I know its California but you can buy it on Sunday and any other day. You can buy alcohol at Gas Station with stores, Wal-Mart, Supermarkets, 7-11s, Drug stores and in fact a lot of places 24 hours a day. however they really do a good job of checking ID.

I was surprised to find hard liquor in grocery stores, next to the potato chips out there.

Here's whats stupid about the current laws. I can't go to a grocery store to get a bottle of wine for dinner. Yet, I can go to a local restaurant and order a bottle of wine with food, have one glass, and they will package the rest up and send it home with me. Does that make any sense what so ever? Its rediculous. But thats OK, because my wife and I can each have a glass of two different types of wine and we get to bring BOTH bottles home with us.

You must be speaking of Seattle, because in Georgia that is a violation of the open container law:

Open Container Law
The law defines "open alcoholic beverage container" as any bottle, can, or other receptacle that contains any amount of alcoholic beverage and: (1) is open or has a broken seal; or (2) the contents of which are partially removed.

Well then Im an outlaw. Because Ive been to several restaurants that allow it. Oops to them, good for me!

But I think your wrong.

GEORGIA – A WINEDOGGYBAG STATE
Senate Bill 55 has been put into law allowing restaurant patrons to remove, for off-premises consumption, a resealed partially consumed bottle of wine that was purchased with a meal provided the bottle is placed in a bag that is secured in such a manner that it is visibly apparent if the container has been subsequently opened or tampered with.

A BILL to be entitled an Act to amend Article 1 of Chapter 6 of Title 3 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to general provisions relative to wine, so as to authorize restaurant patrons to remove for off-premises consumption a resealed partially consumed bottle of wine that was purchased with a food item; to amend Article 11 of Chapter 6 of Title 40 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to miscellaneous provisions of the uniform rules of the road, so as to provide that a resealed partially consumed bottle of wine that was purchased with a food item is not an open alcoholic beverage container for purposes of the prohibition against possessing an open container of alcohol in the passenger area of a motor vehicle; to provide for related matters; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

You can't legislate morality. Doesn't work that way. I probably drink maybe a 6-pack in a year's time tops. I got that out of my system in College and never have had a desire to drink it since. I wouldn't care if you don't ever have the chance to purchase it because of the many abuses that lead to deaths every single year. What I would like to see is a huge tax increase on alcohol sales to help offset the costs born by the general public based on the abuse of alcohol. Feel free to use it, but pay even more to support the negatives caused by it. Raise the DUI level and penalities as well. I feel the same way about cigarettes. Anywho, that is my opinion. Also, for what it's worth, whenever the Sunday sales or mixed drink referundums have come up for vote down here, I have voted no every time.

I feel the same way about coca cola, mc donalds, chips, cheese dip, and bacon. Tax the heck out of it because it kills people and cost tax payer money.

Yes. We know that big macs kill people everyday when they get behind the wheel or make someone beat or abuse someone. We know that big macs cause lung cancer. Apples/Oranges.

It makes sense if you look at it from a financial stand point. As is with many laws, the real reason for the law is that sombody profits from it. You pay about three times as much for that bottle of wine in a restaurant. Guess who supports the no Sunday sales?

Its ok to raise taxes on something that you don't like, but what if they raise the taxes on something you like?
Be careful, if you raise taxes too much you create a black market.

Do you have the same opinion on gun control? Guns lead to many abuses that cause deaths every single year. Do we need to raise taxes on guns to offset those people who are shot by them and need public funded healthcare? Should we tax the heck out of ammunition as well? Should we make it harder for people to purchase guns by saying they can't buy them on Saturday? How about Monday or Friday?

A firearm is just a tool built to do a specific job, it does not have the ability to chemically alter your behavior. Alcohol is a vice and when consumed in varying quantities very much alters one ability to think and function clearly, resulting in un-intended consequences, most of the time with a firearm. That said, I'll go on record by saying that, as an ordained Baptist deacon, i personally have no problem with the Senate's vote today. I think it should be left up to the people of the communities to decide for themselves, just as I think it should be left up to churches to decide for themselves whether or not to allow firearms in their sanctuaries, not have it mandated to them by the state government.

.....and no, I do not consume alcohol.

Although we probably disagree on a lot of issues, I respect the fact you support the right of individuals to make their own decisions. I will cheers your diet coke

Yeah, the ol' Airplane sized bottle of bourbon and a coke But you want to talk good ol' days, the law was, you couldn't buy alcohol or beer until 11am, Mon-Sat. But, there was the fishcamps, where you could buy beer or wine starting at 6am. I surely do miss the Lake Washington fishcamp...

This state reaches around its butt to scratch its elbow, kinda like the new CCW law.

The carry laws in this state are very spotty. When I say spotty, I mean...you can carry here, you cant carry there. I understand your group advocates and lobby's for these laws. I feel you and your group should advocate for no restrictions on carry concealed/open. Something similar to NH and AZ.

Correct me if I am wrong. Is your groups ultimate goal to allow "carry concealed", but with restrictions?

OK....your wrong. Concealed carry with restrictions is not our ultimate goal. Study up on the link I provided to you in the Ga. Carry thread and become one of us. "Georgia's NO COMPROMISE voice for gun owners".

.....and no, I do not consume alcohol.
Thanks for your post, it shows a well considered and reasonable viewpoint. I choose not to be religious, though I respect the church and those who decide to follow it's teachings.

In the same sense that I am tolerant and respectful of the views of others, I demand the same from them. I will respect the views of the church until the point where they encroach upon my personal freedoms and beliefs.

Don't want to drink on Sunday? Don't want to have an abortion? Don't want... whatever... fine, just don't do it.

When a group tries to shove their beliefs down my throat is where I lose respect and begin to fight back.

The Sunday alcohol sales ban is/was clearly based on religion. I don't argue anyone's right to believe as they wish, just don't force your beliefs on me.

I will fight for your right to worship as you please, but please understand that your beliefs don't give you the right to tell the rest of the world how to live.

Its rediculous. But thats OK, because my wife and I can each have a glass of two different types of wine and we get to bring BOTH bottles home with us.
Figured you for a wine drinker.....

I am for any and all bills both from Washington and Atlanta that take power away from those centers if idiocy and return them to the local guberments. Makes my vote count for more!

You get behind the wheel of a car one night and turn to look at a huge buck on the side of the road and run over the neighbor's kid that just pulled out of the driveway on his new bike.

Everyone and everything is a liability. We have laws to control the more serious ones. This law however has nothing to do with drunk driving and everything to do with separation of church and state. Tell me, if this is not about religion, then why are alcohol sales banned on Sunday? Why not Saturday? Or Monday? And why is it legal Mon- Sat?

Never denied that it was not there to appease religions. My original post even said that you can't legislate morality. I personally will vote no every time but that is me based on my feelings and opinions about alcohol and abuse in general.

The current laws don't seem to work too much or the penalties are too light. We still have people getting drunk, driving and killing someone else. Even if they don't kill anyone and there is no property damage, they are just given a slap on the wrist and are out doing it again. So, if for one day you can't buy it and that reduces the chance of a drunk driver on the road, then I am all for it.

I don't understand why Bible-beaters get to dictate when and where I drink my booze.

Heck, I guess I could become a catholic and drink for free every Sunday, if I were into the whole religion thing.

not really, you got people driving sat night after they already had a few, to get to the store before it closes to stock up for sunday.

So, because they are already breaking the law we should do away with or lighten the law to keep them from breaking it?

Do away with the no sunday sales thing. Make the DUI penalty much much harsher.

There's nothing wrong with buying or drinking alcohol on Sunday. It does no harm to anyone.
