We're fighting a similiar battle here in VA, I feel you. Our governor did say he will veto a bill that will allow CHP to dine while concealed in a restaurant that serves alchohol.
Why would a concealed carry permit holder who is not drinking be a threat to "innocent people who simply want to eat"??
Are you serious? Read the article, it's dangerous to mix guns and alchohol at ANY time.
his time is running out. 3 more days, i believe
Putting people who have guns in a bar (whether licensed or not) and drunk people picking fights (which would happen anyway) will lead to the drunk people getting shot and reducing the number of people wanting to go out and get drunk which will lead to a net loss of revenue in fewer liquor licenses being sought and taxes due to decreased patronage at bars.
All about the Benjamins
OH GOD!! PLEASE LET IT JUST PASS!!
Then we (CHPs) benefit and he can still say to his party that he didn't bless it.
Not true, there are more states that allow CCW into an establishment that sells alchohol than not. You don't hear about drunks dropping like flies in those states. That arguement is just as false as those who were saying that FL will become "wild west" if they allowed their citizens to CCW.
my sarcasm failed
Since it's inception decades ago FL CWL holders have been able to go and eat in any restaurant, they just can't go into the bar area or consume an alcoholic beverage while carrying.
I've never heard of a negative restaurant related CCW incident here in FL - the author of that article is full of crap.
Also, here in FL, as a CWL holder you can CC in state parks and WMAs. But FL law specifically prohibits weapons CC or not at sporting events, etc... Again I can't recall any kind of negative press or event involving a CHL holder in a state park or WMA.
Sorry brah, I don't think you are a regular here so I wasn't familiar w/ your stance on these things.
