    Gun-friendly businesses growing in popularity Welcoming armed customers can attract

    Carrying rights are now a reality in every state, while only three states — Maine, North Dakota and Illinois — claim a complete ban on guns in restaurants or any establishment that derives more than half of its profits from alcohol. In many states, including Ohio, it’s up to the customer to refrain from drinking alcohol while carrying a firearm — which can be an operational headache. Some remain silent on the issue, essentially giving a free pass to carry.

    In my experience, it's easy for corporate to make sweeping decisions to ban guns.

    It's a lot more difficult for the people with boots on the ground (managers and small business owners) to turn away actual, paying customers.

    Also, if every CCer OCed, I doubt we'd see very many anti establishments at all.

    I believe you may be confused about the law in Maine concerning carrying a firearm in a restaurant.

    In Maine it is actually legal to conceal carry a firearm in a business licensed for the on premises consumption of alcohol as long as you remain under the legal limit of .08 if you decided to drink.

    The exception is if there is a sign posted no firearms then it is against the law to carry.

    You also can not open carry in these locations, only CC

    I think you may have misread the law.

    I don't see anything in the pertinent law which is carry-mode specific.

    Yeah your right, sorry I was mixing things up,

    My main point was that you are allowed to carry in a licensed establishment in Maine.
