While on the subject of alcohol:

Suppose I am at home and have had several beers and then the house is broken in to by a BG and I use a gun to protect my family. I wonder what the consequences will be?

Ditto here in GA about the 50% rule. The anti's were screaming about blood running in the streets and guess what - nothing has happened (became law 1 July 2008)...

In AZ if you drink you are not allowed to CCW or open carry. Also some bars and restaurants post no firearms allowed, although the signs are small and easy to miss. I caryy in bars if allowed, do not drink, and let the wife have a good time.

Didn't they pass another law a little after that, that said you can carry in a bar (+50% of rev. from booze) as long as you are not drinking? Or am I misinformed?

Same law. You can carry in one of the 50% places; however, you cannot consume alcohol while strapped...

Here in Az the gun laws are getting much better for the public.

It always bothered me to have to leave my weapon in my car when I went to dinner with my family at a resturant that served alcohol. Since I do not drink anymore it is not a problem. I have gotten in the habit of not going in to a resturant that does not allow me to carry weapon, I will take my business else where.

Yes on the 50% food thing as long as you do not drink. Now they are looking at concealed carry for all with no permit at all.

In Texas, you cannot carry (with CHL) in an establishment that derives 51% of its income from the sale or service of alcohol AND has a red 51% sign prominently displayed. No sign - no violation.

The chart is not correct. At this time you can not carry in a resturant that serves alchol. There is a law going through right now that will change this. I t would still make it illegal to be carrying if you are drinking which I completely agree with.

Incorrect for which states? I just peeked at the Indiana guide http://handgunlaw.us/states/indiana.pdf and here's what I've got:

Places Off-Limits Even With A Permit/License
· In or On School Property.
· On A School Bus.
· In or On Property That Is Being Used By a School for a School Function.
· Private School (IC 20-9.1-1-3) & (IC 35-41-1-24.7).
· Head Start (IC 35-41-1-24.7
· Preschool (IC 35-41-1-24.7).
· IC 35-47-9-1 Allows the carry of firearms by persons permitted to possess and who are transporting a
person to or from school or a school function.
· On a Commercial or Charter Aircraft.
· Controlled Access Areas Of An Airport
· During Annual State Fair 80 IAC 4-4-4 (Must lock in Vehicle.)
· Shipping Port 130 IAC 4-1-8 (Controlled by the Indiana Port Commission)
· A Riverboat Casino.

This is going on in TN? This is the most recent thing I could find: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jul/14/arizona-tennessee-gun-law-debate
Whoever wrote the article pisses me off, but that's the media for ya.

Not saying you're wrong, I don't live there.
