Hello everyone. I've been lurking around here for a while (very informative). Since I don't own any firearms, and am a few months shy of being able to purchase a handgun, I really have much to contribute. Well, until now.
I was looking through the Madison Heights city ordinances and came across this:
Sec. 17-141. Restrictions on possession of firearms.
(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to carry a firearm 30 inches or less in length on his person, concealed or otherwise, in the public streets, alleys, public shopping centers or places of business frequented by the public, public parks, public school property, property locations of religious worship open to the public or any other place in the city unless the bearer possesses a duly authorized unexpired Michigan license to carry a concealed weapon.
Now, I thought this was illegal, but then I came across the exemption paragraph:
All sworn law enforcement officers, certified by the commission on law enforcement standards, or its successor, and employed on a full-time basis as a law enforcement officer by this state or a political subdivision thereof, all reserve officers performing their duties as reserve officers, court officers performing their duties as court officers, animal control officers performing their duties as animal control officers, military personnel in pursuit of official duty, and persons duly authorized by state or federal law to carry firearms and/or dangerous weapons, are exempt from the provisions of this article,
except those provisions concerned with hunting.
Now, is it just me, or does this seem very misleading?
