    Hello all,

    This is my first post here after discovery of Michigan OC law through an interesting way.

    And that brings me to this question. Genesee County Parks has this in their rules:

    "Section XXV – Firearms
    For purposes of these rules, the term “firearm” shall include any revolver, pistol, shotgun, rifle, air rifle, air gun, water gun, slingshot, BB gun or any gun, rifle, firearm or bow or other device which is designed to discharge projectiles or are models or facsimiles of these devices, which appear to be capable of doing so.

    No person shall possess or control any firearm (except those as permitted by MCL 28.421 et seq) upon properties administered by or under the jurisdiction of the Commission, except by prior written permission of the Commission or as allowed by the Commission from time to time in designated areas.
    No person shall discharge any firearm upon property administered by or under the jurisdiction of the Commission except by prior written permission of the Commission or as allowed by the Commission from time to time in designated areas.

    This section shall not apply to any law enforcement officer acting in the course of his/her official duties."


    My question is, would this be unenforceable because of Michigan's Preemptive Law?

    Welcome to the forum!

    I hope that guy did have a CPL though, in case a train is considered a vehicle by law.

    Welcome!

    Pretty sure any vehicle is whether privately or publicly funded is considered a concealed carry, hence all the questions regarding bicycles and motorcycle OC.
