Michigan CPL Class FAQ: How Soon After A DV Conviction Can A Personal Qualify For A CPL?

Ask The Michigan Firearms Instructor
Q: I have a friend who got a domestic violence (DV) conviction about three years ago when three guys came on to his property and started a fight which he finished. One ended up being taking to the hospital and the other two hid in the car until the police showed up. My question is if you have a DV in Michigan can you get a purchase permit? And can you open carry? And can you get a CPL after 8 years?

A: If a person has a domestic violence (DV) conviction, he has lost his right to own, carry, or possess a firearm. After five years, a person, if eligible, can receive a "set-aside" and have that conviction erased which will restore his firearm rights. At that point, if otherwise eligible, can get a Pistol Purchase Permit, can OC, and can get a CPL.

An experienced attorney can advise you on the expungement process.

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.
