    Everybody in MI should start going to the library and asking for books on guns and freedom :)

    I've been following this case for a while.

    I noticed the linked article lists banks as a MI pistol free zone. That is not true. Many people mistakenly have this assumption, though.

    Probably, if they are pro-gun books.

    I could have sworn they tried that here before, and failed.
    I suppose they could put up a sign, but those don't carry any weight.

    well, you know nothing riles up the emotions like being told to "shush" in a library. Can't depend on people to keep their cool, they may act impulsively and start shooting... :whistling:

    There'll be blood in the aisles!!!! :tongueout:

    What's amazing is that we actually have to debate something such as this in America. It's a no brainier.


    Wait a minute, since the advent of libatard ideology and universities that teach that even though a law is written one way, it means the opposite, you know like 2+2=10.....:shakehead:

    It would be better to offer to donate these types of materials, see what response you get.

    That is exactly how Nazi Germany started out. They banned certain books

    My local library is great.
    I have carried in there many times without a problem.

    They also carry such books at the Blue book of gun values.
    I have also bought several used library books that were put out by the NRA.

    Well, I've come to a different conclusion. I think guns should be permitted in libraries, but only if they're suppressed. Then at least the librarian wouldn't have to "shush" the person if he/she was required to fire their gun in self-defense. :dunno:

    The interesting thing is, if you add libraries to the list of places you can't possess a pistol (so called "open carry no pistol zones" for lack of better term) AND add libraries to the list of no carry zones in the concealed pistol statutes....

    You'd still be able to openly carry a pistol in a library with a valid CPL. Among the exceptions to the places you cannot possess a pistol are cops and someone holding a cpl from MI or any other state. You wouldn't be able to carry it concealed.

    Irony.
