So it's illegal to conceal carry in "no minors" area of bars, but is it okay to open carry in them? I don't remember reading anything about this.

It may depend on state regulations. I know here in Florida at the bar is a big no no. In the restaurant is ok. But def not in the bar area. There's a lot of grey area, best to err on the side of caution.

Same is true here in Michigan:In the restaurant is ok. But def not in the bar area. Even if they are in the same building. If you stay in the restaurant area you are OK, but can't go into the bar area. In Michigan, there is always(supposed to be) a clear mark of where the restaurant is and where the bar is. Usually bar is hard floor and restaurant is carpet.

VA is an oc(NO permit required)/ccp (shall issue) state. it is legal to carry a concealed weapon in a bar, oc is ok (if management allows)but you shall not consume alcohol
"No person who carries a concealed handgun onto the premises of any restaurant or club as defined in Section 4.1-100 for which a license to sell and serve alcoholic beverages for on-premises consumption has been granted by the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Board under Title 4.1 of the Code of Virginia; may consume an alcoholic beverage while on the premises. A person who carries a concealed handgun onto the premises of such a restaurant or club and consumes alcoholic beverages is guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor. However, nothing in this subsection shall apply to a federal, state, or local law-enforcement officer."

The OP is speaking of open carry in a bar. In Michigan it is absolutely legal, with a CPL, to open carry in a bar. You cannot CC in a bar, nor can you open carry without a CPL.

Off topic, but Michigan is an open carry state you can legally walk around carrying a firearm in plan view, but once you pull you shirt down or get a a car your breaking the law. You do not need a CPL to open Carry in Michigan

Now as far as carrying in a bar in the great state of Michigan, you can't carry concealed or open in a establishment that make more revenue from alcohol sales then food sales

I would venture a guess that most states would not allow the carry of a firearm where alcohol was openly served and consumed. That would be asking for trouble right there.

Sorry, but that is incorrect. In Michigan, if you have a CPL, you can open carry in any bar not posted by the owner. PFZ's only apply to concealed carry.

For the same reason anybody carries anywhere. We hear this argument all the time, about "why do you need to carry here, or there?". The truth is nobody, unless they have a crystal ball, knows where a tool may be needed. And parking lots in any location are prime attack points for criminals.

Unless of course you are going to carry to the bar door and then throw the gun back to the car.
