Michigan Open Carry took part in two Fourth of July parades on Independence day in 2016. Michigan Open Carry has been one of the most active and successful Second Amendment support groups in the nation. It is simple acts such as these that show public support for Second Amendment rights. Here is a report from Johnny Roehrig, Vice President of Michigan Open Carry, Inc. From Michigan Open Carry facebook page:
Yesterday, Michigan Open Carry, Inc. took part in two Independence Day Parades!! One being in Cohactah Twp. and the other in Fowlerville.We are seeing more and more of these events all across the nation. Open carryis legal in 45 states. It is likely that Florida and South Carolina will become open carry states soon. That will leave only the three centers of anti-Second Amendment money and organization without open carr; California, Illinois, and New York City. Washington D.C. is not a state, but it should be dishonorable mention.
These parades are a great venue for us to "kill a few birds with one stone." Meaning, it allows us the opportunity to honor Independence Day, to honor those Men and Women who have died fighting, who are actively fighting or who have returned home from fighting for our rights. It gives us the opportunity to meet with the public and put a face to the name. It gets our Organization's name out there and we can pass out literature.
There is really nothing to lose and everything to gain from attending events like these.
A Special Thank You to Cohactah Twp. and Fowlerville for having us out and to our Southeast Region Coordinators for setting these up. Also, Thank You to those volunteers who walked with us. We can't do this without you!
