There has been some debate recently about concealed carry in restaurants that serve alcohol and bars. Personally I see no issue in the matter. Just because you are in a restaurant or a bar, does not mean you will be drinking. To me, it's just another ridiculous ban to play 'gotcha' with regular law abiding people. As you can see in the above map 8 states prohibit the carrying of firearms into a restaurant that serve alcohol. It doesn't matter if you are drinking or not... you can't carry period. Some states like TN just passed a law allowing carry in bars and restaurants, but you can't drink alcohol. Other states like PA for example treat carrying and drinking like they do DUI's... up to a 0.8 BAC limit then you are illegal. The following questions is in regards to law abiding citizens with permits to carry... Do you think carry should be banned in restaurants that serve alcohol? Why or why not?
