    This thread is pathetic. I'm sorry. Not because of the question, which should have a common sense answer, but the amount of WRONG information that everyone has given. First, to be technical, you don't have a CCW in PA. It is a LTCF. Next, the 51% rule, as quoted in another post, is in Texas. It keeps getting worse from there.

    When you choose to carry a gun, as someone pointed out in another thread (I would give proper credit if I had the author at my fingertips), you lose certain rights. You lose the right to lose your temper, and, among other things, the right to have a drink. It isn't statute, but common sense. While it may be LEGAL to have a drink while carrying, it isn't RIGHT.

    You start by whining about the false information and then you close with false information of your own. Apply your own judgements to yourself and stop trying them to impose them upon others. If you can't drink one or two beers with dinner while you are carrying a gun then don't. But don't tell me it's not right for me to. If you don't like it, when you see me have a beer with dinner with a gun in a holster on my belt where it belongs then it is your right to go somewhere else.

    You are correct, the responses to this thread are pathetic, but the OP's question is not.

    No, there are no Pennsylvania or Federal laws against it. My philosophy is that I carry my gun during my normal activities in normal everyday life and I don't adjust my life around my gun other than to not carry it in places where it is illegal to do so. Usually with a dinner out, I will have 1 or 2 beers with dinner and I feel no reason to change that because I am carrying a gun, nor do I feel a reason to not carry a gun during those times.

    Of course, I will be flamed extensively for my choice, I don't care.

    Choose wisely. Like a responsible adult.
    Amen, brother!

    You never pass up an opportunity to prove that you aren't able to post an answer without trying to berate or belittle someone. Go and have a few beers and get involved in a shooting incident. The plaintiff's attorney will hang you out to dry even if the DA doesn't. It is not right to impair your judgement when carrying a firearm. You can rationalize it any way you like or call it whining. It doesn't make it ok.

    Show us examples of where that has happened in real life....

    I really don't have to worry about it though, since I open carry the bad guy is going to shoot me first anyway.

    And then there is the "why take the chance argument..." Well, people have died from flower pots pushed off of buildings by monkeys, so why take the chance? Whenever outside, carry an umbrella over your head to deflect any falling flower pots.

    Why is that "Absolutly CRAZY!"?

    I don't know the laws in PA so I won't comment on them. I suggest you find out what the law actually states with regard to what would legally be defined as under the influence. For example, in Mass. the law states that one may not carry a firearm while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. However, the good folk at the legislature are not kind enough to define what under the influence of alcohol actually means therefore it means whatever the police and the DA think it means. The way I approach it is unless your BAC is .00 while carrying you may be under the influence.
