Thread: Intoxicated while Carrying

  1. Intoxicated while Carrying

    What is the general penalty for this infraction?

    I know it varies by state but what in general is the penalty.

    Any know specifically for Michigan?

    Thanks

    Tom

    Interesting first post. I'd have to look to see what the laws actually say but I will say that I think that, illegal or not, itís very irresponsible for a gun owner/permit holder to even consider carrying while drunk.

    Uh, Tom...just so ya know, most of us who hang on this site kinda frown on this kinda thing I don't know what any state penalty is and really have never thought to find out, since this is a BIG non-issue for me.

    I think that in Alabama the standard is the same as for driving (0.08%). Seems to me that I've read the same about certain other states. I'm not sure, but some states might require that you not drink at all, such as in a restaurant. You are certainly asking for trouble by drinking while carrying.

    Yeah, troll alert.

    In Alabama, the issuing Sheriff makes the rules... On the back of the St. Clair County pistol permit, rule #4 states; "Your pistol permit does not allow you to carry a pistol in any place that serves alchohol or while you are drinking"...
