pistol. If the applicant holds a valid concealed pistol license

fingerprints are taken. The county clerk, department of state

 

police, county sheriff, local police agency, or other entity shall

 

not provide a receipt under this subsection unless the individual

 

requesting the fingerprints provides an application receipt

 

received under subsection (1). A receipt under this subsection must

 

contain all of the following:

 

     (a) The name of the individual.

 

     (b) The date and time the receipt is issued.

of 1927 PA 372, MCL 28.425b, if a license or notice of statutory

 

disqualification is not issued within 45 days after the date this

 

receipt was issued, this receipt shall serve as a concealed pistol

 

license for the individual named in the receipt when carried with

 

an official state-issued driver license or personal identification


card. The receipt is valid as a license until a license or notice

 

of statutory disqualification is issued by the county clerk. This

 

receipt does not exempt the individual named in the receipt from

 

complying with all applicable laws for the purchase of firearms.".

 

     (10) The fingerprints must be taken, under subsection (9), in

 

a manner prescribed by the department of state police. The county

 

clerk, county sheriff, local police agency, or other entity shall

 

immediately forward the fingerprints taken by that entity to the

 

department of state police for comparison with fingerprints already

 

on file with the department of state police. The department of

 

state police shall immediately forward the fingerprints to the

 

Federal Bureau of Investigation. Within 5 business days after

 

completing the verification under subsection (6), the department

 

shall send the county clerk a list of an individual's statutory

 

disqualifications under this act. Except as provided in section

 

5a(4), the county clerk shall not issue a concealed pistol license

 

until he or she receives the report of statutory disqualifications

 

prescribed in this subsection. If an individual's fingerprints are

 

not classifiable, the department of state police shall, at no

 

charge, take the individual's fingerprints again or provide for the

 

comparisons under this subsection to be conducted through

 

alternative means. The county clerk shall not issue a notice of

 

statutory disqualification because an individual's fingerprints are

 

not classifiable by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

 

     (11) The county clerk shall send by first-class mail a notice

 

of statutory disqualification for a license under this act to an

 

individual if the individual is not qualified under subsection (7)


to receive that license.

 

     (12) A license to carry a concealed pistol that is issued

 

based upon an application that contains a material false statement

 

is void from the date the license is issued.

 

     (13) Subject to subsection (10), the department of state

 

police shall complete the verification required under subsection

 

(6) and the county clerk shall issue a license or a notice of

 

statutory disqualification within 45 days after the date the

 

individual has classifiable fingerprints taken under subsection

 

(9). The county clerk shall include an indication on the license if

 

an individual is exempt from the prohibitions against carrying a

 

concealed pistol on premises described in section 5o if the

 

applicant provides acceptable proof that he or she qualifies for

 

that exemption. If the county clerk receives notice from a county

 

sheriff or chief law enforcement officer that a licensee is no

 

longer a member of a sheriff's posse, an auxiliary officer, or a

 

reserve officer, the county clerk shall notify the licensee that he

 

or she shall surrender the concealed pistol license indicating that

 

the individual is exempt from the prohibitions against carrying a

 

concealed pistol on premises described in section 5o. The licensee

 

shall, within 30 days after receiving notice from the county clerk,

 

surrender the license indicating that the individual is exempt from

 

the prohibitions against carrying a concealed pistol on premises

 

described in section 5o and obtain a replacement license after

 

paying the fee required under subsection (15). If the county clerk

 

issues a notice of statutory disqualification, the county clerk

 

shall within 5 business days do all of the following:


     (a) Inform the individual in writing of the reasons for the

 

denial or disqualification. Information under this subdivision

 

shall must include all of the following:

 

     (i) A statement of each statutory disqualification identified.

     (c) Inform the individual that he or she should contact the

 

source of the record for any statutory disqualification to correct

 

any errors in the record resulting in the statutory

 

disqualification.

 

     (14) If a license or notice of statutory disqualification is

 

not issued under subsection (13) within 45 days after the date the

 

individual has classifiable fingerprints taken under subsection

 

(9), the receipt issued under subsection (9) serves as a concealed

 

pistol license for purposes of this act when carried with a state-

 

issued driver license or personal identification card and is valid

 

until a license or notice of statutory disqualification is issued

 

by the county clerk.

 

     (15) If an individual licensed under this act to carry a

 

concealed pistol moves to a different county within this state, his

 

or her license remains valid until it expires or is otherwise

 

suspended or revoked under this act. An individual may notify a


county clerk that he or she has moved to a different address within

 

this state for the purpose of receiving the notice under section

 

5l(1). A license to carry a concealed pistol that is lost, stolen,

 

defaced, or replaced for any other reason may be replaced by the

 

issuing county clerk for a replacement fee of $10.00. A county

 

clerk shall deposit a replacement fee under this subsection in the

 

concealed pistol licensing fund of that county created in section

 

5x.

 

     (16) If a license issued under this act is suspended or

 

revoked, the license is forfeited and the individual shall return

 

the license to the county clerk forthwith by mail or in person. The

 

county clerk shall retain a suspended or revoked license as an

 

official record 1 year after the expiration of the license, unless

 

the license is reinstated or a new license is issued. The county

 

clerk shall notify the department of state police if a license is

 

suspended or revoked. The department of state police shall enter

 

that suspension or revocation into the law enforcement information

 

network. An individual who fails to return a license as required

 

under this subsection after he or she was notified that his or her

 

license was suspended or revoked is guilty of a misdemeanor

 

punishable by imprisonment for not more than 93 days or a fine of

 

not more than $500.00, or both.

 

     (17) An applicant or an individual licensed under this act to

 

carry a concealed pistol may be furnished a copy of his or her

 

application under this section upon request and the payment of a

 

reasonable fee not to exceed $1.00. The county clerk shall deposit

license under this act shall mail the license to the licensee by

 

first-class mail in a sealed envelope. Upon payment of the fee

 

under subsection (15), a county clerk shall issue a replacement

 

license in person at the time of application for a replacement

 

license. A county clerk may also deliver a replacement license by

 

first-class mail if the individual submits to the clerk a written

 

request and a copy of the individual's state-issued driver license

 

or personal identification card.

 

     (20) A county clerk, county sheriff, county prosecuting

 

attorney, police department, or the department of state police is

 

not liable for civil damages as a result of issuing a license under

 

this act to an individual who later commits a crime or a negligent

 

act.

 

     (21) An individual licensed under this act to carry a

 

concealed pistol may voluntarily surrender that license without

 

explanation. A county clerk shall retain a surrendered license as

 

an official record for 1 year after the license is surrendered. If

 

an individual voluntarily surrenders a license under this

 

subsection, the county clerk shall notify the department of state

 

police. The department of state police shall enter into the law

 

enforcement information network that the license was voluntarily


surrendered and the date the license was voluntarily surrendered.
