I heard a new gun law in MI. was suppose to go through where you would beable to carry your hand gun on your hip while driving or in your car in Michigan. since it is still visable on your side. I know they say it is concealed since your in your car but, most stories i here are people getting held up /robbed ,car jacked while in there car. and its not like the person is going to whait for you to go to your trunk grab your gun then go to your glove box grab your ammo then load your clip then defend yourself.

anyone else see the big prob here and can someone let me know if a new law has come into effect. I've checked and cant find a thing.

The examples you posted are some of the reasons this restriction must be eliminated. Unfortunately, there are no new statutes which address this need.

Michigan entered a new legislative session for 2009, and all proposed legislation which had been sitting in committees are defunct, and would have to be reintroduced as new bills.

I'm assuming you aretalking about if youdo not have a CPL. If you don't have a CPL you still have to have the gun unloaded and in the trunk, etc. I'm not aware of any changes or proposed changes in the law in this regard.

If you have a CPL you can OC in a car.
