All these disparate laws make it soooooooooo easy for a CWP holder to be a criminal in one place and 50 feet away, in another county or another state you are a criminal. The mish mash of state laws is like all the rules and regulations of the IRS where you need your own professional accountant to keep you out of trouble. Only thing about that is you give 20 CPA's 20 different tax filings to figure out and you get 20 different answers. Just incredible!
    Actually the Reciprocation Law did not standardize CCW's laws. It just did away with the process of reciprocating between states. You were still supposed to respect each state's law

    In MN you can CC in any restaurant or bar. I recommend no alcohol on board. The statute is confusing. In one place it says no carry while under the influence of alcohol. In another it says .04 to .10 is good for 6mos suspension and no forfeiture of gun, but .10 or more and goodby gun. How do you want to answer in court when asked "Did you have ANYTHING to drink?"

    Carrying concealed I'm sure does drive some people to drink, but somehow I don't think that's what you meant!

    In KY CCW in a bar is illegal but if the restaurant derives most of its income from food as a bar and grill its OK (Appleby's, Friday's and other bar and grill type places). Alcohol and guns don't mix just as drinking and driving don't mix. Judegement is impaired and I am not sure I want someone carrying who has been impaired.

    Well in Tn you can enter a restaurant that serves alcohol, OC or CC it doesnt matter, but its illegal to drink and carry.

    I personally would not drink anything at all while packing, thats just me!!

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    You do realize that it's not illegal to carry while drinking, or even while drunk in FL, right?

    Exactly! Same as PA. Amazing thing is we don't have drunk CCWers gunning down folks daily. Hard to imagine that most people tend to actually be responsible citizens. Strange concept, eh?

    In my state, no carry is allowed where alchohol is consumerd. This stinks.

    We already have the designated driver when folkd go out to party, why can't we have a designated defender, who carries while not drinking alchoholic beverages?
