concealed pistol license

LANSING, MI (AP)--   The Republican-led Michigan House has voted to lessen the penalty for having an expired concealed pistol license. 

The bill approved Wednesday would create a six-month grace period after a permit expires in which people who fail to renew would face a $330 fine if they are found carrying a concealed pistol. The current punishment is up to a five-year felony.

LANSING, MI--   State Representative Beau LaFave has introduced legislation that would eliminate the concealed pistol license requirement. 

His bill would let all legal gun owners carry anywhere CPL holders are currently allowed to carry. Under the four-bill package, the current concealed pistol licensing structure would remain in place, allowing individuals who hold a CPL to continue to carry concealed pistols in other states with reciprocity. Unlicensed individuals will not be permitted to carry concealed in pistol-free zones.
