He just told the entire Upper Penninsula of Michigan that you cannot carry openly nor concealed a handgun into a police station now with the new law. I was simply uterly amazed at him and wondering if he normally makes things up while talking to the press.
Anyways, I posted my comment, mentioned OC and CC were legal in police stations completely and my beliefs in why the law was changed.
Story goes as this:
MARQUETTE COUNTY -- If you plan on buying and registering a handgun in the State of Michigan next year, the process is going to soon change.
After January 7, purchasers will no longer need to bring in their weapons to be inspected at their local police agencies.
However, they still need to send in two copies of the paperwork within 10 days of buying a handgun.
Marquette County Undersheriff Jack Schneider says the switch is a matter of safety.
"It prevents handguns from coming in the police department, someone returning to the lobby of a police department with a gun...it prevents our staff from handling those guns with the potential of something goin awry," says Schneider.
If you have any questions on the change, you can contact the Marquette Sheriff's Office at 225-8435.
