In NC you can not conceal carry in any place that sells and consumes alcohol.

I rarely go to bars. Reason one, I can go buy booze at the store and bring it home for hell of alot cheaper, Reason two, my friends arnt bar hoppers either, and of course the final reason, No carrying allowed in bars in my state...

I would, but guess what... MA prohibits carrying under the influence. Up to 2.5 years in prison and the conviction also automatically invalidates your license to own or carry firearms.

Guns, alcohol and it's effect to release and relax suppressed inhibitions may become a problem and result in doing something careless one would not do with a clear mind.

It is best to not carry and drink, one could always utilize other self-defensive skills, if it becomes necessary. YMMV

I don't think alcohol and gun powder should mix, now if you were sitting in a restaurant that also served food and you were there for dinner , i see no problem with that.

Default Alcohol and Guns

I can see both sides of the argument. I mean, if a fight breaks out (that I'm not involved in...), I'd rather be the guy who's near the door...but if I can't be, I hope no one else who is carrying makes a bad decision because I go to the bar to get drunk, so I don't even bring a car, let alone a gun.

Don't drink any more (Diabetes does that to you)

Back in the day, if I was, I did not (carry)

Have one local restaurant where I will open carry- blued model 36, Hogue grips, black holster- wearing dark slacks, you don't see it- and local LEOs eat there, so sorta blends in. If I were going out to a club, drinking or not, I would not carry.

Did not USED to be agaisnt the law here in VA, and they are trying to change the law back, but if the place serves alcohol, you can't, whether you are drinking or not.

That's pretty bad. An Army buddy of mine was OC, legally intoxicated, walking down a main street with a case of beer over his shoulder.

He got arrested for public intox, but was released the next day gun and all. One night in the drunk tank, and that was it.

In michigan the standard is 50% of income of the establishment has to come from the sale of booze. So Applebees is ok...the local meat market booty bar not ok
