I want to be able to carry anywhere
What state, what restrictions?
Become an LEO, there is no CCW out there that allows you to carry "anywhere".
going to need a few more details
There are certain federal restrictions as that no state can override. If you want to carry everywhere, find a local police department that will let sponsor you as a reserve officer. Usually you will have to work 8-16 hours a month for free and they will sponsor your peace officer license. You will have to take a number of classes at a local community college and pass all the background, psychological and physical tests. Then you can carry as a peace officer that is off duty. You still cannot carry on a plane, nuclear facility and a host of other critical infrastructure locations, but pretty much everywhere else.
I had a firearm restriction on my background check, since I was 15 yrs old. I didn't know until I went to purchase my Glock this past February. I am now 22, so in those 7 years I have not had any law enforcement contact and have been free of trouble.
I had to contact the CIB (crime information bureau) to find out why. 2 weeks later they sent me a list of offenses I had when I was a juvenile and one was OWI hit and run causing injury to a minor, class f felony I believe.
I was drunk, crashed into a tree and my friend was the passenger and hit his head on the windshield causing a scratch on his forehead. I took off and was subdued a block away. I was 14 turning 15 and a dumbass.
I have change my ways of living and thinking since then.
Back to the process, I then wrote the judge, who replaced the judge that handled my case and asked that she lifted the restriction. I gave her details as to why I wanted to own a gun and how I have changed my life since then.
5 days later I received a letter with a court appearance date. I attended the hearing and was granted my rights back.
The total time, from when I started the process until I was able to purchase the gun, was 2 months.
This is in WI, and depending on the reason you have restrictions may play into a longer waiting period.
My brother went through the same process and didn't receive a letter from a judge for 6 months. Then they told him they wanted him to wait a total of ten years from the original case date, without any police contact, which was 3 more years.
I went for my ccw class a month after getting my gun and received my license within 9 days of turning in my application. I love WI.
The reason I ask is because I heard it was a class you can take to lift some of the restrictions I live in mi
Contact you're county courthouse. Or the police station and ask.
I live in MI and I believe there is a bill pending that would allow CPL holders to carry in historically pistol-free zones only after additional training and certification...beyond what you get to obtain a regular CPL.
At this point, I am not sure where that stands.
Edit: this is what I was referring to. This article is a few months old though...
I hope it does sign me up
