Alcoohol consumption and KY ccw

I live in KY and as far as I can tell, it's vague unless the drinking resulted in a DUI or something. But, in my opinion and it echoes some other responses, alcohol and guns are a bad combination. No matter what the legalities of it all, I wouldn't want to be one of those "friends" if they had to shoot someone in self defense. No matter how justifiable, I would speculate that IF they didn't end up in JAIL, they would end up SUED.
 

I have several friends who regularly carry after having a few beers. They have told me it's not a big deal as long as you're opnly having a few and not getting "wasted". I definitely wouldn't feel safe around someone who was carrying drunk and I don't drink period so it's null for me. But what I think they also need to be concerned about is the legality of doing that in public. I can find the rules for other states but can anyone tell me or better yet point me in the right direction as to where I can find KY law pertaining to this. I've looked everywhere and it never says specifically just that you can't carry in bars. It makes me wonder if there even is a limit for drinking and carryng. Is it 0.08 just like drinking and driving or would consuming any alcohol be considered illegal? Thanks for your alls feedback. Donny

Alcohol and guns don't mix - PERIOD. After nearly getting shot in the head with a 12 gauge shotgun, by an ex friend who wanted to have a few beers while we were shooting skeet, I vowed never to have the two together again. I wholeheartedly urge you to stay away from those "friends," they're an accident waiting to happen.
 
It is unlawful for the permittee to carry a concealed handgun while consuming alcohol
or at any time while the person has remaining in his body any alcohol or in his blood a
controlled substance previously consumed. However, a permittee does not violate this law
if a controlled substance in his blood was lawfully obtained and taken in therapeutically
appropriate amounts.

That's North Carolina law pretty straight foward.

i agree alcohol in general sucks but most folks here are friggin anal about everything hahaha. "you might as well douse yoursef in gasoline and strike a match" GTFO lmao :hang3: Funny how much differently folks in Switzerland see the issue
 
Alcohol, tobacco, fire arms, sounds like a party I'll bring the chips....just a joke I heard. So don't drink and carry sounds smart but when I get home can I still use my gun to defend my family at home. If so, I was responseable enough to get the cpl. Not having any felonies and such. I guess it is up to me to know when not to take things too far, meaning drinking or shooting.
 
I have carried for more then 15 years as does my wife. When in my boat I never drink too many crazies in other boats and have seen my share of drunks WHO think they can hold it. If you drink leave the weapon home. That could possibly be the smartest thing you have done that day.

WOW, did this get him banned? Not the most personable comment, but certainly not the worst thing I've read.

I didn't realize he was banned but I suspect it was the thread he started where he described his a$$ getting ravished by his boyfriend. However you might feel about gay rights, this was WAY over the top. I noticed the thread was deleted pretty rapidly and I suspect that thread was what got him ousted, if he was.

Ah, that makes more sense. Fortunately, I missed that one.:bad:
 
Would the ban apply if a person did not enter the bar area of the establishment, but only entered the restaurant area? In other words, is it illegal to carry in any establishment that serves beer or wine (let alone alcohol) if you are not partaking of spirits?
