The Michigan Gun Owners organization and Michigan Open Carry, Inc. hosted a picnic on Saturday, Aug. 19 at the park to get together and exercise their right to openly carry their holstered handguns in public.“With open carry, we bring gun ownership out of the closet,” said Tom Lambert, president of Michigan Open Carry, Inc. “In that strategy you see success, because people learn the truth. They learn that their friends, neighbors and family are gun owners, and they’re not bad people.”Lambert said several picnics are held every year in different locations around the state. He emphasized the picnic was not in response to any particular event, just an opportunity to openly carry and advocate for the groups’ cause.
