    Good work, John.
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    I guess the following was missed from their Legal Opinion..

    Quote Originally Posted by MCL 28.422

    Sec. 2.

    (1) Except as otherwise provided in this section, a person shall not purchase, carry, possess, or transport a pistol in this state without first having obtained a license for the pistol as prescribed in this section.

    Once you have gone to the Police Department for a License To Purchase/Pistol Purchase Permit (RI-010) or you have a Concealed Pistol License (CPL), you may carry your pistol openly.

    ETA - John, please feel free to update your article with this information.

    Nicely done! However, it will never pass muster. You based your offering on fact, law, and reason instead of fear, prejudice, and closed-mindedness. Again, well done!
