A depository financial institution (e.g., bank or credit union)
A church or other place of religious worship
A sports arena

An establishment licensed under the Liquor Control Code
The above section does not apply to any of the following:

A peace officer
A person with a valid concealed pistol license (CPL) issued by any state
A person who possesses on one of the above listed premises with the permission of the owner or owner’s agent
Officers must be aware of the above exemption for valid CPL holders as many of the citizens who openly carry firearms possess valid CPLs. An individual with a valid CPL may carry a non-concealed firearm in the above listed premises.
A CPL holder is not required by law to carry a pistol concealed. A CPL holder may carry a pistol concealed or non-concealed.
