38. It's absolutely illegal outside the home to handle a firearm while drunk.

It's why the 'guns in bars' issues is moot. I have occasion to be in bars, while carrying, without drinking. For instance, I'm always a designated driver, I don't really drink. But there is food, and social gatherings in bars. So the prohibition on carrying into a bar is redundant/overkill and requires people like me to plan far ahead, because I don't like to leave my gun in the car for risk it will be stolen.

My understanding of the law against handling a firearm while drunk, makes me assume it would be illegal even within the confines of my home. Keep in mind, I restrict that to a narrow definition of 'possess' to mean on my person or in my hand, not just inside the home, in a safe or wherever it is stored.
