    Where do you stand on restaurant/bar carry?

    Should CCL holders be allowed in bars and restaurants that serve alcohol, and if so can they drink? If so, how much is too much? If at all.

    My opinion is you can carry, just keep it to a drink or two.

    When I go to the bar, I legally carry. I normally only get one drink just to have something in my hand, and slowly drink it when I am with my roommates or friends

    Tennessee gun law has zero tolerance for drinking. So, it's a moot point in this state. We're working some bills through the legislature now about carrying where alcohol is served.

    As far as I'm concerned, if you have a valid permit, you should be allowed to carry anywhere.

    The idea that you go from normal to nuts when you enter a bar, post office, court house, or airport is just plain stupid. That's my opinion. Others have their own. Opinions are void where prohibited by law.

    What people don't understand is that laws are obeyed by law abiding citizens. The bad guy is going to carry anywhere he damned well pleases.

    So, let's disarm the law abiding citizens and just start a victim's roster.

    I think you should be able to carry in restaurants and bars. I think you should be able to have a drink as well. What I dont think should happen is you go out and get wasted while armed. I voted for a drink or two because I wouldnt want to put a BAC limit on it, but I think as a responsible gun owner you should be able to drink in moderation. Having a drink while at dinner shouldnt mean you have to give up your right to defend yourself.

    I believe in responsible gun ownership and responsible drinking. A drink or two shouldn't matter. But if one is planning on getting completely trashed then I would have to reccommend leaving the weapon at home or in the car.

    Not all people who drink are violent people and just because they choose to have a refreshing beer shouldn't mean that they can no longer arm themselves should the unfortunate happen.

    IF there is one and only one situation that I want the ability to CC it is when I go to a restaurant in the evening with my wife and now must negotiate the dark streets to my car. I would like to share a glass of wine or a beer (one drink) at that time. I would gladly give up all other opportunities to CC for this one situation.

    x2 and if even if you were allowed to drink any I wouldn't because if something happened (and if you KNEW nothing would happen you wouldn't need to be carrying in the first place) you'd want the responding officers to have you blow a .00 on the breathalyzer and record it so you can minimize any lawsuits after the fact. Anything more than .00 only gives a prosecutor time to filibuster a jury, even if you weren't intoxicated or "buzzed".

    Alcohol tends to bring out the worst in people, and the worst in people and being around many intoxicated individuals tends to create situations were you may need to defend yourself, in that situation I'd want every option available to me so that I can wake up the next day.

    Of course when choosing where to dine, making the choice to avoid problem places is part of it, but around here almost any non-fast food restaurant serves alcohol (even the family diners around here have an extensive selection) and about half of the restaurants are bars with a seating room. And for where I'm at state law says no carry if they serve alcohol on the premises.

    I don't drink, so bars are not an issue. If I carry into a restaurant that serves alcohol, I don't drink so it's not an issue there either.

    I have seen what drinking can do to your thinking process both in a motor vehicle and in making poor decisions for your well being during my time as an LEO.

    You should be able to do like here in Idaho, carry in bars and restaurants. The not being able to carry in restaurants that serve alcohol is the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. That means you can't go out to places like Chilis or Outback, etc.
    As far as bars go the designated driver still has a right to defend himself. Just don't drink while carrying while going there.
