    Interesting. Can they combine the two with a sign that simply reads no firearms?

    Yeah, but without the proper sign, they can't legally do anything to someone carrying a firearm, other than ask them to leave. And if you leave before the cops show up, the police haven't officially served you with a trespass notice, so you can return later.

    maybe I should move to Texas instead of convincing my mother in law to move back here. I don't think Texas has casinos though, I would have to find a new career lol.

    they took them all down in my state. that was a great day for us. the attorney general said they were unconstitutional. for that, i liked him. for other things, not so much.

    There are some casinos like Kickapoo Lucky Eagle, but Louisiana has them right across the boarder.

    Yeah, at my level (pit manager) it's hard to get into an existing casino. Most places have a promote from within policy and that means I would be starting as a part time dealer. Texas is too hot for me anyway. I'm in New York and I'm more likely to go north then south if I ever leave here.

    I don't blame ya. I traded Louisiana for Texas. Weather is about the same, but the food switched from weird swamp fixin's to tamales and tacos. My wife is from Wisconsin and we've been looking at maybe moving there.

    i would actually disagree with this.

    i conceal carry every day. and sometimes i like to go over to a friend's house or out to a restaurant and have a drink. there's no harm in having a drink, or even 2, as long as you can handle it.

    now getting falling down drunk? yeah, that's a whole other situation. but having a drink or 2 isn't necessarily a bad, or illegal, thing.

    Technically this is false. In the eyes of my state and the Federal law enforcement agencies, even a drop of alcohol while in possession of a firearm is a crime. It doesn't carry the same limits as a DUI does. Be careful I know of a person that lost his ability to own firearms because of one beer

    goddamn, really?! one drop of alcohol while you're carrying can get you arrested there? holy shit! that's.....insane. i don't know of another word to use for it.

    i can't count how many times i've seen people here at restaurants or bars drinking alcohol while having a gun on their hip...all with cops in view.

    that's crazy, man.

    Utah has some of the most conservative and archaic liquor laws. . 01 BAC will land you with illegal possession of a firearm here.

    daaaaaamn! that's pretty crazy.

    i can understand their thinking, but to go that far is kind of over-doing it a bit.

    That's absolutely insane.

    In GA, it's much much simpler and free-er. You can drink and carry all you want. Including being falling down drunk. But, you're still reponsible for your actions.

    So...if you get a drunk & disorderly while carrying, it'll probably wind up worse for you.
    If you shoot someone in self defense while hammered, that's fine, but you still have to articulate your decision making and be responsible for all of your rounds.
    If you use it for any other purpose, that's a crime.

    I basically don't drink anymore, but it was reassuring when I did that I didn't have to lock it in the car...at a bar...where crimes and car break-ins happen.
