I open carried at the Grand Haven Walmart today. No CPL, but I have a permission slip. No issues.

Likely he means he has written permission from the store manager to open carry there with no CPL (a CPL is required due to their liquor license).

I carry a gun because a Police Officer is too heavy.

That's exactly right. The law says you just need permission, but I got it in writing to be safer.

I do not understand why anyone would go to such an extent to ask for written permission from the manager to carry in the store.

That is because you do not fully understand MI law. Read 750.234d again and pay special attention to the exceptions to the firearm free zones.

I expect you will then understand why a person without a CPL would need permission.

Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

This is really good know! I had no idea about this, that's why I'm still in the "studying" phase of OC'ing.
