Michigan Concealed Pistol License Tip: Be Mindful Of What You Publish Online

Michigan Concealed Pistol License Tip: Michigan Concealed Pistol License Tip: Be mindful of what you post online via social media. Comments made online can be readily taken out of context and attributed to you under less than desirable circumstances.

For example, if a CPL-holder makes a lot of online statements about what he or she might do under certain circumstances - such as while being criminally attacked - those words could be used to paint an unflattering characterization. 

In this current technological era, law enforcement agencies are increasingly scrutinizing personal social media pages during their criminal investigations. So, while it is true that the totality of the circumstance should be given due consideration, CPL-holders should exercise restraint regarding their response to hypothetical scenarios. 

In short, don't give law enforcement any reason to view you as anything other than a law-abiding citizen who was attacked without provocation.
