Carrying a Firearm While Under the Influence of Liquor or Drugs

ch 269 section 10H

1) A person with a valid LTC under s 131 or 131F,

2) May not carry on his person, or have under his control in a vehicle,

3) A Loaded Firearm,

4) While under the influence of intoxicating liquor, marijuana, narcotic drugs, depressants, or stimulants, or vapors of glue.

It is a Confiscate and Summons Offense, unless Breach of Peace in Presence.

Hey,

Don't forget to notify the Issuing Authority. They may revoke the LTC for said offense, but the person may apply to get it back.

Nice reply BHCCPD. It shows how much you really care about fellow LE officers on your campus. It's a silly law & Tom Reilly is a fool for putting it into legislation. While certainly I don't condone being in control of a F/A while intoxicated, I don't see the harm in kicking one or two back in the parking lot after a hard night of work.
OK you dopes, bash me for this post but let those without sin cast the first stone at me. You know who you are.

What about if those one or two become more.........? where do you draw the line? Do you really think it's logical to have OUI laws and open container violations for a vehicle, but not apply it to a firearm? It's not like it's a felony, and your union lawyer can probably get you a CWOF. Why do you feel the need to piss on BHCCPD, but pre-emptively call anyone a dope for calling you out? I think we all know "who" you are. Just not sure where you're coming from. If you think that's "bashing" you, so sorry

I have to agree with mpd61 about mixing alcohol and a firearm. If your going to pound a couple back whats the harm in leaving your firearm in your locker.

Just my :2c:

Ok Housingcop, I guess you feel because you are mr police officer you have a right to break the law hummmmm. As far as me caringing about fellow POs I dont really care for POs who abuse there position to break laws in which we enforce. I suppose you feel the Quincy incident were fellow POs shot of their guns in a parking lot while they were drinking last year was ok!!!!

Muggsy, you can carry in a bar as long as you have a valid LTC/FID for whatever weapon you may have on you, and you are not intoxicated.

269/10H only prohibits someone who is intoxicated from carrying a firearm (in a bar, walking down the street, whatever).

Hope this helps.

QUITE RIGHT!
Lets dispel that old myth; "you can't have a firearm in a place that is licenced to serve alcohol" If you have an LTC, you can carry anywhere but in booking area. You have a Drivers licence and a LTC, and you can't be intoxicated and be in control of what they licence you to operate/carry.
:wink:

Ok, slanderous way off-topic posts deleted. HousingCop, I have been locking up pissing match posts lately, so watch where you fling your accusations.

Everyone play nice! Hell, I feel like I am the only one keeping the peace out here, and I am just a dispatcher... :x
