Pretty interesting. I'd be willing to bet that in those situations, (open carry in restricted areas), the local PD will be called promtly. It'd be nice to get the message out so as to avoid hassels.
(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. [Emphasis added.]
By its express terms, section 234d prohibits certain persons from carrying a firearm in the enumerated places but explicitly exempts from its prohibition "[a] person licensed by this state or another state to carry a concealed weapon." Thus, any person licensed to carry a concealed pistol, including a private investigator, is exempt from the gun-free zone restrictions imposed by section 234d of the Penal Code and may therefore possess firearms while on the types of premises listed in that statute.
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?
When you refer to the pistol free zones not applying to CPL holders, does that mean they can open carry in these places
