    Do I lose my CPL if I got an OWI in Michigan?

    I got arrested almost two years ago for Drinking and Driving, I did not have a gun or a Concealed Pistol License at the time. After over a year without getting a court date I assumed it was dropped so I decided to get my CPL. A few months later I was charged with an OWI. I already went through the process, was convicted a month ago, and sentenced yesterday. I know you cannot get a CPL for 3 years if you have an OWI but since I already have a CPL will it be suspended? My driving license has been suspended for about 45 days now but I have not received anything about my CPL being suspended. Does anyone know what will happen or what is supose to happen?

    Forum rule #10 - on the page of rules

    10. Discussion of illegal activities, except in reporting the actions of others, is not allowed. Discussion for the purpose of promoting these activities may subject the poster to being banned. Admission of illegal activity on your part will be removed. Anyone quoting or referencing deleted or edited posts will have their posts edited/removed as well. In short, DO NOT use this forum to admit to breaking the law, even in your distant past.

    I believe the best thing you can do is delete this post. It is NOT a good way to introduce yourself to responsible gun owners!!!!

    I disagree. The OP has a question regarding his/her license, you can't admonish someone for trying to get the correct facts.

    OP, I would call my Sheriff's office (our issuing authority) and let them know what has happened. The best way to handle it is straight forward, if you lose your license for some time, so be it.

    I would call tomorrow and find out.

    You need to call your State Attorney General or speak to your County Sheriff or have an attorney that represents you make the call or calls for you.

    Were I you and in your situation - I would not carry a firearm again until you get it all straightened out.

    My best guess is that you are only "legal" right now due to a paperwork snafu and that has the potential to get legally ugly.

    Relax Granny, I don't think the rule really applies in this situation, He didn't have a firearm at the time of the incident and he's not condoning or hiding the fact that he did something illegal.

    Besides I'm sure he's not the only one on here that has ever done something wrong in the past, hopefully he has learned better and will not do it again

    So your saying that someone who made a bad decision two years ago can not be responsible today?

    Regressive Progressive legislators, such as CA, are trying to add a former DUI/OWI or whatever to the 'prohibited' list of people that cannot own firearms, regardless of when it happened. They want to also add a minor Drunk in Public to the list. It is an easy win for them. To bad they do not apply the same standards to the 'elected Regressive Progressives' at the state house or senate (there are many storys to search on this issue). But again, they are the ruling elite that know what is best for you and I.

    I agree cheef, firearms had nothing to do with the drinking and driving offense, I understand driving is a privelage and that can be taken away but to take away the right to protect myself I think is ridiculous.

    Fair or not, once you have demonstrated poor judgement (drinking and driving), you have to prove you are responsible again. Staying out of trouble for 3 years is what the state requires to do so. You haven't said, but do you drink while carrying? If so you are still showing a lack of judgement (JMO).

    I don't claim to be perfect, I had a DUI 30+ years ago. I spent my time walking afterwards, paid the higher insurance rates once I got my license back and learned my lesson. As I got older I figure out that alcohol and most things don't mix. I can count the number of beers I've had in the last 15 years on 1 hand.
