    I'm sure Navy can quote the 'exact' text of that part of the law but that's the short version. Not much room for any different interpretation.

    North Carolina law is the same............................

    I'm looking for MS statutes now.
    He is referring to people like me.

    Alcohol and guns don't mix. It's stupid and irresponsible. But Mr passive aggressive Navy believes he can handle it. It's a pity that in one post he is very intelligent then he follows it up with this crap.

    To my knowledge you cannot be over the legal limit in colorado. But I wouldn't be caught with a drink in hand while carrying.

    Your knowledge is wrong
    18-12-106. Prohibited use of weapons.

    My husband makes it a point not to fly a plane if he had drink -- even with just one beer. He is the same with carrying. None at all. I am not into drinking so I am the scout between the two of us if he ever drink, then I drive or fly home or will be preferred to shoot anyone who will want to harm him...and me.

    I don't know what the big deal is ??? Back in the old west days everyone was carrying in the saloons :)

  8. All great points and thanks for the welcome and inputs. @Navy: Looks like you found the same articles I found, which still leave question marks in my mind. Think I'll go the conservative route on this one for now. As with anything, risk mitigation is the key. You definitely accept more legal and personal risk if you drink and carry. It's not for everybody, but I think a reasonable, well trained/educated, responsible free man in certain environments can and should be able to enjoy an adult beverage carrying or not. Did I straddle the fence enough on this one?

    Heck, 29 people died every day in 2009 due to drunk driving accidents. Why is it not illegal to possess car keys in a bar or in a restaurant that serves alcohol? How come people don't leave in fear of their lives when they see someone having a beer with dinner that they know has keys in their pocket?

    Yet it is soooo dangerous to drink a beer with a gun in a holster that we must pass laws to prohibit the mere possession of a gun in a restaurant that serves alcohol or a bar, and people will leave the building if they see someone having a beer while wearing a gun?

    Just a question here: how many of you that would never drink and carry a gun have no problem drinking a beer with car keys in your pocket? Can you really be trusted not to drink and drive and kill someone, or do you honestly think you can handle your alcohol enough not to take the keys out of your pocket and drive?

    Another bad an analogy. It's illegal to drink and drive. Having keys in a restaurant is not driving.

    If you're really saying you are not affected by alcohol, I just have nothing more I can say. I have thought you have been off the wall in some other post's you have made but this one takes the cake.

    I'm kinda really wondering at this point what kind of job you have as a Naval Officer that allows you that type of thinking. Amazing!
