    These cases could help non-residents in Michigan

    Peterson v. LaCabe (Colorado)
    Peterson v. LaCabe is a federal lawsuit challenging the licensing practices in Denver, Colorado and affects not only "local" laws but state law.
    Gray Peterson, the plaintiff, is a resident of Washington state and holds a Washington state concealed carry permit as well as a Florida non-resident permit. Mr. Peterson applied for and was denied a Colorado Concealed Handgun License (CHL).

    Colorado, like Michigan does not issue CHLs to non-residents, but allows residents of states that have a resident CPL to carry concealed. The suit alleges that by not issuing Mr. Peterson a permit or to extend reciprocity to either of his other permits (Washington's is not recognized at all, Florida permit is non-resident and on that basis is not recognized by Colorado), the state has denied due process, equal protection, and other protections granted by the constitution.

    Also, currently being argued is the case Mishaga v. Monken (Illinois)
    This federal lawsuit is attempting to overturn Illinois's residency requirement on the possession of firearms. Illinois, like Michigan, allows citizens from states that have a license to purchase, carry, possess, or transport a pistol (registration) to possess a pistol within the state (this does not allow concealed carry ie possession in an automobile unless one of the exceptions eg ... to a place they may legally possess the firearm).

    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    I have not seen these on MGO (Michigan Gun Owners). Would you mind this information posted there as well (with H/T to you)?

    You may post the information... it's public and citation is NOT needed. You, or anyone else, may even use my wording if you want or change it as you see fit.
