizza is a local pizza shop that is welcoming us and supporting our right to bear arms, I spoke with them and they are excited to have us. They are actually going to be opening a few hours early this day to allow us to meet our time schedule. Following the lunch will be the Open Carry seminar, this seminar will discuss the certain laws that you should know when you open carry as well as additional information that will benefit you while open carrying. If you open carry and would like to brush up on the current laws and procedures while exercising your right, or are new to open carry and are looking for information, this seminar can help you. If you have someone that you know who is interested or may be interested in open carrying feel free to bring them along as this will answer some questions they may be having and will be a great start to exercising their right!

    The OC Lunch will be held at:

    Sir Pizza
    198 Vale St
    Battle Creek, MI 49037

    Saturday January 14th 2012
    2pm-5pm



    The seminar will be held at:

    Freedom Firearms
    539 Capital Ave SW
    Battle Creek, MI 49015

    Saturday January 14th 2012
    5pm-7pm.

    If you have any questions please feel to contact myself or email swregion@miopencarry.org.

    The worst weapon is the human mind, its created and done things far worse than a gun can, has, or ever will. Its the human mind that tells the gun what to do and animates the inanimate object.

    With all these gun control laws in place I have yet to find a single one that has saved someones life, but I can find hundreds of stories where a gun has.

    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    Just FYI to anyone coming to the lunch portion before the seminar. The owner of the restaurant was gracious enough to open 2 hours early to accomodate us OCers, so as many of you that can be there for the 2 oclock start time the better.

    So it's on the corner of Vale and Columbia? But I'll find it. See you there.

    That is correct. Its a large white building and they do have a rather large sign up so its easy to identify their location once youre near it. The face of the building is on the columbia side.

    Yup it was a great seminar turnout! Would have been 23 though if not for the fact that Adam and I OCed at Starbucks beforehand and had a couple ask a few questions. That led to an invitation to the seminar and thus 25 people!

    You see if you OC people ask questions.... if you CC not so much

    I was quite happy with both the lunch and the seminar, thanks to those that came out!

    Joel at Freedom Firearms was very pleased with the turnout and the information that was given during the seminar. He said he would be happy to see more in the future. I'm thinking we could have another one in March.

    I would think March is a great idea!
