    Waiting to go to the gun board

    As some of you probably know I have only been in Michigan for a few months but I have made getting my Michigan CPL a priority. There is absolutely nothing more important too me than my second amendment rights and my ability to defend myself. I can only claim residency in Michigan for three months and I did not want to have to wait for the required six months to pass. I was excited when I learned the gun board "may" waive the six month period for people who have a CPL for another state.

    Having two CPL's from other states and being on my second Washington resident CPL I felt like my odds would be decent. I took my CPL class on December 9th, got all of my paperwork, fingerprinting and fees taken care of including registering my handguns and I am just waiting on the gun board. I was told because I have already had a CPL in the past the gun board could just mail me my new CPL but most likely they will call me in. Being from a state with a much different process the Michigan way can be a little intimidating. I do not feel having to go before the gun board is constitutional but not having a choice I will jump through as many hoops as I have too

    Just tell them you have been OCing everywhere legal, but you would prefer to get your CPL so that you can start CCing like normal people do.
    Dude guess I'm %50 abnormal being that I OC atleast one pistol & CC atleast one at all times?

    @OP

    Gun boards are just another goofy MI gun law "feature". If you are lucky and do not live in Wayne Co (aka WACO) you should be just fine.

    He was suggesting using the threat of OC to push the gun board to waive the six month residency restriction.

    My brother did that successfully. I believe he said something along the lines of "well I guess I will just have to OC"
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    Ahh thanks guys. Makes sense. Hey if OC gets a gun board to issue a CPL so be it.
