    For our data base I'm asking you to let me know if you have a CPL or not. But answer only if you have open carried, even once, except hunting. I want to be able to relate to the legislature how many people that OC have a CPL. This, in case they think that everybody that OC'sdoesn't have training or the background check. Not that you should have it to OC. I just want to have some ammunition in case they want to implement legislation to license OC.

    A national poll on opencarry.org showed about 80% of people that OCed had licenses. I wonder if Michigan will compare to that.




    Damn spelling. That should be open not pen in thatsecond question.

    I do not currently have my CPL "in hand". I did however turn in my application on 9/19/08. Just awaiting my gun board date. Currently voted as "I do not have a CPL and have open carried". Will change when/if CPL is issued.

    I have my cpl and have always open carried, since I found out it was legal. I tend to avoid those places which deny me that right.

    Have you heard rumors to the effect that the Michigan legislature is considering licensing OC? I can't imagine that such would pass the Constitutionality test. If CC has become a privilege, then that leaves OC as the only Constitutional 2nd Amendment RIGHT left to Michigan citizens. Thus, if OCis legislated intoa privilege, citizens could no longer be said to have a 2nd Amendment RIGHT at all!

    I hope yourpollis merely conjecture.

    I have not heard anything about this. I agree that it would be difficult but not impossible. This is just being proactive. There are 14 states that require a licence to OC, our neighbor Indianabeing one. So it can happen. If the legislature smells a way to make money...who knows.

    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."

    I have my CPL and as soon as the weather was warm enough I have been OC'ing. I find it much more easy and comfortable. For me it's more of a convenience thing. Helping to educate and desensitize are just perks. Choice is a great thing. This past Thursday was the first day in many months that I CC'ed for the majority of the day.

    As I stated I OC mostly for convenience and as such I think, now that the weather is getting cooler, I will CC for convenience. This is not to say that I will be CC'ing 100% of the time though

    Please vote on this poll, we would like to get at least a hundred people to vote. We have lots of viewers, but not enough voters. How about it?

    I have a CPL and have been openly carrying since I found this site. Mostly due to the time of year, however, as the seasons change I will not go out of my way to keep it visible, unless entering a Gun Free Zone.
