50 State Open Carry Demonstration Feb. 8th; Getting Out The Word

On February 8th 2013, in accordance with state law and the 2nd Amendment, there will be peaceful Open Carry demonstrations taking on the Capitol steps of all 50 states. In Michigan a team of volunteers is organizing the event, and this writer will be speaking in support of the Constitution, exercising my 1st Amendment right to free speech in defense of the 2nd Amendment.

In this episode of The Truth Is Viral, I take you through the streets of Alpena Michigan as I go door-to-door to businesses in the downtown area; openly carrying a sidearm in accordance with Michigan law.

Rather than just surprise local law enforcement with my sudden appearance as some reporters have done, I decided to speak with the Michigan State Patrol, the Alpena County Sheriff's Office, and the City of Alpena Police Department, letting them know of my intentions beforehand.

As a result of my conversations with local LEOs, I was not only told that it was my right to walk around town openly carrying a firearm, but I was encouraged to do so. I was even offered tips on where I could place my flyers, and informed that I needed a permit to solicit from the city. The Alpena City Police Department especially went out of their way to make my little one man protest a success; in accordance with Federal, State, and Local laws.

Please share this video everywhere you can. I can't do this by myself.

Semper Fi,
Bobby

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

I couldn't get

CCW here in CA. Let alone open carry. Feinstein is horrible.

I was laughed at even though I almost got killed. I was literally laughed at.

I don't like guns. But I would like a CCW permit. I would never use it, but it would be nice to have and I do have a gun safe where I store my valuables. I don't own any guns at home.

But look at a city like Oakland. If CCW were allowed I would bet gun violence would go down 75%. It's bullcrap. Gun control leaves the weapons in the hands of criminals. In oakland I bet if CCW were allowed I would wager the deaths go down to 25 a year instead of 100.

My old boss from Atlanta GA always rode with a gun right next to him. No carjacking or violent crime.

Again, I don't like any guns (other than against tyrants) or nukes or any other weapon, but they are a necessary evil. And if those gang bangers or violent criminals knew the public was armed, they wouldn't pull any BS.

Sounds

like a good plan. On a similar note, I hope the "Guns Across America" rallies went well today...

In Illinois

it is illegal to open carry and in Hawaii it is illegal to even possess a sidearm. So how can all 50 states be involved?

So no Gov't workers carry or possess sidearms in Hawaii? I don't believe you.

I was talking about

civilian possession, do gun grabbers talk about taking away the police's sidearms? No, so why would my comment be directed at them? Some common sense goes a long way.

Sorry I didn't mean to not use 'common sense'.

It just bugs me that taxfeeders always seem to be exempt from the 'laws' they force upon us peasants.

Sorry, I didn't mean to be

an ass ;) Those who gorge from the public trough write the laws, and they wouldn't write a law that didn't benefit them would they?
