Senate Bill 59 has made it's way to Snyder's desk and we are hopeful it will pass. The bill will:
  1. Help streamline the CPL process by requiring the "licensing authority" to issue or deny a license within 45 days of the application being submitted. If they fail to do so you will have some of your application fee returned and the county clerk shall issue a temporary permit within 10 days.
  2. Allows concealed carry in current pistol free zones by obtaining extra training. The extra training is the NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home course. This bill also prohibits open carry in all places listed as current pistol free zones with or without the extra training.


This is the language of the bill:

Snyder will pass it, there's no doubt about it. I mean, all things considering, hes probably one of the most Pro gun Governors we've had. Question, how much would this extra training cost roughly?

You're joking right? I don't know how much it will cost to be honest. You'll need to look it up. I'm guessing $100 on a pretty low end, up to probably $200 and everywhere in the middle.
 
Synder has already stated he will sign it. This bill does a good job of correcting some overlap between open carry and concealed carry, and sets limits on costs, turn around time, and eliminating arbitrary county boards after April. I will get the extra training and apply for the pistol free zone exemption as soon as I can.
 
Just wondering how this type of law might have helped in some of the recent school and other shootings.

First off, it would allow persons with extra training to carry concealed in the schools, and no longer makes it a "pistol free zone," as long as you have the required state training, I assume, you can get the Pistol Free Zone box checked on your CPL.

So, the way I understand this, if I get the training, say, as soon as it comes out, I can immediately start conceal carrying in Pistol Free Zones?

No. You must get the training then on May 1 (or later) apply to be exempt from PFZs. It will cost $20. They will issue you a new permit that has the check box marked. You will mail back your CPL that has the box unchecked. You cannot carry concealed into a PFZ until you obtain a CPL with the checkbox marked.
