I'm a big one on "any confrontation with me is an armed confrontation", because I am always carrying.
Well tonight I decided to go drinking with a friend and left my 9mm at home. Told the wife, "there is a 9mm right here all you have to do is pull the trigger"......and off I went.
In New Mexico it is illegal to take a firearm into any place that sells alcohol. This means that I am commiting a felony crime, as a concealed carry licenced citizen, carrying my weapon into a quicky mart to buy a coke, if it sells alcohol.......and they mosty all do.
Any hows, we consumed two pitchers of beer, and then rode our bicycles home.
I carry every day, and don't feel that even though I am impaired, that I would act any different then if I was not impaired. I would only draw as a last resort in a worst case scenario.
I guess that not everyone is like me though, and that we basically can't trust people to control themselves with firearms and a normal part of life; alcohol.
Venting the rational of when and where it is legal to carry.
