    Roundballer is correct and in the end it's both what is and what is not brandishing.

    These bills will hopefully cement AG 7101. Right now law enforcement and the courts may, but do not have to, follow 7101. If everything is cemented into a statute, it will be clearer to everyone, and will leave less wiggle room for those looking for a way to pushing people for doing something they personally do not approve of.

    Called my reps and shared with followers. It would be nice to see clear definitions instead of interpretation.

    Would this become the first law that specifically codifies open carry (in Michigan)?

    Ahh indeed it does in the second.
    I scanned it too quick and overlooked it.

    I think no. Moreover, if they finally decided to write a bill that actually describes brandishing, how far behind can a bill be that specifically codifies OC? Perhaps with some less than desirable language?
