    Every state has different laws/rules...try handgunlaws or google the state on CCW rules.

    As a former waiter, I'd refuse to serve alcohol to anyone that was open carrying. It'd be irresponsible of me. Now, I personally wouldn't do it, but I have no problem with anyone having a drink while carrying.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    In FL one can have a drink and carry, just not in the bar part of a restaurant (as in the restaurant part of Applebee's)...but you can't sit in the bar part of a Applebee's to have a burger without drinking and be armed.
    Don't know who wrote that law, but it beats a lot of other states.

    I find it varies by state, and Retsupt becareful on that one. There has been a LEO and Judge that interpret that part a little differantly.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Do you have a cite for that? I'd be interested in reading about that. The statute is very clear as I read it.

    Dont have a cite, the guy was later found not guilty. I have family in law enforcement, and it got passed around the LEO's. Thats how I know about it. But the guy was charged, and went to trial I do know, and found not guilty.

    What was the beef? Was he at the bar and carrying or in the restaurant portion drinking and carrying?

    In Tennessee, § 39-17-1321 states that you cannot be under the influence.

    39-17-1321. Possession of handgun while under influence — Penalty. —

    (a) Notwithstanding whether a person has a permit issued pursuant to § 39-17-1315 or § 39-17-1351, it is an offense for a person to possess a handgun while under the influence of alcohol or any controlled substance.

    (b) A violation of this section is a Class A misdemeanor.
