FAQ: In Michigan, can you conceal carry in a restaurant that serves liquor?

Ask The Michigan Firearms Instructor

Q: Can you conceal carry in a restaurant that serves liquor?

A: A CPL-holder can't legally conceal carry in a bar in Michigan. A bar is a place which generates more than half of its revenue from the sale of alcohol by the glass which is to be consumed on the premises. However, a CPL-holder CAN legally conceal carry in a restaurant which serves alcohol. Moreover, please be mindful that CPL-holders can't drink alcohol while conceal carrying.

You are strongly encouraged to not only conduct your own independent research but to also consult with a competent and qualified attorney before acting upon any information in this article. Laws covering self-defense, lethal force, firearms, and the Michigan Concealed Pistol License and their enforcement are always subject to change due to laws being amended, politics conducted in the Prosecutor's Office, and election results at all levels of government. Ignorance of the law, legally speaking, is not a valid excuse for running afoul of it. The penalties and fines imposed upon violators of firearms related offenses are stiff and severe.
