    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Great post for Michiganders, or those planning to visit that state.

    Maybe I missed something. NC is a gold star OC state per OCDO. What did I miss that trumps NC?

    To the OP, I'm assuming this just clarifies that OC is not illegal?

    Correct, this just clarifies.

    The issue has been and I'm sure will continue for sometime is ignorance of the law or down right ignoring the law.

    This OFFICIAL MSP Legal Update is a bit of a trump card. When confronted by a rogue LEO it can be show to them and may get them to back down.

    We can also send/show this as official notice to rogue police departments.

    That is an awesome read; nothing like clear, concise language shared between the law and the people.

    Man, the more I read these statements of "legalize" the more confusing they get. They always seem to "clarify" something, but to whom I'm not sure. At least it clearly states that OC is not "illegal."

    Great clarification. Interesting that a cpl holder may carry openly in any of the places otherwise prohibited. Not sure I would want to test it out, but that seems to be what the law says.

    The title threw me off a little bit. I don't see this a huge milestone, but the State Police ensuring that their officers are up to date on the firearms laws in Michigan. I talked to my local Sheriff who is the president of the approving board for CPLs in my county and he stated that in the past year or so applications for CPLs in my county have been through the roof. Its a good thing that the MSP are taking steps to further re enforce the officers training to ensure that the interaction with the public concerning guns is done by the numbers.

    The reason it's a milestone is because up till now we that OC would have to "debate" the law with a LEO. And no matter what, they "know better" then us lowly citizens. This ends the debate with local LEO's as it's clarification from their superiors (MSP).

    We've NEEDED this here in Michigan for a very long time.

    Good deal, then. We have a bit of this in NC. OC is not illegal, therefore legal. Occasionally we get someone who want's to interpret it the other way. Not a lot, but it does happen. But we have NC Supreme Court case law to fall back on.
