Open Carry Potluck Picnic At Belle Isle - Sunday August 22nd, 2010

We've finally announced the details for this year's open carry event. We are having a potluck picnic on Belle Isle Park in Detroit on Sunday, August 22nd, 2010. We will be at Shed #10 and the festivities will start in earnest at 10am.

If you're new to the concept of open carry, here are a few tidbits:

In Michigan, you can legally carry a pistol in a holster without a permit, as long as the gun is registered to you.

You can't wear a holstered pistol in a vehicle without a Concealed Pistol License. Otherwise, you'd have to transport it unloaded, encased, separated from ammunition, and placed in your trunk.

Wearing a holstered handgun is not brandishing.

Belle Isle Park is NOT a Pistol-FREE Zone.

You can't carry or possess a firearm if you are legally barred (e.g. felony or DV conviction, under 18 years of age, and etc.)

Also, it probably "goes without saying" but I'm going to say it anyway:

1. Guns and alcohol don't mix.
2. Keep your firearm holstered.

Things To Bring
1. Food
2. Chairs
3. Card Tables

I'm anticipating a great turn-out. Let's have a great event and exercise our right to keep and bear arms.
