-- ONLY allows members of the "military" (those listed) to get a CPL early... excludes everyone else
-- Michigan's CPL is more widely recognized than any other state's license. We may lose that status as many states (Washington, Maine, Nevada, etc) require the states they recognize to only issue to those 21+. By my quick estimation, we may lose about 10-15 states... with little to no expansion of the "right to carry" here in Michigan because...
-- They are already exempt from licensure; they are already allowed to carry concealed at 18 in most instances. see MCL 28.432a
This is, in my humble opinion, is another attempt by the legislature to APPEAR to be doing something "pro 2A" when, in fact, it is actually an "Anti 2A Bill". This bill would reduce the ability of Michigan's CPL holders to carry in many states who currently recognize our CPL. In fact, there can be no other explanation other than the legislature's attempt to further limit a CPL holder's right to carry out of state since, in most instances, the people who would benefit from this are already exempt from licensure under MCL 28.432a.
