"SB 334, sponsored by State Senator Emmett Hanger (R-24), would allow concealed carry permit holders to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense in restaurants that serve alcohol, provided they do not consume alcohol. Senator Hanger’s bill would make it a misdemeanor for a permit holder to consume alcohol while on the premises of the restaurant. This Right-to-Carry reform measure passed the Senate last week by a 22-18 vote."
quoted this from an NRA email.
What concerns me is the wording
"Senator Hanger’s bill would make it a misdemeanor for a permit holder to consume alcohol while on the premises of the restaurant."
that quote mentions nothing about the actual carrying of a firearm, only that if one has a concealed handgun permit, and consumes alcohol in a restaurant, one is guilty of a misdemeanor.
Now I hope that the NRA folks simply slipped up on this one. Anybody feel like telling them that they messed up a little?
