Question for those in Michigan with CCW
Ok, I find this absurd. My in-laws just passed all the requirements to get their CCW. They live in Washtanaw County between Ann Arbor and Jackson.
They were told and then told us if someone breaks into their home they are required to do the following or face being arrested and prosecuted for breaking Michigan law .
1. Must call 911 and get the operator with what is happening.
2. Yell loud enough so the 911 operator can hear what your saying and gets recorded.
"Stop, I just called 911 and the police are on there way. I have a gun and will shoot you if you come any further".
If they do not follow this procedure, they can then be held criminally responsible.
I don't know if this is just a scare tactic or what. They were also told that even if you follow the above procedure, you WILL be arrested and have to go to trial and expect to pay at 100K or more for legal expenses.
Then even if you are found innocent, the family can sue you in Civil court but you are not allowed to sue them.
Is this for real :aargh4:
