I think that in Alabama the standard is the same as for driving (0.08%). Seems to me that I've read the same about certain other states. I'm not sure, but some states might require that you not drink at all, such as in a restaurant. You are certainly asking for trouble by drinking while carrying.
Yeah, troll alert.
Mine (Blount County) says that, too, and I have observed that stipulation 100 percent. But while the issuing sheriff does make rules, the laws of the State of Alabama supersede them. It doesn't matter what the sheriff puts on the permit if it conflicts with state law. The state law concerning alcohol may be the same, for all I know. I'll look it up when I get a chance.
St. Clair? Are you a member of the Heritage Gun Club, Glockster20?
The risk of losing your MI CPL is a major issue since it's up to the county gun board, not MI State law if you are cited for 28.425k if you're going to lose it. That would be a major concern to me if I was a MI resident. It's not up to your DMV if you're under .08 BAC or have a couple with a meal if you get to keep your driver license.Wow. I was told it was a much bigger issue to be in possession of a firearm while intoxicated. My buddy was right that it's more like a slap on the wrist. I figured there was a mandatory jail sentence.
Not a Troll.
A friend I know does this while hunting. I'm trying to convince him that this isn't in his best interests by telling him what the legal ramifications might be. Yes he's on private property but I don't think it should matter. He shouldn't be doing it. Just want to know what the legal side of it is.
