MI: Gun rights activists host open-carry picnic along Detroit riverfront

Detroit— Gun rights activists hosted an open-carry picnic Saturday at Milliken State Park along the riverfront to stress the importance of carrying firearms for self-defense.

“It’s just like any other picnic. The only thing that separates us is that the vast majority of us are open carrying our firearms,” said Patrick Dunbar, the southeast regional coordinator for Michigan Open Carry.

Around 85 men, women and children attended the picnic at the state park along the river walk. Most were carrying holstered pistols at their hips while they enjoyed a grilled hot dog lunch and pop.
