Thanks again for putting this all together WARCHILD. I took a look at the latest "final" copy. Since you got my distinction between places with liquor licenses put in you should take out the "Any establishment licensed by the Mich liquor act- In any business where the primary souce of income is sold by the glass for consumption on the premisis." part that is under the OC W/CPL section. It's not doing anything now and just taking up space. Or maybe just change it to a heading for the info under it.

I think MOC should try to get a bill in to remove vehicles from carry ban list so that folks could open carry in vehicles without having a CPL.

And other michigan groups should get a bill in to remove theopen carry requirements for CPL holders in some locations.

[size=-1]Generally, firearms have been prohibited in national parks. At the current time, to transport firearms into or through a National Park, the firearms must be made temporarily inoperable or are packed, cased or stored in a manner that will prevent their ready use. Violators are subject to arrest.

[size=-1]However, on May 20, 2009, Congress adopted legislation that prohibits any rule or regulation prohibiting the possession of an operational firearm if the individual is in legal possession of the firearm and if possession of the firearm is in compliance with the laws of the state in which the park or refuge is located. This new law will take effect on February 22, 2010. Until that date, operable firearms remain prohibited in National Parks.
