    Question(for Michigan)

    A friend of mine that I work with is from the UK. He is has a green card and is a "Permenant Legal Resident"

    Can he own a handgun in Michigan? I tried looking through the "firearms law of Michigan book" but that did not tell me anything. So I figured I would ask here and I am sure that someone could lead me in the right direction!

    He's OK under Federal law, but not sure about Michigan.

    FWIW.

    Try going here Michigan Gun Owners and get in the "legal Beagle" section it is moderated by a MI lawyer that will answer minor questions you must register to post

    I am a Green card holder / Permanent Resident Alien, and yes, per Federal and MI State Law, I am allowed to own handguns. I am subject to the EXACT same procedures required to own a handgun, which includes taking a handgun safety test/quiz, getting a permit to purchase a pistol, and then registering it with my local law enforcement agency. A Green card holder is also permitted to apply for and obtain a CPL, which I did and got issued recently.
    Hope this helped. MGO is a great forum to get lots of great info, and Mr. Simmons (lawyer) on that forum will answer basic questions and help direct you in the right direction as needed...and is a great guy on top of it (he taught the legal part of the required CCW class)!
