    Please all Michigan CPL holders and supporter visit the following link. Read through the information and if you agree, contact the Senators mentioned and let your voices be heard. This is being sponsored by Michigan Open Carry, but is actually aimed towards all CPL holders, whether you carry open or concealed. This is not an "be all, end all" bill, but is a step in the right direction.

    This is a great bill that I think has a legitiment chance of passing. It's sad that our best chance of passing such a bill, at least as far as PFZs are concerned, is to require even more training! Oh well it's not required to get your CPL unless you want to be exempt from the PFZs but still (of course OC is legal in those places). Overall a great bill that would greatly benefit CPL holders.

    Hope you're right.... However there's been bills set to eliminate PFZs in Michigan for years. Never makes it out of committee let alone pass.

    Just sayin..

    Worst case, if this doesn't pass, there's SB57, SB58, HB4009, HB4010, hopefully they won't go the way of HB4348, HB4760, HB4759, and the others...

    I don't think the other ones included extra training.

    Being able to carry in PFZs is a big deal for me. I have 4 school age kids and spend a lot of time in PFZs.

    I live in and go to PFZs everyday (college dorms and classrooms). Problem is they're not preempting colleges so I still wouldn't be able to carry concealed once I got my CPL because the school prohibits firearms on campus.

    It's just waiting for the governor's signature. The CT shooting has him dragging his feet.

    Not to mention all the people he pissed of with Right-to-Work. He will need those votes come re-election, too bad he pissed them away.

    The only PFZs in VT are schools and post offices. Any adult non-felon is free to CCW = no permits.
