    Looking for thread i.e. DA said will prosecute CPL holders if 2nd handgun concealed.

    Sorry but a Search did not turn anything up (probably my poor choice of search terms).

    Anyway, I recall reading a thread about whether or not it is legal to carry a second handgun concealed with a CPL in Michigan. The consensus was yes it is legal, but there was a side discussion about an anti-gun District Attorney who took the opposite view and threatened that she would prosecute any concealed carry permit holder who carried more than one handgun concealed. I would like to find out more information about this, thanks.

    Hmmm . . . interesting. I read "DA" as "dumba**" instead of what you probably meant. Was that because Kym Worthy was in the same sentence, and my mind automatically made the right choice?

    Keep in mind she put Kwame away. 2 sides to the coin, one is bad, and one is good.

    Thanks very much. I'm not a member of Michigan Gun Owner's so I must have seen a thread somewhere on this forum. If all else fails I'll register over at that site to gain access to the above link . . but I have a bad habit of getting hooked on gun forums, there goes several more hours a week :-)

    Thanks for making me look bad Doug! I have also read an article that she is quoted in, I THOUGHT, where she also made this absurd claim, I have been searching, and searching, and SEARCHING!!! My Google (actually bing google just sounds cooler) fu, is failing me! I may have to retract everything, so...

    As of this moment I can not find a source where Kym Worthy made a statement saying a CPL holder can carry only one pistol.

    I don't know why folks are worried about this. The state police even have this question on their FAQ; however, they do not have the answer. The answer is here....

    8.3b Singular and plural; gender.

    Sec. 3b.

    Every word importing the singular number only may extend to and embrace the plural number, and every word importing the plural number may be applied and limited to the singular number. Every word importing the masculine gender only may extend and be applied to females as well as males.

    Oh I'm not worried, but it makes a good example for the letter I'm drafting.

    Not really surpriseing is it. She is famous for her well thought out statements and wise legal advice.

    By that thought stream a criminal who commits a hundred bad acts should get a pass because of one good act?

    And Kwame gave her more than enough to lead to sink an aircraft carrier. My cat could convict that guy. See cat at left....
