and many are not even licensed to practice in Federal court! It's normally a Fed case if it's a Class III item, the state is happy to pass such stuff on to the Feds, and BATFE has nothing much to do to justify their salaries (for a fact, Jack!) So you are probably wasting your time/money (and perhaps risking your freedom) to ask "gun questions" of a local attorney! If he is honest, he'll tell you to seek someone else as an advisor, but many will just take your money!

Good point.
If you ahve a lawyer you ahve used for awhile he will take this an opportunity to school himself abit.
He'll charge u for same of his self training ( research) but not all of it if you have a standing relationship.

Funny you should bring this up today :)

Last night at the end of a long session with my attorney, we started talking about firearms. He was for awhile my small town's prosecutor. He put on a training class for the LEO's and shared his presentation. WRONG WRONG WRONG! So, together we went to the state law and I pointed out where he missed a couple of very important words. He asked, how the heck did you get to understand the law in that level of detail. It became an obsession of mine to learn that one group of laws!

In MI, CPL instructors teach crap, LEO's learn crap, and too many attorney's advise crap. MI firearm laws are SCREWY.

Ignorance of the law.
We are prosecuted if we don't know the law and break one.
They try to enforce the laws that they do not have a good understanding of.

Knowledge is power.

My rule for people seeking gun info/help is to disregard what your cop or lawyer buddy says because lawyers don't know gun laws, cops have no idea what they're talking about when it comes to guns, ask someone at a gun shop

My non lawyer advice...you have the right to remain silent. Use it until your lawyer that specializes in firearms is present. Join a local 2A organization as most provide this service to members. If all else fails call Evan Nappen.
