I'm reading some of these comments and it's like OMG take away my tobacco, nooooooo problem, but take away my booze, HELL no. I hate smokers, but I never heard of someone killing someone by smoking too much tobacco.

Probably not. But most stores aren't open on my city on Sunday anyway.

Only in the past 10-15 years I believe? My grandmother said they didn't when she was my age.

Right. They do not sell alcohol between those hours. (Which is odd).

Beer is five or six am until midnight. Hard liquor only until 9.

yes, and blue laws are IMO wrong and arguably unconstitutional

What is to gain from such laws? I never realized that there are such differences in state laws. Lol

I thought it was more prevalent in the Bible Belt states but apparently it's spread out all over the country. In Florida the same rules apply for lottery tickets, no sales on Sunday until noon.

Yes, but apparently only since 2008.

Also I'm not sure if alcohol sales are restricted to liquor stores except 3.2 beer (on any day), but they were until recently.

Of course why shouldn't it be. I hate blue laws

Yes, but I'm pretty sure it is restricted to the same hours as bar hours, (6 am - 2 am). That 4 hour gap makes zero sense to me, especially when those are prime hours to grab more beer on your way to an after-hours party or going out fishing.

Only started being legal on Sundays in CT 1 or 2 years ago, not after 5pm though.

Any time everywhere in my part of the country. I honestly was not aware of all the odd restrictions that are discussed here. How do big stores eg Costco handle such rules?

If you go through the line with alcohol at any store before noon on Sunday here, they will just set your alcohol under the counter and tell you it's against the law to sell it until 12pm.

I never heard of such a thing. It's 2014.

I couldn't agree with you more. Not everyone agrees that Sunday is "the Lord's day"...or that alcohol and "the Lord's day" don't go together. Yayyy Bible Belt! Lol

It that is the reasoning shouldn't it be a choice not a law. I support freedom of religion but not a law such as this.

I live in a dry county so alcohol sales are never allowed. 20 miles to the nearest liquer store.

I said yes..
Beer yes
Liquor no
Personally I think it's stupid if you sell one why not sell the other

Key West had the restriction not before noon but dropped it a while ago to make it 7am-4am daily. I think ANY restrictions are a load of bull. If something is legal, it shouldn't be legal only sometimes.

Agreed. One by here that ticked me off was a grocery that had their liquor license taken away a few years back. Not because of anything they did, but because a school moved in to the area.

I agree. Royal Palm Beach is having a vote soon to allow alcohol beverages to be sold on Sundays all day long.

After noon it can be sold. Before then, nope. Lotto tickets are not sold Sunday mornings.

Yes, but only after 12pm. Silly.
