    Carry around alcohol?

    so how many states do not allow carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol? i have seen some posts about no carry around alcohol.
    i checked with my sheriff and was told that colorado has no law to not allow carry in a bar.
    he just stated that you must be under the legal limit. i do not drink so that is not a big deal.

    i did spend three hours on sunday at the brewfest checking out the bands and people watching with some friends. (of course packing)
    have never been around so many drunk people while packing. felt a little nervous at first, but felt ok after i had pased three sets of police.

    I have had a drink or a beer while carrying as in one.
    (1) for me is no problem.

    Usually when I am out to dinner & with my meal.

    I do not go to bars to drink.

    I never drink to get drunk & I am a Big Boy now.

    It's nice to have a brew with dinner.

    Drunk (as in smashed) people are almost always a social turn off to me so I try to avoid them.

    I wish I could carry in a bar. I make deliveries to them and have to disarm everytime I go in. Just a PITA.

    MI has a 51% rule. If a majority of its profits are from alcohol consumed on the premises, no carry. They term it "bar or tavern" in the statutes, but I do the name game. If the name of the restaruant is a bar's name like Midway Bar, but serves bar food, no carry. If the name is The Michigan House, it is a restaraunt that serves alcohol and is OK to carry in.

    Ohio prohibits carry in any establishment with a class D license that serves liquor on premises. Carry-outs, convenient stores and grocery stores have mistakenly posted the obsolete Dept. of Liquor Control signs that say "If you are carrying a firearm in this establishment" signs -- not applicable, as grocery stores, convenient stores and carry-outs generally aren't serving liquor by the drink.

    In GA, one cannot carry "to" or "at" an establishment that sells alcohol for consumtion on the premises.

    Legally, I have to leave my gun all the way back at home if I go to eat at Applebee's.

    In Ohio you can not carry in any establishment that serves alcohol. Not just bars but restaurants too. So Ohio is like Georgia, if your favorite Applebees has a bar and serves beer then you can't carry in there. But you can leave it locked in the car, not all the way back home. Hopefully this is one of the things that will be changed in the fall when the legislators get back to work.

    Personally, if I am going to enjoy an adult beverage I put the guns away. If I'm sitting around the house in the evening and want to have a nice drink I take my CCW off and lock it away.

    In PA

    In PA there are no restaurant, bars, or 51% carry restrictions.
    There are shootings that happen in and outside of bars in Pittsburgh and most of those are probably somehow alcohol, drug or "combination of both" consumption related ~ FORTUNATELY NONE of them are committed with legally licensed to carry firearms.
    They are all with unregistered illegally carried firearms hauled around by life~loser type individuals.

    In Virginia you can open carry in a resturaunt that serves alcohol but not concealed. I'm not sure whether you can still consume or not. My guess would be no (it's a guess only take it for what it's worth). Since I don't drink it doesn't bother me.

    You cannot carry in any establishment that serves alcohol for on-site consumption here in TN, which is a shame, because I enjoy eating out and I don't drink.

    Apparently they think all carrypermit holders are going to forgo common sense, get drunk and shoot everybody, or that we're just not allowed to defend ourselves against violent drunks we encounter there ("he was a good boy, it was just the bottle that made him slap people around").

    Drinking and firearms are two areas that require a great deal of personal responsibility.

    While I can understand that one drink may have little to no effect on a person, someone who has had even one drink will be eyed extremely suspiciously when involved in an altercation, especially if it involves firearms, so it's best that firearms and alcohol don't mix at all!

    In MA, the ONLY alcohol related restriction is that you can not be in possession of firearms if you are "under the influence". I can live with that.
