If I understand it correctly, MI carry permit is CPL. CCW refers to the criminal act of carrying concealed weapon without a license.

I'm not sure if that's entirely true,I have even heard law enforcement refer to a CPL as a CCW,a CCW is kind of a generic term refering to a CPL,a CHL,CWP etc etc.

They are just abbreviations, CCW=conceal carry weapon...CCP=conceal carry permit...CCL=conceal carry license.. We should all know what each other is talking about.

check over at the mi gun owners forum, I believe the CCW is the criminal side of illegal conceal carry, because the license to carry is the CPL. Different states have different abbreviations.

It is called CHP here ( concealed handgun permit). Kinda confusing when the state cops also are called CHP ( Colorado highway patrol)

Whatever it's called, it's an oxymoron, a contradiction in terms, like "congressional intelligence" committee. Since the Constitution already recognizes the God-given right to bear arms, a "permit" or "license" to exercise those rights doesn't make sense. If someone commits a crime and therefore relenquishes that right there is ample documentation in police files to that effect. The average law-abiding citizen should not have to beg for permission to do what is already understood. The permit does, however save a lot of time and trouble when a police officer stops someone who is carrying. Maybe that's what it is really about. ???

The term CCW originally stood for carrying a concealed weapon, a crime. Its like B&E, DUI, DWI, etc.

Its now become analogous to CHP, CCL, LTCF, etc, meaning the permit that gives you permission to carry the gun.
