  • Concealed weapon at restaraunt

    Hey everyone, I just got off the phone with my friend who said he was at a restaurant with his girlfriend and this drunk guy was also there sitting near them. He said the guy took a .22 out of his pocket at put it on the counter. Staff called the PD and about 7 officers showed up and placed him under arrest with no conflict. The guy was saying he had a permit and this and that blah blah but what would he get charged with in this kind of incident? Possession of a concealed firearm while under the influence? Would public intoxication also be a charge?

    edit: He also said if he wanted to shoot someone he already would have (smart comment on his part)

    Thank You

    Your question can only be answered by someone who is familiar with Connecticut law, and may require more info about the facts.

    I am sure that the open carry fanatics will tell you that what he did was absolutely legal and protected by the Second Amendment, and the police should be prosecuted for violating his civil rights.

      good point, and I was told that he put the gun on the counter, staff notified the police, while the police were enroute no one took the gun off the counter (I understand the shock and people not wanting to touch the gun) and the guy took the gun and put it back in his pocket and police pulled it off him on the frisk. But I mean when he took that gun back, anything could have happend, before authorities showed up or right when they showed up, anything could have happend - he was drunk.

        Well, I'm a huge supporter/practitioner of O.C., and this guy won't get any defense from me, unless there were some pretty unusual extenuating circumstances. On the evidence given, he sounds like a retaded rectal-chapeau.

            I would think CT would have a similar law. TN also has one for possession weapon under the influence, regardless if the holder has a permit or not.

              .

              It depends on what the law is there.


              In MN I believe you can have an BAC of .04 with a permit, so if he blew and he was under that, then he would be free to go.


              Now if at .04 and acting intoxicated that may change it. Plus, I believe in MN that would be brandishing his firearm and that could get him into trouble also.

                In TX, he would be arrested for Unlawful Carrying Of A Hangun by a License Holder because he carried the firearm while intoxicated (Misdemeanor) and it would be a felony to have the weapon in his possession if the establishment generates 51% of its revenue through alcohol sales.

                A copy of the report would get sent to DPS and his license would get revoked.

                  Well, if someone laid a gun on the counter in front of me I'd consider it a threat and that's assault in my state. Even without that it would still be a crime for possessing a gun while intoxicated.

                      Without even considering whether or not the permit is valid while he's been drinking, most states also have a law against brandishing or improperly displaying a firearm. You can't unholster your weapon unless you're responding to some sort of threat, no matter whether or not you have a permit.

                        I'm willing to bet there's more to his intentions. He pulled the gun out because he wanted a reaction.
                        If he had a conceal carry license he could have kept it concealed and no one would have known.
                        Instead he chose to show every one that he was drunk with a gun. I hope they fry him

                          I thought the same thing. It sounds to me like he got exactly what he wanted- attention. Was a B/A% done?

                            My friend doesn't know what happend once they took him out of the restaurant in cuffs but I would assume they would have him blow or pull his blood (Unless you always need a warrant for blood)??

                              In Arkansas he would be prosecuted for possession of a handgun while intoxicated. He could also be charged with terroristic threatening, assault, carrying a weapon, and downright stupidity.
