Sober at a Party Where Alcohol is Served
Hypothetical question here that will probably get some mixed results, but healthy debate is why we're here!
I've never been much of a drinker--even in college, I just didn't see the point, and have never needed alcohol to have a good time. All my friends know this, and for this reason, I'm almost always the designated driver.
I would NEVER carry my gun while I've had any alcohol. For me, this is a no brainer, especially in Michigan where .02 BAC can get your CPL revoked for a year.
Say I went to a house party where alcohol was being served. I've had no drinks and don't plan on having any because I'm the DD. Am I legally allowed to carry?
Even if it is legal, I anticipate a lot of "it's not a good idea" responses, but IMO, just because others are drinking, my right to self-defense shouldn't be forfeited. Someone who is drunk can do just as much bodily harm to me as someone sober.
Looking forward to everyone's responses.
