Great more special privileges for LEOs. Once again we are equal or we are not.

Thank God I'm alive!
And how does any of this benefit ordinary, law abiding citizens who aren't LEOs or corrections officers?

Sadly it doesn't, but, it does give Reserve members of the LEO's a step in the right direction. Before, unless they were in an official capacity and in uniform, the permissions were the same as for everyday Joe Citizens too.

I do understand it doesn't help everyone yet, but, it is a form of forward progress.

We just have to keep pushing the issue forward to get exempt status to be a non-issue.

Well a CPL holder can open carry in those places based on two AG opinions, the MSP and Senator Prusi stated that a person with a CPL can carry a firearm openly in the exempted areas listed in MCL 750.234d. For example, with permission from the owner you can openly carry a handgun in a bar, sports arena, etc.

AG Opinions No. 7097 January 11, 2002 and No. 7097 January 11, 2002. “Your analysis is correct. Non-CPL pistol free zones do not apply to CPL holders. The CPL pistol free zones only apply to CPL holders carrying a concealed pistol. Therefore, a CPL holder may openly carry a pistol in Michigan's pistol free zones.” Sgt. Thomas Deasy, Michigan State Police Executive Resource Section, (517) 336-6441.)

Precaution: There is no known case law to substantiate or overturn these opinions
