Sec. 8. (1) The county clerk in the county in which a license was issued to an individual to carry a concealed pistol shall suspend, revoke, or reinstate a license as required under this act if ordered by a court or if the county clerk is notified of a change in the licensee’s eligibility to carry a concealed pistol under this act.

(2) Except as provided in subsections (3) or (4), a license shall not be suspended or revoked under this section except upon written complaint and an opportunity to request the county clerk to conduct a review of that suspension or revocation.

(3) If an individual licensed to carry a concealed pistol is charged with a felony or misdemeanor as defined in this act, the court shall immediately order the county clerk in the county in which the license to carry a concealed pistol was issued to suspend the individual’s license until there is a final disposition of the charge for that offense. The court shall notify the county clerk of each statutory provision with which the individual has been charged. The county clerk shall send notice by first-class mail in a sealed envelope of that suspension to the individual’s last known address as indicated in the records of the county clerk.

The county clerk shall suspend, revoke, or reinstate the license as required under this act and immediately send notice of the suspension, revocation, or reinstatement under this subsection by first-class mail in a sealed envelope to the individual’s last known address as indicated on the records of the county clerk. The notice shall include the statutory reason for the suspension, revocation, or reinstatement, the source of the record supporting the suspension, revocation, or reinstatement, the length of the suspension or revocation, and whom to contact for correcting errors in the record, appealing the suspension or revocation, and reapplying for that individual’s license. The department of state police shall immediately enter that suspension, revocation, or reinstatement into the law enforcement information network. The requirements of subsection (2) do not apply to this subsection.

(5) If a suspension is imposed under this section, the suspension shall be for a period stated in years, months, or days, or until the final disposition of the charge, and shall state the date the suspension will end, if applicable. The licensee shall promptly surrender his or her license to the county clerk after being notified that his or her license has been revoked or suspended. An individual who fails to surrender 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.

The county clerk shall not charge a fee for the reinstatement of a license under this subsection.

(8) If the court orders a county clerk to suspend, revoke, or reinstate a license under this section or amends a suspension, revocation, or reinstatement order, the county clerk shall immediately notify the department of state police in a manner prescribed by the department of state police. The department of state police shall enter the order or amended order into the law enforcement information network.

(9) A suspension or revocation order or amended order issued under this section is immediately effective. However, an individual is not criminally liable for violating the order or amended order unless he or she has received notice of the order or amended order.

(10) If an individual is carrying a pistol in violation of a suspension or revocation order or amended order issued under this section but has not previously received notice of the order or amended order, the individual shall be informed of the order or amended order and be given an opportunity to properly store the pistol or otherwise comply with the order or amended order before an arrest is made for carrying the pistol in violation of this act.

(11) If a law enforcement agency or officer notifies an individual of a suspension or revocation order or amended order issued under this section who has not previously received notice of the order or amended order, the law enforcement agency or officer shall enter a statement into the law enforcement information network that the individual has received notice of the order or amended order under this section.
