I was reading on packing.org that it is illegal to carry openly or concealed in NM at any place that sells alcohol. This means in addition to all of the places we know and love that are off-limits in GA for selling alcohol for on premisis consumption, they also can't carry in liquor stores, many gas stations, grocery stores, etc. The gas staion part really really sucks.
Other than work, home, and fast food, the grocery store and gas station are the most common stops I make.

The gas station, to me is one of the PRIMARY places that I'd want to be able to carry, from an everyday standpoint. The permit is pretty much useless there because of this. My two cents. I wonder if it is legal there to carry if you pay at the pump without going inside?
The statute uses the word "in," which ought to exclude carry while "out." Or so my young son's books showing the different uses of such words would seem to indicate. It also seems that exception number 4 would have you covered.

30-7-3. Unlawful carrying of a firearm in licensed liquor establishments.
A. Unlawful carrying of a firearm in an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages consists of carrying a loaded or unloaded firearm on any premises licensed by the regulation and licensing department for the dispensing of alcoholic beverages except:
(1) by a law enforcement officer in the lawful discharge of his duties;
(2) by the owner, lessee, tenant or operator of the licensed premises or his agents, including privately employed security personnel during the performance of their duties;
(3) by a person in that area of the licensed premises usually and primarily rented on a daily or short-term basis for sleeping or residential occupancy, including hotel or motel rooms;
(4) by a person on that area of a licensed premises primarily utilized for vehicular traffic or parking; or
(5) for the purpose of temporary display, provided that the firearm is:
(a) made completely inoperative before it is carried onto the licensed premises and remains inoperative while it is on the licensed premises; and
(b) under the control of the licensee or an agent of the licensee while the firearm is on the licensed premises.
B. Whoever commits unlawful carrying of a firearm in an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages is guilty of a fourth degree felony".
