Mississippi law allows it as long as the main purpose for the establishment is selling food. I have never seen any signage.
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Thomas Jefferson
Thanks Ya'll for your responses. With this being one of the hot topics in Tennessee right now I sort of figured that the editorials and letters to the editors of the local papers were just examples of wishfull thinking on the part of those who opposed this bill. I know when I have been in states where carry is allowed in restaurants that serve alcohol I had not seen any signs. And oh how nice it was to not have to leave my XD in the car.
If this doesn't pass the Senate, it will be the biggest shock in Tennessee political history. This bill has passed the Senate for the last 2 or 3 years with about a 90% majority. The trouble has always been the House. Now with Naifeh gone, things have changed.I have no idea when it goes before the Senate but I am pretty sure it will be met with plenty resistance.....We shall see....

hey everyone! I'm new to the forum and just got my CC license a couple of weeks ago. I'm from Maine, and I can't seem to find anywhere that describes the CC laws in black and white. Just basics, like where I can and can't carry. I know bars and federal buildings are off limits, but I'm sure there are others. Can someone help me out? Thanks!
Missouri statute reads as follows:
As long as the establishment makes 51% of it's annual income from the dining area it's ok to carry there.....No driver's license or nondriver's license containing a concealed carry endorsement issued pursuant to sections 571.101 to 571.121 or a concealed carry endorsement or permit issued by another state or political
subdivision of another state shall authorize any person to carry concealed firearms into:
(7) Any establishment licensed to dispense intoxicating liquor or nonintoxicating beer for consumption on the premises, which portion is primarily
devoted to that purpose, without the consent of the owner or manager. The provisions of this subdivision shall not apply to the licensee of said
establishment. The provisions of this subdivision shall not apply to any bona fide restaurant open to the general public having dining facilities for
not less than fifty persons and that receives at least fifty-one percent of its gross annual income from the dining facilities by the sale of food. This
subdivision does not prohibit the possession of a firearm in a vehicle on the premises of the establishment and shall not be a criminal offense so
long as the firearm is not removed from the vehicle or brandished while the vehicle is on the premises. Nothing in this subdivision authorizes any
individual who has been issued a concealed carry endorsement to possess any firearm while intoxicated;
Well VA does not allowed CC in restaurants that serve alcohol by the drink, but OC is allowed. I know, very stupid law. Owners are allowed to prohibit carrying if they choose to do so. Here in the Richmond area the only place I have come across that is posted is TGI Friday. Applebee, Ruby Tuesday, Chili's, Texas Roadhouse are not posted. When the wife and I go to one of those locations I simply do the VA tuck and go about my business.
Open carry has always been traditional in Montana, but it was never actually codified by statute. Now it is.
So yes, we can OC in places that serve alcohol, but if the owner or manager asks us to leave, we must do so.
Concealed carry is still prohibited.

Cracker barrel don't serve alcohol does it??? I hope Arizona passes that law someday,.. Soon too.....
Yup always have to my knowledge.

Yes, as long as it is an actual restaurant and not a bar that sells food. The thing to look for in TX, other than a proper 30.06 sign would be a 51% sign, no signs and you are good to go.

As has been stated here in FL you can carry in a restaurant. I can't remember seeing a no guns sign at any restaurant, the big chains or even small individual owned places. I have heard of applebees in some states being anti but not here in the Gunshine State.

Michigan, As long as it is a Restaurant and not a bar and YOU ARE NOT DRINKING you can carry. So Red Lobster, Applebees, Ruby Tuesday's Etc is fine here.
We are good to go in Mass. very few restrictions in this liberal state on where you can or can't carry.
