LAID is a gun rights advocacy organization that promotes lawful firearms ownership which includes the practice of "open carrying" of a firearm on your person. In Michigan, it is completely legal for a person 18 years of age to display a registered pistol (in his name) in a completely visible holster without a special permit, as long as he does not venture into a state enumerated pistol-free zone.

One interesting feature of Michigan law is that persons with a Concealed Pistol License (CCW/CPL) can legally open carry in a pistol-free zone, as long the owner doesn't mind. The establishment where we are dining doesn't have a liquor license, so it is a non-issue for attendees who did not have a CPL. Furthermore, we have express permission from the owner to dine there while visibly armed.

See you there!

We're going to a safe and great time.
