LANSING, MICHIGAN — Governor Rick Snyder signed a revised law into action which would eliminate gun boards and instead allow those pursuing a concealed pistol license (CPL) to apply directly to either the Michigan State Police or the county clerk’s office. This is a measure which is thought to greatly expedite the approval process without adding undue burden upon either the government or the citizens applying.
Michigan, at present, enjoys the most reciprocity of all the states for its concealed pistol license. It is only issued to residents and comes with restrictions as to prohibited locations and activities.
Gov. Snyder has vetoed other measures in the past which would have expanded requirements to allow those with advanced training and a concealed pistol license to go into places like schools and bars, according to WWMT.
We’ll be going into an article in the near future discussing what a Federal concealed carry permit would look like given the current state of affairs. Needless to say, Michigan is right up in the front rungs of places with the most concealed carry reciprocity.
For those under personal protection orders, there is an expedited process for obtaining a Michigan CPL which waives the 6 months residency requirement.
