    I found this:

    AS 11.61.215. Intoxication as Applicable to Possession of a Firearm. [Repealed, Sec. 11 Ch 59 SLA 1991].
    Repealed or Renumbered

    from:

    Just curious, I know you can't do it at restaurants, but is it against the law to have a beer or so at a friends house with either carrying open or concealed as long (as you aren't past the legal limit?)
    I'm guessing that was the law cited above was referring to.

    What do you think?

    Sec. 11.61.210. Misconduct involving weapons in the fourth degree.
    (a) A person commits the crime of misconduct involving weapons in the fourth degree if the person
    (1) possesses on the person, or in the interior of a vehicle in which the person is present, a firearm when the person's physical or mental condition is impaired as a result of the introduction of an intoxicating liquor or a controlled substance into the person's body in circumstances other than described in AS 11.61.200 (a)(7);

    Anyway, drinking while armed with guns is stupid. If you do have to shoot someone and drinking with firearms was legal, you're more likely to go to jail.
    Gays are prominent members of firearm rights, we do more via the courts, don't like it? Leave.

    The law is silent on this topic down here inIndiana. I open carry regularly & belly-up to the bar for a drink now & then. I don't advocate getting sloppy drunk in public or in private, but I wear my revolver while having a drink. I live in the N.E. corner of Indiana & frequent Ohio & Michigan regularly. Ohio prohibits carrying into ANY establishment that sells alcoholic beverages by the drink. Michigan will allow you to blow 0.02 if you're packing heat. Indiana just doesn't care & our saloon floors aren't slippery with blood.

    Legal or not, it's not a good idea to carry when you have a drink. Even if it's only one drink, if anything happens, you're making your problems 1000 times worse.



    Also, if you can't do it at restaurants... I'd lean towards it not wanting you to drink anything at all while carrying.

    you can not OC in a place that served alcohol for consumption on the premises. in order to carry in a restaurant that serves, you must CC and NOT CONSUME.


    I interpret the law to mean that if you blow over the legal limit they will charge you with possession of a deadly weapon while intoxicated. if you are under the limit and not showing signs of impairment they may just advise you to disarm. If you are showing signs of impairment and under the limit they may charge you with possession of a deadly weapon while impaired.
