Newb here at OC. Please excuse me if this has been asked before, it's hard to find threads that are so specific to my question.
While I am an open carry advocate for reasons stated around here by many, I have completed my CPL class and await my appearance before the Macomb county board to finalize my license. I have a situation...
I am a residential construction contractor. I will be working in the #1 "most dangerous neighborhoods in America" (as seen here), on the exterior of many homes.
So my question...
According to the Michigan law;
Considering that this is my place of business for the next two weeks or so, Is it safe to say I can carry concealed while I am working on this project? It's more of a safety concern of mine. I would normally just open carry, but I'd feel like the target if something goes wrong.
It is unlawful to carry a handgun concealed on or about one’s person or concealed or openly in a vehicle without a license to carry a concealed pistol.
A Michigan license is not required:
-To transport a pistol unloaded and in a container in a trunk of a vehicle or, if the vehicle has no trunk, the pistol is in a container and is not readily
accessible to the occupants of the vehicle, provided that the pistol is being transported for a lawful purpose.
-To carry in one’s dwelling house or place of business or on one’s own land.
-Carrying an antique firearm, unloaded and in a container in the trunk of a vehicle.
-When a person who is licensed to carry a concealed pistol in the state of his residence,
except where the pistol is carried in nonconformance with a restriction appearing on the license.
-When a person is a law enforcement officer.
I would rather not end up with a felony for CCW and lose my right to own firearms should the police pull up and I am completely off base with my understanding here.
Any experience with such a matter would be greatly appreciated!
