Thread: Can I legally have a (really just one) drink with dinner in MS?

  1. Can I legally have a (really just one) drink with dinner in MS?

    I have found some states like TN explicitly state that you cannot drink while carrying. I cannot find anything concrete in any of the Mississippi laws. Most states differentiate that you cannot carry in a bar or the
    portion of a restaurant that is the bar. Does anyone know the answer and have the supporting verbiage? Any other info on states in the SE will be helpful just in case I travel there. Just like to have a beer with dinner. Thanks!

    Texas has a no legal limit when you carry.

    Welcome to the forum! Did you know there are actually members of this forum who, if they saw you have a beer in a restaurant and knew you had a gun, would get up and leave the premises because of how dangerous they would consider you to be?

    I'm looking for MS statutes now.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears

    Nope. But I do know of other members that the OP probably doesn't. To wit:

And I know this will bring up comments of "I can handle my beer, you must be a lightweight, uugh I'm a man!!" Drinking while carrying makes me question the persons judgment.

    and the have a beer with dinner while carrying a gun conversation was probably beat to death in that thread. I'm not against it, BTW. I feel no need to disarm because I am going to have one or two beers in the course of an evening.

    The only thing I can find in Mississippi Code is this:

    97-37-13. Deadly weapons; weapons and cartridges not to be given to minor or intoxicated person


    It shall not be lawful for any person to sell, give or lend to any minor under eighteen (18) years of age or person intoxicated, knowing him to be a minor under eighteen (18) years of age or in a state of intoxication, any deadly weapon, or other weapon the carrying of which concealed is prohibited, or pistol cartridge; and, on conviction thereof, he shall be punished by a fine not more than One Thousand Dollars ($ 1,000.00), or imprisoned in the county jail not exceeding one (1) year, or both.

    Are you willing to bet your freedom on the answer you get from some anonymous internet poster?

    Even if it's legal, a prosecutor would have a hay day with the fact that you might have been impaired during a shooting incident. Sad, but true.

    If you don't know, err on the side of caution and don't drink. One little drinkee is not worth putting your right to legally carry at risk.

    The part of the South that I live in, SC, having a beer w/ dinner can happen only if you are unarmed. You are not permitted to carry in any establishment that sells alcohol for consumption in that establishment.

    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.
