I have trouble understanding why vehicle height is regulated in a parking spot. To a degree I can understand restricting length in spots where large vehicles would obstruct the flow of traffic but height seems irrelevant so I guess that is why it maters to our elected officials.

I'll be doing it soon enough and here in Michigan it just sucks to do. It's handled differently in every county and of course the county I live in is the worst. In Kent county the local gun board thinks no one should have a CCW at all so they drag there feet as much as possible. Some people it takes 4 weeks some others 4 month.

Here in Michigan it was a nightmare. It was handled by local gun boards by county and in Kent county the gun board I swear thought no one should have a CPL. Up until just recently first timer could wait 10-16 weeks and renewal at least 4 weeks. Now it being handled by the State Police and it's a fast process. And it's good for 5 years but the cost has gone up to $140 plus you bring a passport grade photo in.

$140 to exercise your right. Surprised they don't have a free speech permit.

Heard the other day Snohomish County (Just north of Seattle) has been processing 50 a day. King County (Seattle area to the mountains) had 98 in November and so far 770 this month. Seattle resedents go to the Seattle Police. Trying to verify the 770 number, heard it in an interview with the Sheriff.

I'm sure if our Idiot of a Governor had though of a free speech permit or tax we'd have it.
He has raised taxes on the poor and elderly and gave huge tax cuts to his rich buddies.
In Michigan you are taxed differently based on your age.

Free Speech permits

In my neck of the woods we've had no gun boards & now no gun boards at all for anyone. I've never found the process cumbersome.

Per the NRA,

"Tomorrow, December 1, the primary components of NRA-backed Senate Bill 34 and Senate Bill 35 will take effect. As a result, the county concealed pistol licensing boards will be eliminated and the licensing process for statutorily eligible Michiganders will become markedly more efficient, expedient and uniform.

With the elimination of the county concealed weapon licensing boards, county clerks will now administer the concealed pistol licensing process. Background checks that are statutorily required to obtain a concealed pistol license (CPL) will be conducted by the Michigan State Police (MSP). However, the MSP will not retain the discretionary authority formerly held by the county licensing boards since the law mandates that all persons who statutorily qualify for a CPL (i.e. not prohibited under 28.425b and satisfy all financial and submission obligations) shall receive a license."

The new licensing process also provides enhanced avenues for redressing licensing delays. As of December 1, the county clerks and MSP have 45 days—beginning on the date fingerprints are taken—to either issue a CPL or provide a notice of disqualification. If the licensing authority fails to comply with the 45-day requirement, the individual’s fingerprint receipt and driver’s license will serve as a temporary license. For renewals, the expired license will serve as the temporary license."

From the 1967 Employment Act:

It shall be unlawful for an employer-

(1) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual or otherwise discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual’s age;

(2) to limit, segregate, or classify his employees in any way which would deprive or tend to deprive any individual of employment opportunities or otherwise adversely affect his status as an employee, because of such individual’s age; or

(3) to reduce the wage rate of any employee in order to comply with this chapter

If you own a company you can't differentiate between age classes but guess that doesn't apply to government.

3 years went by quickly. We went in the county police HQ & signed up, after a 10 min. wait, we got called up to fill out the basic boring form & turned them in & she said wait 5 min. & I will have your new cards. We, in the past, had to go to the DMV to get a card similar to our drivers lisence. They now have a specific CCW card & it last 5 years! All for 20 minutes & $40 each.

Then we go across the street to my car & I have a $15 ticket on my car for parking in a compact car spot for cars under 60 inches high! Mine is 68"
The renewal costs us twice as much in NC and it may take months to receive.
It's really a huge PITA here.

Here if you ally for renewal your old permit is good until you get your new one or a denial letter.
Even if it's past the expiration date on the card.
That's the law here.

I need to renew mine soon. A couple months.
5 years flew by!

No permit required but sentences are limited to six words.
