Yesterday was Open Carry Day at the Michigan state capital in Lansing. “’I was watching them out my office window and they were marching around the Capitol with signs and guns. And if they entered the Capitol, they would have to leave their sign outside,’ but not their firearms, said state Rep. Jeremy Moss, D-Southfield, one of the sponsors of the legislation. ‘So there’s a disparity in that we favor the second Amendment over the First Amendment.’” Naturally, he’s proposed banning the guns and allowing the signs inside the building. Allowing both rights, unimpeded, would never occur to a dedicated statist. In marginally better news . . .
Texas A&M Proposes Rules Allowing Guns In Classrooms – A&M recommends carrying in classrooms and college owned housing. Better than most Texas campuses so far.
These 3 California school districts allow staff to pack guns to work – “Our narrow practice of allowing select, law-abiding employees to securely store and access a firearm in the event of an emergency is a legal and appropriate safety measure given the unfortunate reality of violence in our society today.” Now you know where to send your kids to school in the Golden State.
Arizona House Republicans Beat Back Measure Telling Them To Leave Their Guns At Home – Good. Now how about allowing everyday Arizonans to carry in the capitol, too?

It’ll be no surprise to anyone who is familiar with the Detroit Free Press that there are a lot of mistakes and a lot of fundamental things they got wrong in that Michigan article. Honestly, when most reporters write about firearms they are like a third grader trying to do calculus.
Unfortunately, they’re like that when they write about pretty much anything. It’s just that you only really notice when they write about something you know well.
They call it the Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect.
The Detroit Free Press provides incredible value for this state.
Imagine how many fish would go unwrapped and bird cages would go unlined if they ceased publication.
It was my first time at the capitol and I was walking around with my GLOCK 17, SR1911, and FAL looking at the wood work, paintings, and other cool things.
Noooo . Yah gotya be shittn me. You was walkin around with them wepons , where everybody could see them. Righr on Brother..you got balls
Thank you for representing, I was at work but open carry often. People don’t look up from their phones often enough to notice.
OMG! Open carry of long guns in public! Black rifle kind of long guns! AK kind of long guns! I’m sure some TTAG readers are going to sh!t a brick because of this. NOBODY needs to carry long guns right? Chipotle Ninjas, bad PR, and all that jazz, right?
Im surprised we got this far down without a single mention of said Chipotle Ninjas.
Those open carriers might scare some liberals.
I live not to far from Lansing, Mi.
Unfortunately I was in Indianapolis Thursday.
I have worked with some state officials including State Police and had good experience.
For all Michigan is right now ( Flint, Mi.)
we still have some good things here and we have an incredibly beautiful state.
It is good to have loyailty to your State. God bless and 3s n 8s your way.
Just be prepared to lose a tire or two on your way to our beautiful locations due to the roads failing, don’t drink the water in flint, and don’t stop near Detroit to get gas on the way North.
Its hard. I was looking at pics of Hillary, thinking about the ultimate perversion. Doing it with a hildabeast, I think Frank Zappa made a song about that? P’-I-N’-k’-Y or maybe it was about eskimo dogs in alaska. Yeh the eskimo dogs in Akaska wouldnt do Hildebeast. Thats it.
I missed it, how many dozens of people were killed in Lansing that day due to all those guns?
Exactly. There were between 300 and 400 armed people there and it was, of course, very peaceful. No angry chants against the government, no threats, no violence. There was practically zero police presence, also. I only saw four MI State Troopers, two standing on the East side talking with each other, bored, and two standing on the West side talking with each other, bored. And we had one older trooper who led the “march” portion.
Contrast that with the rally held by the Democrat unions a few years ago. There were state, county, and local police all around, fights broke out, the Democrats threatened people in and out of the government, they tore down media tents, cutting them up with pocketknives, and they destroyed the cart of a black hot dog vendor named Clint Tarver, his only means of livelihood.
We, people in the conservative community, banded together and bought Clint a new one.
The most polite place in the whole world is a gun show. The second most polite place on the planet is an open carry demonstration.
It’s beautiful because it’s not a bit ironic. It demonstrates perfectly that the people displaying openly that they’re carrying a firearm simply do not want any trouble and they’re saying that clearly and distinctly.
“The debate came after Democrats discovered that House Speaker David Gowan had quietly decided to let lawmakers bring their guns to work. A House spokeswoman insisted no law was being broken as Gowan had removed the no-guns sign from the back door some lawmakers use.”
Arizona TTAG’ers, What is Arizona law on a building not having a no-guns sign on each and every exit?
Guns. I’m off the topic here but new to the AR-15 thing! What is an assault weapon or gun? I’m not new to firearms that started forty years ago, I’m just new to AR.
You want to know what the federal definition of an assault weapon is? Look at the Gun Control Act of 1968:
(30) The term “semiautomatic assault weapon” means —
(A) any of the firearms, or copies or duplicates of the firearms in any caliber, known as —
(i) Norinco, Mitchell, and Poly Technologies Avtomat Kalashnikovs (all models);
(ii) Action Arms Israeli Military Industries UZI and Galil;
(iii) Beretta Ar70 (SC-70);
(iv) Colt AR-15;
(v) Fabrique National FN/FAL, FN/LAR, and FNC;
(vi) SWD M-10, M-11, M-11/9, and M-12;
(vii) Steyr AUG;
(viii) INTRATEC TEC-9, TEC-DC9 and TEC-22; and
(ix) revolving cylinder shotguns, such as (or similar to) the Street Sweeper and Striker 12;
Assault weapon is a political term that means black scary gun, looks generally militaristic. An assault weapon has nothing to do with select fire or full auto, as the socialists and gun grabbers want all civilian owned guns to be defined as assault weapons, and those are almost all semi-auto or single shot. There really is no such thing as an assault weapon. For example it is generally accepted that an AR-15 in New York with a FRS-10 stock and no other SAFE act features is not defined as an assault weapon, but if you put a pistol grip on it then it instantly becomes about 1000 times more dangerous and is banned.
Assault rifle refers to a rifle that uses an intermediate cartridge as opposed to a battle rifle using a larger cartridge such as a 308 or 30-06, I believe these can be semi, select fire or FA. Many of these have very dangerous pistol grips so if you see one you should run away screaming.
I’m sure there’s more to it, but these are the basics.
