And if it's legal to open carry in a Michigan State Park, can I transport it there? Would transporting a pistol to a State Park be considered "lawful"?
A person is now permitted to transport a pistol for a lawful purpose if the owner or occupant of the vehicle is
the registered owner of the firearm and the pistol is unloaded and in a closed case in the trunk of the vehicle. If the vehicle
does not have a trunk, the pistol may be in the passenger compartment of the vehicle unloaded and inaccessible to the
occupants of the vehicle.
A 'lawful purpose' includes:
While en route to or from a hunting or target shooting area.
While transporting a pistol to or from home or place of business and a place of repair.
While moving goods from one place of residence or business to another place of residence or business.
While transporting a licensed pistol to or from a law enforcement agency for the purpose of having a safety
inspection performed (registering the pistol) or to have a law enforcement official take possession of the pistol.
While en route to or from home or place of business to a gun show or place of purchase or sale.
While en route to or from home to a public shooting facility or land where the discharge of firearms is permitted.
While en route to or from home to private property where the pistol is to be used as permitted by law, rule,
regulation, or local ordinance.
