I'm newly registered to the forum but have been reading for quite some time. There is a lot of great info to be found here. Thank you all for your contributions.
First off I'm not employed by nor a volunteer of a police or sheriff dept. and my question come up after doing research while trying to educate my supervisor about the laws regarding OC and CC in Michigan.
§750.234d and §28.425o
State where you can not OC or CC respectivley. AG Opinions 7098 and 7101 reference how reserve officers are defined as not being peace officers.
So, my question being this. If they are not peace officers and are carrying their side arm under the same restrictions that the average citizen is, when they get into a patrol car and they do not posses a CPL, are they not breaking the law?
I did do a bunch of searching on this forum and also have spent hours reviewing the firearms laws handbook and have found nothing to the contrary.
Thanks in advance for any input. If nobody can help me answer this, I will forward a copy to my state law makers.
