I know we have case-law for places like McDonalds and the mall... but wouldn't places that sell alcohol but NOT for consumption on the premesis be a pretty good "given" as far as NOT being a public gathering. Since the law states: A public gathering is defined and includes, but is not limited too, athletic or sporting events, churches or church functions, political rallies and/or functions, publicly owned or operated buildings, and establishments at which alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the premises. Since they used the language "sold for consumption", doesn't that automatically mean that places that just sell it (package stores, gas stations, grocery stores) might as well be in the same category as McDonalds and the mall? As long as they don't meet any other prohibitive criteria. Maybe it's just nit-picking stuff, but I have seen case-law referenced a few times in various posts as the "only" places we can surely carry. Since they didn't include "ANY PLACE" that sells alcohol, and if they didn't intend to include grocery stores, gas stations etc... they would have specified "ANY PLACE" right there in that part of the law... doesn't it hold just as much water as case-law?
