CCW in a store that sells just beer for off site consumption. Legal?

I was under the impression that in New Mexico a CCW permit holder could enter a business that sold beer for off site consumption but only conceal carry, no OC.

But I saw signs posted at several gas stations across the state last week saying it was a felony to carry in any form. The signs were marked that they were placed by the state. Was I mistaken or were those old signs? None of those stations sold anything harder than beer.

PKBITES, the land of disenchantment has for years had a wussie DPS ccw state level leadership group who caves upon any challenge...this challenge manifested itself from the liquor board and leadership allowed the businesses to put up their no guns signs.

However, nobody wishes to be the sacrificial lamb and throw themselves on the sword to challenge it in the judicial system.

Sidebar: NM statutes states NM residents may only have one CCW may be maintained as the DPS truly believes NM residents are violating the law when they have UT or other non-resident permit.
10.8.2.29 H: no reciprocity shall be afforded to a license issued by another state to a NM resident!

Further, if during your CCW course you used a 45 for live fire that is the only caliber you are authorized to carry until you 're-qualify' with another caliber during an ancillary live fire exercise with a CCW instructor and get an additional handgun endorsement IAW 10.8.2.18 for $10.

Yes pkbites, official no guns allowed signage, quoting IAW NM statute, regarding liquor sales. These are posted by the liquor control board with statutory cite in contraindication of CCW statutes.

You’re kind attention is directed to my post #3, especially about the ‘wussie’ DPS CCW leadership & no citizen wants to be the sacrificial lamb for a court case to challenge the inconsistencies.

Please know if your firearm is seen, you will be asked to leave by clerks or managers or other citizens, if you fuss, the nice LEs will be called and now you are in trouble. The LEs do not care there “might be” an inconsistency and the signage is improper...it has a “valid” statute cited and the establishment sells liquor therefore your in violation!

Congrats pkbites, you now have a new title, sacrificial lamb and your Lawyer fees are starting to rack up...just to get you out of the county jail!

Welcome to the land of disenchantment and governance of 1.5M New Mexicans by idiotic part time legislators.

By the way a sidebar, were you on sovereign pueblo lands? No firearms whatsoever on NM tribal territory.
