    Restaurant carry by state

    So far the only shall issue state I can seem to pin down as a state that allows restaurant (that serve alcohol) carry is Pennsylvania. It seems as if most states disallow any kind of carry in establishments that serve alcohol. What other states allow it?

    Washington is OK. You cannot carry into a bar or bar area of a restaurant (any place restricted to over 21), but you can carry into the restaurant area even if they serve alcohol.

    From the Kansas Atty General's office

    In Kansas it's not a bar if 51% of business is food, and now the establishments are required to post, so the guesswork is gone. We can carry most places that serve food and booze. Below is a cut and paste of the law.



    The requirements for “no concealed carry” signage also changed with the
    passage of HB 2528. In order to bring charges of unlawful concealed
    carry against a licensee, those properties previously enumerated under
    K.S.A. 75-7c10 (schools, bars, churches, school & professional athletic
    events, churches, etc.) must now be posted. One exception to this is the
    provision regarding carrying in or on areas prohibited by Federal law;
    these areas are under no obligation to post their properties.

    What about Kentucky? I was wondering about that scenario. Glad somebody brought it up as a topic thread. Hopefully you can in the Bluegrass state. Looking forward to the answer.

    VA conceal carry is not legal in resturants that sell alcoholic beverages, but open carry is legal.

    here in maine, you carry anywhere (except federally prohibited, obviously). restaurants are no problem. bars are no problem (unless posted), but BA level needs to be .07% or below.

    In Texas we can carry in a restaurant as long as it does not generate more than 51% of it's income from the sales of on-premesis alcohol sales (bar usually). They must post a 51% sign, some don't though.

    A place of business that derives 51% or more of its income from the sale or service of alcoholic beverages for on
    premises consumption

    No bars or areas of restaurants specifically for alcohol consumption (bar area).

    any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which
    portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to such purpose

    Oregon has a surprisingly good set of laws, nothing restricting restaurant carry or alcohol areas, there is the standard private property/business abililty to post no gun signs. I was pretty amazed happy about the lack of anti-gun carry laws here.

    NH - carry is allowed in bars and restaurants.

    MA - carry is allowed in bars and restaurants. ONLY restriction is that if your BAC is 0.08% or greater and you are in possession of any weapon, you will face specific charges and lose your right to carry for life.
