    You have stated the open carry is unrestricted in Michigan on the info page. It is if you don't have a CPL. But you are restricted if you don't have a CPL in these places (1) Sec. 234d (1) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (2), a person shall not possess a firearm on the premises of any of the following:
    a) A depository financial institution or a subsidiary or affiliate of a depository financial institution.
    b) A church or other house of religious worship.
    c) A court.
    d) A theatre.
    e) A sports arena.
    f) A day care center.
    g) A hospital.
    h) An establishment licensed under the Michigan liquor control act.

    SO THERE IS SOME RESTRICTION. You may want to update that as well. And again open carry is becoming more popular in the city as well as rural areas. You might want to make note of that as well.
    *The information contained above is not meant to be legal advice, but is solely intended as a starting point for further research on the subject of open carry in Michigan. If you have further questions it is advisable to seek out an attorney that is well versed in firearm law.

    I think for now Ill stick to leaving my weapon in the car when I enter schools and such, unless that is if I speak with the owners first. Id hate to cause a panic at a local school or court house. Then again, guns being pointed at me with people in dark clothing with metal shields on their shirts, isnt good for this guy, not in the least bit. But, it would help reduce the negative image on all people with guns.

    Question...I dont openly carry very often, but I do have a rather awsome level 2 retention holster, I live within the Flint City limits, and recently I heard the City had banned open carry, can they enforce the law within city limits or does state still overrule their law?
    I know state usually superceeds local laws, but can the city even issue me a ticket or citation?
    Thanks,

  8. When you refer to the pistol free zones not applying to CPL holders, does that mean they can open carry in these places

    Yes. In Michigan there is a list of places where a CPL holder cannot carry a CONCEALED handgun. There is another list of places where firearms are not allowed to be. The second list is almost the same but still slightly different. The big part about the second list is it exempts those who have a CPL. So since they are not carry concealed under the first list and the second list exempts them they can open carry(the second list makes no mention of open carry).

  11. open carry questions

    Are there ever any open carry q and a meetings or information groups that get together in lansing?
