I have read the MSP post it is inaccurate and misleading. This is why they are called law enforcement officers not lawyers. Often they believe it's their job to arrest and let the prosecutors sort the law out later.
I stand by my comments and I say again...you are so very wrong. Go to Michigan State Police website...click on firearms laws...Search Legal Updates, being careful to type it with captal L and E, and use the plural on updates, Go through the updates looking for the keywords Pistol Free Zones...Non-resident carry...Cpl pistol free...Open Carry...or whatever floats your boat.
One more time...non-residents without a home state issued cpl cannot bring a gun into Michigan other than to transport it across the state. You must have a permanent resident cpl from your home state to carry in any manner in Michigan.
Apologies will be accepted anytime. Oh, yeah, be sure you find BOTH pistol free zones. The word "exempt" in the CPL version does not exempt you from the open carry version. Read it and weep.
Here's the first. This says no gun for non-resident without a cpl:
Quote from the MSP website: "Other exceptions to the registration requirement can be found in MCL 28.432. That statute includes an exception for concealed pistol license holders from other states." They post the law's number here, but here they make an inaccurate conclusion: "The bottom line under these statutes is that persons from other states may not bring a pistol into Michigan unless they are a police officer or hold a CPL from their state of residence. There are no exceptions for persons who wish to bring a pistol to Michigan to hunt or target shoot".
If you don't care to read my previous post here are the excerpts from the law that apply. From MCL 28.432:
"28.432 Inapplicability of MCL 28.422 and 28.429; citation as “Janet Kukuk act”.
(1) Sections 2 and 9 do not apply to any of the following
(f) A United States citizen holding a license to carry a pistol concealed upon his or her person issued by another state."
Note in this exemption there is no mention that the holder of the CPL from another state must be a resdent of said state. Just that he needs to be a U.S. citzen.
Here is the pertinent quote for the pistol free zones law:
"750.234d Possession of firearm on certain premises prohibited; applicability; violation as misdemeanor; penalty
(c) A person licensed by this state or another state to carry a concealed weapon.
Note again there is no mention that the permit be from the persons home state. Also this exemption clearly applies to MI CPL holders.
Here is the pertinent quote from the concealed pistol free zones law:
"28.425o Premises on which carrying concealed weapon prohibited; “premises” defined; exceptions to subsection (1); violation.
(1) Subject to subsection (4), an individual licensed under this act to carry a concealed pistol, or who is exempt from licensure under section 12a(f), shall not carry a concealed pistol on the premises of any of the following:"
Note it says concealed pistol. Thus this law does not apply to a unconcealed pistol.
Finally the law that your probably thinking of that requires the permit from the persons home state is the concealed carry law. Here is the concealed weapons law:
"750.227 Concealed weapons; carrying; penalty.
(1) A person shall not carry a dagger, dirk, stiletto, a double-edged nonfolding stabbing instrument of any length, or any other dangerous weapon, except a hunting knife adapted and carried as such, concealed on or about his or her person, or whether concealed or otherwise in any vehicle operated or occupied by the person, except in his or her dwelling house, place of business or on other land possessed by the person.
(2) A person shall not carry a pistol concealed on or about his or her person, or, whether concealed or otherwise, in a vehicle operated or occupied by the person, except in his or her dwelling house, place of business, or on other land possessed by the person, without a license to carry the pistol as provided by law and if licensed, shall not carry the pistol in a place or manner inconsistent with any restrictions upon such license.
(3) A person who violates this section is guilty of a felony, punishable by imprisonment for not more than 5 years, or by a fine of not more than $2,500.00."
Here is the pertinent quote from the exceptions to the above law:
"750.231a Exceptions to § 750.227(2); definitions.
(1) Subsection (2) of section 227 does not apply to any of the following:
(a) To a person holding a valid license to carry a pistol concealed upon his or her person issued by his or her state of residence except where the pistol is carried in nonconformance with a restriction appearing on the license."
Here is where the law requires the permit to be from his own state of residence. However this only applies to "concealed on or about his or her person, or, whether concealed or otherwise, in a vehicle operated or occupied by the person". It does not apply to carrying unconcealed on foot or in a vehicle unloaded and encased or in the trunk with a lawful purpose with the exception to this law made by 750.231a.The same as any resident of MI who has a permit to purchase, carry and transport and a safety inspection but who does not have a CPL. However like a person from MI who has a CPL I can carry into "pistol free zones" with my non-resident permit as long as I carrying unconcealed.
If you think that I am still wrong then post where the law says different. Not where the MSP or any other LEO misinterpret it. Apologies will be accepted anytime.
