Detroit Concealed Weapons Permit Teacher's IHOP Boycott Site Nets 800th Supporter

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.
