A drunk person with a loaded gun is just as dangerous as a drunk driver is.

I would say a drunk person with a loaded gun is just as dangerous as a drunk person with a car, or maybe in their car.

FACT 1) There are about 600,000 CCW holders in PA.

FACT 2) It is perfectly legal to drink while carrying and there is no limit to drink while carrying in PA.

Please show me the shootings by those who are drunk. It doesn’t happen. These sort of nonsensical laws should never be supported by gun owners.

Nonsense. Carrying a gun while over the legal limit is like sitting at home and drinking over the limit, with a car sitting in the garage. You probably won’t need it, but if a loved one needed to get to the hospital, and there isn’t a first responder at hand to handle it, something tells me you’d be capable of and justified in driving, and accepting the added risk to save a life.

Same for lawful self defense, even if partially impaired.

Besides, shooting a gun effectively isn’t that hard, even when tipsy (not that I have made it a practice).
