Once again........

Here in Indiana, we have the right to defend ourselves if, (and these are not verbatim quotes) :

1. You feel that your life is in danger.
2. You feel that you will suffer bodily harm.
3. You are defending your property.

And that's it, in a nutshell.

During a previous conversation, we discussed the ability to carry in bars and/or bars & grills in Indiana. Several questions came from that, but I'll give you one that happened to me over the weekend.

I'm at a bar, sober, eating some chicken and drinking my first beer. An old (but not cherished) friend of mine comes up.........drunk off his ass.........and slaps me on the back. I knew who it was so I turn around and say, "Hey man, how ya doing."

"Good man, Good! You? Lemme buy you a shot!"

"No thanks, man. I'm eating and watching the game."

He starts to grab me around the waist to pick me up out of the chair to give me a hug, and then feels the mags and the weapon itself. Put's me back down.

"Holy : censored . You strapped, Bro?"

"Yea"

"Why, man?!? I just beat people up with these! These TWO fists! I make 'em bleed and then walk away, smiling."

"That's why I carry this. They walk up with two fists.........and then I walk away while they bleed."

He got a surprised look on his face, and then he just.........walked away.

Granted; Drunk "friend" of mine. But he got the picture. Never saw him again for the rest of the night.

Drunks in bars?

Nah, tell me ain't so joe:rolf

We can't carry in an establishment that serves alcohol in Az for a reason. This related story reinforces why that law is in effect.

Just joined your "Threat Focused" forum, but I'll read for a while before I post.

Very good stuff there.

In Florida, you can carry in places that serve alcohol. The restriction is on places that serve MOSTLY alcohol.
The bar section of a restraunt is off limits, but a booth in the bar area is fine, if you're eating. Have a drink if you want, just don't sit at the bar.

Makes as much sense as most gun laws.......
