I got charged with unlawful carry because I was "under the influence" I have a MS permit and this happened in Keller, TX does anyone know what to do or what happens?
Do not volunteer any information to the police other than name, DOB and SSAN. Contact an attorney, and do not talk to anyone until advised by the attorney. Ask your attorney if you can plead it down to a lesser charge. Good luck. Most states have and enforce laws about carrying while drinking. Not a good idea to mix alcohol and gunpowder... the mixture is explosive.
I was asking for legitimate help I.e. Anyone that lives in TX or knows of cases like this. Yes it was stupid; however, it happened and will not again. I don't need the negative feedback. It's a forum to help not be an *****.

I thought TX was gun friendly. You can't carry a gun in an establishment that derives 51% of it's receipts from alcohol? This is for real? Better inspect the restaurant's books before entering.
