Thread: Open carry in bank

    Open carry in bank

    Last week while in the bank, I noticed a young man who was obviously not a police officer, openly carrying a pistol while at the window inside the bank. Being new to the whole open carry thing, I'm confused by his actions.

    Michigan Open Carry

    See this link for more information on open carry in Michigan:

    http://www.usacarry.com/forums/michi...-michigan.html

    From what I read on this link, the actions of the young man in the bank were legal.

    From reading your link, if the man in the bank had a CPL he is exempt from the pistol free zone ban on open carry. I would assume that is the case since he was open carrying in the bank, that is a rather obvious place for him to carry illegally. It is possible of course that he is just not familiar with the law and was in violation of theban on open carry in the bank.

    Hopefully he was just a CPL holder and ignorant of the law.

    Wow, Michigan law is confusing. Anyway, finally found the pertinent statute:

    Michigan Legislature - Section 750.234d

    THE MICHIGAN PENAL CODE (EXCERPT)
    Act 328 of 1931


    750.234d Possession of firearm on certain premises prohibited; applicability; violation as misdemeanor; penalty.

    Sec. 234d.

    (1) Except as 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, Act No. 8 of the Public Acts of the Extra Session of 1933, being sections 436.1 to 436.58 of the Michigan Compiled Laws.

    (2) This section does not apply to any of the following:

    (a) A person who owns, or is employed by or contracted by, an entity described in subsection (1) if the possession of that firearm is to provide security services for that entity.

    (b) A peace officer.

    (c) A person licensed by this state or another state to carry a concealed weapon.

    (d) A person who possesses a firearm on the premises of an entity described in subsection (1) if that possession is with the permission of the owner or an agent of the owner of that entity.

    (3) A person who violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than 90 days or a fine of not more than $100.00, or both.

    BTW,
    How did you know it was obviously not a LEO? You'd be surprised what some of the NCIS agents here look like, especially when off duty.

    I just want to know it's ok for me to oc while in the bank with a cpl.

    PLACES off limits to firearms without a CPL: 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 Bank. b) A church. 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 (BAR). This is code michigan.
    1) Any law abiding citizen of the State of Michigan who owns a safety inspected handgun may openly carry (in a holster) said firearm in all places not explicitly exempt by law with or without a CPL. Private property rules over-ride state law in regards to firearm possession.
