Almost all law represents the imposition of moral belliefs. This would include the laws protecting private property, enfourcing equal rights, restricting slander and outlawing other forms of murder.

Protecting people's rights, well look above.. You can't not have equal rights with the above.
Restricting slander, same look above.
Outlawing other forms of murder? Such as? Murder in general affects my rights to life liberty and happiness as well.
What's your point other than you have none? And yes, I know I used a double negative in there.
George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.
The feared apocalyptic predictions did not occur in either case. The Slippery Slope did not happen.
You still can't get drunk while carrying. Depending on the city ordinance, I doubt you could even have a single beer while carrying.
Simply being in the building enjoying some hot-wings and shooting pool with some bros does not make your gun fly out of the holster and kill people.
Or perhaps, you are not drinking. But another guy is, he is big and drunk and mean and wants to kick your ass, and you know he can. How simple it would be to pull that gun out and shut his mouth. You can say this is fantasy or whatever, but this is irresponsible and if you have any sense at all, you realize that there is risk.
