Defending the Rights of Gun Owners

Several years ago, Michigan adopted a "shall issue" rule regarding the issuance of licenses to carry a concealed pistol. Despite this fact, your license to carry can be revoked if you are accused or convicted of a crime. In other cases, bureaucratic snafus and outright abuses by government officials can deny you your right to carry a firearm. In these situations, an experienced attorney may be able to preserve or restore your right to carry.

At the Law Office of John Freeman, we are strong advocates for Michigan gun owners. Our firm works to protect and restore the CPL/CCW licenses of people in the Detroit area and throughout Michigan. We will use our knowledge and experience to protect your rights.

Representing You Before the Concealed Weapons Board

You do not have to commit a crime to lose your CPL. Even having a blood alcohol content of .02 may be enough to lead to the suspension of your license. Conviction on a criminal charge can lead to the revocation of your CPL.

If your license is suspended or revoked, the Law Office of John Freeman can help you assert your rights and protect your license.

In making the decision to seek a hearing before your local board, there are some important things to consider. In cases involving a criminal charge, it may be better for you to accept a temporary suspension rather than fighting it immediately. We can discuss the legal aspects of your case so that you can make the decision that is right for you.

Gun boards have tremendous power. Often times they deny law abiding citizens the ability to exercise the right to self-defense. County gun boards do this by denying a concealed pistol license to an otherwise eligible person. If you are a legally eligible person that has been denied a concealed pistol license, the Law Office of John Freeman can help you secure your right to carry a concealed pistol by representing you before your local county gun board. Do not delay in calling us. Do not appear before the gun board alone. Do not wait for a second permit denial before contacting an experienced firearms attorney. Increase your chances of obtaining your CPL and exercising your right to self defense by calling a firearms attorney today.

FFLs and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE)

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) regulates the sale and transfer of firearms by licensed gun dealers (FFLs) with complex and technical rules and regulations. Violations of these rules can lead to a variety of sanctions, including the inability to legally sell firearms, and even criminal charges.
