OCed at Old Chicago in Meridian Township this afternoon. No problem, but it got me thinking. If you don't have a CPL you can't carry there because of the booze and if a person has a CPL and OCs he must have it on him and present it when asked by a LEO. So much for going sterile in a place that sells alcohol.
Is that a restaurant, or a bar? If it makes less than 50% of it's income from the sale of alcohol, then CC with a CPL is safe. It's only if it's primarily a bar, i.e. makes more than 50% of total store income from the sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises.
It qualifies as a restaurant. With a CPL I can carry OC or CC there but I must have my CPL with me even though I OC since a person without a CPL can't OC in any place that serves alcohol. So it would be reasonable for a LEO to ask for ID and a CPL if I was OCing in a place that served alcohol. That's all I was trying to say.
What got me thinking was I often don't carry ID or my CPL when I OC, but had to think Oh man I need it if I OC in a place that serves alcohol. It was just a heads up but since most of you guys are on top of things perhaps I just wasted your time.
Too many damn laws to worry about.
