Detroit, Michigan Concealed Weapons Class Teacher's Protest Site Against Local International House of Pancake Restaurant (IHOP) Nets 800th Supporter.
Online PR News – 07-June-2011 – – The "Boycott The Detroit IHOP - Crime Empowerment Zone" Page, an anti-IHOP presence on social media giant Facebook has just netted its 800th supporter. The boycott site was created by a local Michigan Concealed Weapons Class Teacher, Rick Ector, in response to that local restaurant's active ban on the possession of all legally carried firearms - openly carried or lawfully concealed carried with a state of Michigan Concealed Weapons Permit.
In the state of Michigan, the open carry of a pistol in a visible holster is legal without a license, as long as the carrier is 18, the carrier is on foot, the carrier avoids pistol-free zones, and the pistol is registered to the carrier.
Ector supports the local IHOP management's right to ban gun-toting patrons from its premises. He stated, "I am an ardent supporter of private property rights. However, I am also a strong supporter of the First Amendment, as well as the Second Amendment. If they don't want lawful firearms owners dining there, I will get the word out and encourage them not to patronize that establishment. We now have 800 supporters; the message is reaching our market."
Rick Ector is a National Rifle Association credentialed Firearms Trainer, who provides Michigan CCW Class training in Detroit for students at his firearms school - Rick's Firearm Academy of Detroit. Ector is a recognized expert in firearm safety and has been featured extensively in the national and local media: Associated Press (AP), NRAnews, Fox News Detroit, The Detroit News, WJLB, WGPR and the UrbanShooterPodcast.
