I live in Ohio and have had my CCW for 3 years. Our Governor is about to sign a bill allowing me to carry my legal weapon, concealed, into liquor establishments (from Red Lobster to the ever popular "Dew Drop Inn".) That is, so long as the proprieter of the bar has not posted a "No Guns Allowed" sign. As you might imagine, this new legislation has been hotly discussed in the media as the second coming of the gunfight at the OK corral. Just like the issuance of the CCW's was when it was legalized. The one fact that the opponents completely ignore in their hysterical warnings is that this is already legal (or so I am told) in many other states. Without mass shootings over spilled Lobsteritas. Apparently we Ohioans are a different breed from the rest of you guys. WE cannot be trusted. My question is, in just HOW MANY (and WHICH) states can you carry your loaded weapon legally in a liquor establishment? I have seen different numbers mentioned and my guide to the firearms laws in the 50 states does not seem to mention this one aspect. I know I could (and eventually will) go the the websites for the various states and get a definitive answer. But I thought it be interesting to hear the various differences in the law in each state from more concerned individuals. I would also be interested to know if your state has the "No Guns" sign and what the penalty is for ignoring it.
