Usually the gun board meets once, the first week, of each month.
There are no new gun laws in Michigan. The Gov. vetoed the proposed change as to how the license is issued. It basically gave everything to the Sheriff with shall issue in effect.
She got her letter, still have to go in front of gun board(not worried). Letter said at least 60 people instead of the normal 20. She is one of the last to go up, think I might be late for work that day

She got it!....... I guess since there were so many applicants, the first guy went up they asked him 12 questions. Then they asked the entire group if they understud every thing asked, everyone said yes, then asked if anyone would answer no, to any....... told everyone the were approved and could leave(with permit)

Outstanding! Congrats to your wife and the other 59 newly licensed citizens of MI.
its more that there are usually so many people to swear in and go through, it has to be a mass procedure or it would take hours.. in Bay county, my meeting group was about 80 people, and that was a small group, they said. I was told that normally its 100-120 easy... cant even fit everyone into the meeting chambers, they stand outside.
The gun board thing is a farce and the legislation to get rid of them should have been passed last year. Thank our "republican" governor for that not happening...
I didn't have to appear at a gun board in Oakland county but my son had too in Maccomb county about a year ago. They asked him a few questions and handed him his cpl, no big thing but a pain in the a$$. Don't worry should be good.
The 'raise your right hand' swearing to the accuracy of your responses proabably serves to strengthen the State's case against those who would lie about such matters.
And perhaps the face-to-face meeting is intended to give the officials one last look at you...screening for wild-eyed nut cases who happen to have a clean record??
I don't think this procedure has anything to do with unions or overtime.
The panel members looked like they wanted to be anywhere but where they were.
Michigan 'gun boards' sound like nothing more than a bunch of little Napoleons to me...:hand1:
