I took my wife on a date last week to a restaurant, while armed.
Nobody was harmed and I being an _adult_ made the personal choice to order no alcohol along with my food...Not that as much is at all necessary anyway.
People think that if by walking by/not a restaurant or bar you will then suddenly be compelled to have to drink some amount of alcohol.
That is an individual choice and mental weakness, as there is no physical/biological requirement for a human being to imbibe alcohol. Zero.
I've been carrying into restaurants, bars, pool halls as well as bowling alleys and other such establishments for five years now in MA being among others who drink including those I'm with/meeting....And never ever have I been subject to mandatory drinking of alcohol. Never.
Folks may ask if I want to drink or why am I not drinking, and that is their choice. I in kind respond that I choose to not drink in that moment. Simple.
Any adult who cannot deal with that moderate degree of peer pressure or singular desire to drink, should then IMHO seriously reconsider there emotional development as related to carry on the streets in the first place.
It takes a hell of a lot more restraint in practice to carry than it does to enter a restaurant and not order a beer with your food or tell your buddys at the bar I'm not thirsty for alcohol right now.
Carry at restaurants, bars and other such places that sell alcohol should be lawful everywhere in all states, aside from MA and now VA (as concealed).

This is just soooo typical of the newspapers here in the Commonwealth; they just don't get the message: it's not about guns and bars; it's about guns and baked potatoes!
