They're both frequent misunderstandings of the CHL laws.
There is a common misconception that we can't carry while drinking but that's only true if we're intoxicated.
There is a common misconception that we can't carry in a church but that's only true if they give 30.06 notice.
Must have misunderstood your response. I read your statement as saying you shouldn't carry in church. :tiphat:

Same as guns and churches.

No old legislation either; you just can't be intoxicated. No changes.

You are allowed some Wine, Beer or whatever in any establishment that is not 51% posted. You remain legal as long as you do not go over the .08 limit which is the same for operating a Motor Vehicle.All that being said, .....if you are involved in a shooting and have ANY amount of alcohol in your system, you can be assured that the DA will make it quite clear that you were under the influence.

My rule is, one beer or one wine and NO MORE while eating a meal. A good strong coffee at the end of the meal.
No Sir.

Respectfully, this is incorrect.

There is no "legal limit" as concerns concealed carry. The standard of law here... appears to be "intoxication" alone, (no legal limit guidelines).

With this in mind....it remains the discretion of the officer to arrest...and the duty of the LE agency and prosecution to "prove" you were "intoxicated".
:iagree:
