Back in 1970 I moved to Albuquerque from NY. One thing I noticed a liquor store chain around the corner were I lived all the employees opened carried a gun on there belt.
Being from NY that kind of shocked me. Now I understand and I open carry were I live.
Anyway in 1970 what were the gun laws in New Mexico? Is it more strict today?
Is Kelly's liquors still in business and if they are, do they still open carry? Or do other liquors store open carry now? Thanks
Kelly's is still around. But carrying openly in any establishment that sells liquor for on or off site consumption is illegal and a felony I believe, (dont know about during the 70's). You can however Conceal carry with a permit in a store that only sells liquor for OFF site consumption, so who knows, maybe the employees conceal carry now or just have firearms behind the counter and not on them.
