GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Grand Rapids has become ground zero for the open-carry debate in Michigan in part because of the differing mindsets of Mayor George Heartwell and the advocacy of Kentwood's Tom Lambert.
Quote
Lambert, the assistant Southwest Regional Coordinator of Michigan Open Carry Inc., is pushing for a strong showing of open-carry supporters at Tuesday's City Commission meeting.
Quote
“This isn’t just about reminding law enforcement that we are an important part of crime deterrence in our communities. This is also about making it as hard as possible for the elected elite in Grand Rapids to hide in their chambers behind armed security paid for by the people they represent.”

Tom, I did not know you live in Kentwood. Hopefully, maybe, someday we can meet and you can help me out in educating myself with OC. I live in the city and worry about what may happen when I get stopped by GRPD for the first time.

Hopefully you can go to the seminar today at Cabelas in Grandville at 2 pm.

I was hoping to go, but just read about it the other day and already made plans. I'm going to try and make it to the next seminar.
