Practices to Implement When Carrying a Concealed Pistol

Hopefully, you have read my previous blog on the importance of properly storing your concealed pistol.  Now, I want to provide some valuable information for those who plan to carry their pistol in public. Understanding the situations and places where you can and cannot possess your weapon will be imperative to your safety and freedom.

First and foremost, always have your CPL license and some sort of state-issued identification card in your possession any time you decide to carry. Next, do not carry your pistol if you are planning to consume alcohol. As part of your CPL, you are giving implied consent to submit to chemical analysis for alcohol and/or controlled substances. In other words, you will be required to comply with any blood, breath, or urine testing that a law enforcement officer requests.

Finally, you should be aware of premises that prohibit any possession of a firearm, whether licensed or unlicensed. This includes any:
  • School or school property;
  • Depository financial institution (bank or credit union);
  • Property owned or operated by a place of worship;
  • Court;
  • Bar or tavern, even in the absence of a posted sign indicating the establishment as a prohibited premise;
  • Hospital;
  • Day care center, public or private;
  • Dormitory or classroom of a community college, college, or university;
  • Stadium, theater, and any entertainment facility with a seating capacity of 2,500 or more individuals

If you find yourself facing legal consequences for a pistol-related offense, you should immediately contact the attorneys at Fausone Bohn, LLP and ask for Mark Mandell.
