In Michigan, it is against the law to conceal a firearm unless you have a concealed pistol license. Carrying a concealed weapon is a serious felony. How do you get a firearm around if you don’t have a concealed weapons permit? You need to do what’s called “open carry.” Note: There is no such thing as open carry in a car or vehicle. But when you’re not in a car, the firearm must be carried in a way that is visible to others. This might sound counter-intuitive but that’s the law. You’re supposed to carry the firearm in a way that others can see. Read our legal article on open carry in Michigan.
