    Congrats! Carrying in Michigan is so much easier with a CPL!

    Is it time for a wally walk?
    My reasons to OC
    1. to raise awareness of the legality of open carry in Michigan
    2. To raise awareness that good people carry guns
    3. A deterrent to people so that I won't be targeted
    4. Because it's more comfortable than CC in most situations
    5. Because I can and want to
    6. Because it's perfectly legal
    7. Self defense

    Why do they need CPL's if they are open carrying ? Do you now think your above the others without one ? You can go a lot of places that don't require a CPL.

    I think he was referring to a Wally Walk, no CPL no walk. Which of course IS stupid.

    Beyond STUPID, flat out retarded. Here in AZ any law abiding citizen of age can carry in wally world, krogers/frys, 7-11/Circle k or any other place that sells unopened containers of booze... all without a CPL /CCW.
    Guess what? No drunks shooting little kids & old ladies.... MI law in this matter is flat out wrong! To assume merely being in a area that has CLOSED containers of booze, makes one dangerous without a special permission slip from the state speaks volumes of what your leaders really think about "their" people in general. If I were a LEO, I would find it very hard to enforce this law as it runs contrary to the 2A, & Art.1A Sec. 6 of the MI constitution. Where do they say carry for defense "execpt if there is beer, wine, etc.. for sale for use off the property?" Are there not laws on the books against being intoxicated & carrying a gun? Of course there are! So to me the whole purpose of such laws are to keep as many in MI defenseless as possible by proxy. Rant off. God save the good people of MI, as clearly your leaders won't.

    No? Did i say that? Yes you can go alot of places with one. But theres also alot of grey areas. I open carry without a cpl for months. No one is above anyone and i shouldn't have to get a bs " cpl " for my god given right to defend myself.. And i was referring to a wally walk.
