Event Details

We invite all supporters of freedom, gun rights, and Open Carry to attend Legally Armed In Detroit's (LAID) Second Annual Open Carry Dinner. The evening's festivities will feature admission to the venue, free on-site parking, a delicious dinner, live entertainment, and the benefit of hearing addresses from two well known national gun rights activists: Pastor Kenn VF Blanchard (Black Man With A Gun) and Mr. John Pierce (Founder of OpenCarry.org). 


Rev. Kenn Blanchard, is internationally known as the Black Man With A Gun. He is an ordained Christian minister and a full time pastor in Washington, DC. He also works as an intelligence analyst. The former US Marine, was one of the first African American firearms instructors for the CIA. He has ten years in federal law enforcement and has traveled and trained all over the world in executive protection. He has been involved in counter terrorism since 1986. He is the author of Black Man with A Gun, A Responsible Gun Ownership Manual for African Americans, Naked but Not Ashamed, and the Zen of Gun Ownership.

John Pierce is a life-long gun rights advocate, an NRA certified instructor and co-founder of the nationwide gun rights group OpenCarry.org. He also writes a popular Second Amendment legal blog called Monachus Lex and is a member of the American Bar Association Second Amendment Civil Rights Litigation Subcommittee. 


Last year's dinner did not feature any nationally recognized gun rights speakers and still managed to sell completely out of tickets. This year we made it a point to outdo last year's dinner. Pastor Blanchard's and Mr. Pierce's appearances will assure that. As such, tickets are limited and I am extremely confident that this event will sell out. So, if you desire to attend, buy your ticket now!


Pastor Kenn VF Blanchard  Mr. John Pierce - Founder of OpenCarry.org
