If you wondered how it went in Detroit, MI. Let me tell you about it.
On a Monday night, August 13, 2012, gun rights activist and firearms instructor, Rick Ector successfully hosted an open carry dinner for a few less than 100 people outside of Detroit, Michigan.
This was Rick’s second annual open carry dinner. It was successful because it happened without a lot of outside help. It was successful because it happened on a weekday, after a rain, and it this day in a time when apathy, ignorance and competition within the gun movement is high. The dinner had live music, southern styled cooking and three speakers.
“It was the safest place to be in Detroit.”
The venue was called “the Upper Room” and is utilized by several church groups. It was a great place to hold this event because it was not connected to a group connected to politics. The musicians came in a little late but we enjoyed them. For the target audience, this was spot on.
