Gun ownership is an institution as is the consumption of alcohol, but in my experience, gun powder and alcohol do not mix, and if an individual makes the CHOICE to consume simultaneously with carrying, then something needs to give. Remember, we have rights, but stupid behavior trumps everything.
And who is the one who decides which rights are by government permission only?
Beats me, but are you suggesting it is ok to drink and carry? In my world you can get really loaded and take an Uber home, or you can be stone sober and carry with confidence. The risk you take when carrying while inebriated exceeds the value of carrying. I'm saying you can drink or you can carry, but you really shouldn't do both in the same time frame.
It is actually already illegal to carry while you're drinking (unless you're on your own property, obviously). The problem comes in, though, is when you get drunk, that is when you will start acting all stupid and showing it off. If I have intentions to drink, I probably won't carry my gun into the bar with me. But that's just me. Besides, those 51% signs prohibit it anyway, if you're going into a bar or something of the sort.

If you're going to a restaurant that happens to serve alcohol, you're probably not going to get drunk. One or two glasses of beer or wine is not gonna hurt anything.

I’d rather not open the door wide open for any & everyone to freely carry wherever they like. Sorry, but if you get convicted of a DWI, I’m glad you’re not eligible for 5 years. (as an example) You have a title 5 felony def adj, I’m glad you’re disqualified for life. (another example).
Just out of curiosity, could you explain exactly what DWI has to do with carrying a pistol? I have problems with the whole concept of deferred adjudication, but I have an even bigger problem with losing any rights for a crime I was found not guilty of (which is what the end result of deferred adjudication is).

Do yu have any other rights you think you should be licensed before you can exercise?
I agree with the initially quote here, and here's why. If someone will drink and drive, what is to stop them from drinking (getting drunk) and recklessly firing their weapon anywhere? I think the 5 year thing may be a little much, but I do like that they have to wait.
