The Restaurant Has a Bar. Can I Carry? Oklahoma

Spring Break is here, and everyone is thawing out after a long winter. Before you take part in the festivities watch Independent Program Attorney Robert Robles instruct you on the law before you walk into a restaurant or bar with your firearm.

Bars and liquor stores are lumped into a class of businesses whose primary purpose is the sale of alcohol. Therefore, it is against the law in Oklahoma to enter a business whose primary purpose is the sale of alcohol while armed.

Entering a business, whose primary purpose is the sale of alcohol, with a firearm is a felony with up to two years in the prison and up to a $1,000.

There are no signs in the state of Oklahoma that are required by statute for a business to announce that its business is primarily the sale of alcohol.

Restaurants where the primary purpose is the sale of food, and whose ancillary purpose is also the sale of alcohol, are not required by law to say food is our primary purpose, so that is to be discovered individually.

If you are under the influence of these alcohol, legal, or illegal drugs you can be fined and charged with a misdemeanor.
