Carrying a Concealed Weapon in Michigan
Our client is not licensed to carry on concealed weapon; instead he chooses to open carry. The problem with open carrying when you do not have a concealed weapons license is that there is no open carry in a vehicle.
The law states that a person who is transporting a gun for lawful purpose must have the gun unloaded, broken down, in a closed case, in the trunk (if there is no trunk then it must not be easily accessible to people in the vehicle.
In this particular case our client was at the Somerset Mall in Troy. the weapon was not in a closed case. Our client was lawfully stopped, arrested, and charged.
The case started at the 52-4 District Court in Troy but was bound over after a preliminary examination to the Oakland County Circuit Court.
A conviction for CCW is a 5-year felony, with thousands of dollars in fines; there was a lot on the line for this person.
