    ...and if you don't know if the restaurant, gas station, grocery store, etc. has a liquor license, just search for it here:

    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    I walked into a Mobil gas station a few months ago, and was quite surprised to see a beer cooler next to the pop. I usually get all my gasoline at Mobil, but hadn't been to this particular store in years. The ones I frequent don't sell alcohol, so I would never have guessed that they might have a license to sell it. I have a CPL so it was really no problem, but I think this illustrates well why we encourage everyone who OC's to go ahead and get a CPL, even though we don't necessarily agree with the concept of needing a license to begin with. Meanwhile, we need to continually be moving this state towards constitutional carry.

    A CPL turns a right into a privilege.

    I agree with stainless1911.

    Just because you have a CPL doesn't mean you always have to carry concealed. It just provides you with a little more flexibility when it comes to the law. The two biggest areas that would get me in trouble had I not got my CPL would be:

    1) getting into a car while open carrying (that would get you busted since the law says carrying in a car is always considered concealed)
    2) carrying into a place that is licensed to sell liquor (may of us shop at licensed stores even if we don't drink- Walmart, Meijer, Kroger, etc...).

    This is a GREAT link. I've had it saved in my phone, and I search it often. There are plenty of places you wouldn't think would have a liquor license (don't sell alcohol), but in fact do have one.
