Bar carry

Hey all need some help here...

I am a Maine resident and have a maine CCW...

simply put can you carry concealed in and establishment that serves alcohol?

read the first part of this me this sounds like it is permissable if the establishment does not post a prohibition to carry...

I called the state and the answer I got was very vauge and the SGT. said "we advise not to".... advise, or law that is the question I want an answer to.

I dont mean sitting at the bar & getting ripped I mean sitting down eating and the bar is across the room... Appleby's for instance...

17-A M.R.S.A. 1057, Possession of firearms in an establishment licensed for onpremises
consumption of liquor
1. A person is guilty of criminal possession of a firearm if:

A. Not being a law enforcement officer or a private investigator licensed under
Title 32, chapter 89 and actually performing as a private investigator, the person possesses any firearm on the premises of a licensed establishment posted to
prohibit or restrict the possession of firearms in a manner reasonably likely to come to the attention of patrons, in violation of the posted prohibition or restriction; or

B. While under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs or a combination of
liquor and drugs or with an excessive blood-alcohol level, the person possesses a
firearm in a licensed establishment.
2. For the purposes of this section, "licensed establishment" means a licensed
establishment as defined by Title 28-A, section 2, subsection 15, the license for which
is held by an on-premise retail licensee, as defined by Title 28-A, section 2, subsection
27, paragraph B. For the purposes of this section, "premises" has the same meaning as
set forth in Title 28-A, section 2, subsection 24.

Paragraph A is very confusing to me not being well versed in lawyer speak

Its a mighty world we live in!
But the truth is...
We're only passin through.

The only thing new that happens in this world, is the history we forget...
