    I'm from Michigan and I do not have my Concealed Pistol License. I am wondering if I can legally open carry into a resaurant?



    Another question. When I unload my gun to get into my car, do I just have to eject the mag and clear the barrel? Or, do I have to clear the mag and the barrel completely of ammunition?

    Thank you for your responses!

    No firearms allowed in restaurants that serve alcohol. Concealed or open carry doesn't matter.

    Yes, you must empty your magazine for your gun to be considered "unloaded" per the legal definition for car transport.

    RT48 is correct on all points.

    So I'm pretty much stuck with loading and unloading until I get my CPL...

    Can't even carry in a restaurant...WOW! My girlfriend would love that. That's one of the places she doens't want me to carry. "We're going out to dinner! Why would you need a gun there?" Never knew BG's took time-outs!!!


    Your state isn't very 2A friendly, is it?

    You can carry in restaurants, just not ones that serve alcohol. It's really not that bad here; the alcohol CPZs and "loaded mags in cars" rules are the worst of what we have to deal with as far as I've encountered.

    Okay, thank you very much.

    Anyone in the Toledo/Sylvania Area open carry? If so, good or bad experiences?
