    Maybe, it sounds like several thousand may attend. I believe they want you to open carry but no long guns. Weather is not going to cooperate, high in the mid 20's.

    Hey jwheels, I do believe that long guns are in fact ok. That is what the literature from MCRGO says.

    The MCRGO Facebook post today reads "we are asking people to please consider NOT carrying long guns. It is counter-productive to the political and public relations efforts of the event, not practical for self defense in an urban environment and involves safety issues with muzzle control not present with openly carrying a holstered pistol".

    I am hoping to make it. I am still working on finding a babysitter.
    I would rather die on my feet then live on my knees.

    Michigan's Second Amendment March
    Second Amendment March

    Mark your schedules! Reserve the day off work! Michigan's Second Amendment March will be held on Wednesday, March 20 at Michigan's Capitol. We anticipate several thousand gun owners will be at the march. The march will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a sidewalk procession from the corner of Michigan and Pennsylvania to the Capitol. From 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., people will meet with their state representatives. Musical entertainment and pro-gun speakers will take the stage from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. From 1 p.m. until 2 p.m., people will meet with their state senators. The Michigan Legislature is in session that day. We'll be showing them the political strength of Michigan's legal gun owners. The march is being organized by Skip Coryell's Second Amendment March and jointly promoted and funded by the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners, Michigan Open Carry, Michigan Gun Owners and Michigan Students for Concealed Carry.

    A volunteer form is now up and running on the home page at Second Amendment March Volunteer Form. If you are interested in assisting at the march, please use the form on that page to sign up.

    Sure Eagleks, It is a gun rally going to our capital to show our support of the Seconf Amendment...

    I'll be there with my carefully crafted sign. I don't open carry however.

    I don't want to start a flame war so please be polite, but I'm unable to find a definitive answer and wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction.
    I have a Rossi Ranch Hand that I'm interested in open carrying (not easy to conceal it if I wanted to). I have a sling on it and would like to carry it this way. It is far from being as intimidating or evil-looking as an AR or AK pistol, but it is legally a pistol. Can I do this in Michigan? The question seems most likely to lie in the definition of brandishing, but I'd like to know more before I go anywhere other than the woods with it slung over my shoulder or across my back. I'm thinking specifically of the march in Lansing tomorrow, but broadly in terms of any other time I may want to carry this way.
    I don't plan to walk around town this way nor do I seek to draw attention or make a statement beyond the march tomorrow.
    So, is it legal to open carry a pistol on a sling if it isn't being waived around menacingly or being pointed at anyone?
    I'll keep my freedom, my liberty, and my guns. You can keep the change.

    You could try MCRGO.Org. They get pretty specific on the laws. I am by no means an attorney, but I believe you are legal. Just remember that open carry has seperate laws than does concealed carry.

    Since some have asked and none was offered (at least that I saw) I thought I could offer some insight. Formal estimates of turnout was arround 500 people. It sure seemed larger once the marchers came down the street and began filling up the area in front of the Capitol steps. I believe some may have drifted off early immediately after the march. It was cloudy with temperature hovering around 30 but the breeze made it feel more like 17 or so they said on the radio. I can believe it, my toes were frozen at the end of standing around for 3+ hours.

    After opening statements, the rally adjourned to allow the marchers to meet with their representatives. Since no signs were to be allowed in the chambers I stood there and listened to the rock band play. Later I learned that some representatives were upset that armed citizens were allowed in our buildings. Lol.

    I didn't see much coverage of the event but the fairest one seems to have been:

    I must admit it was nice to spend a little time with like minded individuals for a change.
