  1. Legal Interpretation: Concealed Carry in Establishment Licensed... for Liquor

    Just need some help interpreting this - does the law state that I cannot possess a concealed firearm in ANY establishment licensed for on premises consumption of liquor? In other words, if I eat at a chain restaurant like 99 or Ruby Tuesday's, which serves liquor, am I in violation by carrying?

    I understand that I cannot carry while intoxicated, so the question is specific whether I can carry in a bar/restaurant that sells liquor.

    You should check your local ordinances to see what it says. That would be the quickest way to find out.

    Depends on your state. It's legal in WV.

  5. I assume your question pertains to Maine law?

    If so, no, Maine law does not *in general* prohibit you from carrying a concealed firearm into an establishment licensed for on-premises consumption of liquor. The exception being that if such an establishment has posted a notice prohibiting or restricting the possession of firearms in a manner reasonably likely to come to the attention of patrons, then carrying a firearm is a crime.

    So, bottom line: No sign, you can carry.
