NEW BILL -- HOUSE BILL NO. 48: Would allow off-duty and retired police officers to carry weapons in bars and restaurants
Burns said current law, which allows an officer to carry a weapon into an alcoholic beverage outlet only "in the performance of his official duties," is unnecessarily stringent.
"I don't like your bill," Landry said last year. "Alcohol and guns do not mix. This is a bad, bad situation. ... I don't understand how this will enhance public safety."
Neither do I. Theoretically you would tell officers not to bring their weapon if they are going to be drinking. The problem with that is it likely will not be followed. The other problem I have there is, how often does a man or woman go to a bar and not drink? Not very often.
The other side of that is restaurants that serve alcohol, it is pretty often that I go to a restaurant for lunch or something and don't drink even if they do serve alcohol.
I don't support this bill, there are some other good ones being proposed though.
