    PFZ exemption

    In MI, there are certain areas/places that you are not allowed to carry concealed. However, MI is considering an exemption to this law if CPL-ers take additional training. My question is: Would you be willing to take/pay for additional training in order to CC in "pistol free zones"?

    Depends where the zones are and what the requirement is. I would consider it.

    Absolutely. PFZs are stupid anyway. Hopefully this will be one step in getting rid of them altogether. The law abiding citizens that are licensed to carry concealed should be able to do so wherever they please. In Michigan, PFZs are schools, dorm or classroom of a college or university, any place of worship, bar or tavern where most of their sales come from liquor consumed on the premises, licensed day care center, sports arena or stadium, entertainment venue with seating of 2500+, hospitals and casinos.
    All of which doesn't make much sense. If my unarmed wife or child were in any of these places and SHTF, I hope there is someone with one of those nifty boxes checked on their CPL that says they are exempt (currently only retired LEOs, judges, POs.. people like that).

    Of course, it's a good thing criminals follow gun laws!

    Absolutely. The point of carrying is for protection, and I'd want to be protected in the PFZs just like everywhere else. A sign on the front door is not protection.

    Just completed instructor certified (IC) course in Mississippi. This does allow concealed carry in many areas now restricted to those with non-IC permit. The training was eight hours, discussed laws, safety, general gun nomenclature and finished on the range with 2 hours of instruction. I learned a great deal...well worth the $200 fee.

    Colorado has pretty good CC laws. But if it made a difference, I would take the additional training.

    Another mark in the "yes" column.

    Two places I find myself quite often are restricted here in Ark....

    Yes, absolutely. Keeping my fingers crossed that this passes and have been spreading the word for everyone to contact their senators to support it.
