I hope people before or after the picnic take a walk through art prize so people can see that gun owners are law abiding, good people. The picnics are fun but much more awareness would be garnered if people do take in Art Prize while practicing "lawful open carry (or concealed carry w/ license) of a handgun." though what difference the concealed carry would have on the masses I don't really know.

It was great to see so many there. Good job everyone.

Open-carry picnic brings 200 people, including children, to Riverside Park

mlive disgusts me. [mlive thinking] Lets link to story's that imply that a guy watching a soccer game broke the law but use the headline "Open-carry picnic brings 200 people, including children, to Riverside Park". Then just show unflattering pictures of people with their mouths open.[/]
