Ok, how bout this one? Yesterday, I had a meeting at a Marriott Hotel in their corporate offices there. I entered the lobby cc and immediately noticed a bar located in the lobby. Of course, my first thoughts were DAMNED.....can't keep going, can't go back & leave it in the car! Our recent discussions here pertaining to "parking lots, public gatherings and serving alcohol came to mind. So, I just kept on going and went on down the hallway to the corporate offices where I had to walk directly through some large corporate conference going on at the hotel. Of course it was lunch time and about 200 suits were "publicly gathering" in the convention area outside the meeting rooms. I walked through them and attended my meeting before reversing course 45 minutes later through the same obstacles to my car. Questions: 1. Was I legal or "under the radar" taking my chances? 2. What would the current law suggest I do in this situation? The only "legal" avenue was for me to go back to my car, drive all the way home and leave my gun there before returning 1 hour late. 3. Would the hotel fall under the "serving alcohol" prohibitions? 4. Did the corporate convention in the conference area of the main lobby of the hotel constitute a "public gathering"? Your thoughts?
