He knows that. The man in the report has his CPL as well.

This article reminds me of the guy who got arrested in GH at the 2009(?) Coast Guard for open carry. He sued for IIRC $500,000 and was awarded $250,000 or something like that.

Let me be very clear (because I don't want this to turn into a flame fest) that if I ever got a Gun to carry I would get a CPL and make sure I was comfortable with it before it even went out into public.....I just think this law is kind of unique.
Yup, so long as you don't carry it into No-Gun zones (schools, federal banks, etc.)

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I was told (from a State Cop) the reason its legal is not because there is a law saying you can open carry, but there is no law that says you can't.

I think it would depend on the campground (private or state).

As for your quad, it depends on where you are riding it. Private Property - you don't need a CCW.

You make a good point, but the guy in the article has his CPL, so even if the gun did get covered by his coat or whatever, he is still legal.

IMO that is the way to go. I would still get a CPL if I wanted to carry openly.

Hey if you see that douchebag in a red car that chased school kids two days in a row in Auburn Hills (Square Lk and Squirrel), test out your accuracy for us
