And then there were four: with North Carolina's new law, only four states still ban carrying guns in places that serve alcohol

The above map needs to be updated.  Note that with Illinois recently passing a law (though people won't be able to carry until next year) and now with North Carolina, only four states ban carrying guns in places that serve alcohol.  The bigger news here might be letting people lock their guns in university parking lots.  From the Associated Press:
North Carolina lawmakers have approved a bill greatly expanding where concealed handguns are legally allowed.
The Republican-backed bill approved by both the House and Senate on Tuesday allows concealed-carry permit holders to take firearms into bars and restaurants and other places where alcohol is served as long as the owner doesn't expressly forbid it.
The measure will also allow concealed-carry permit holders to store weapons in locked cars on the campus of any public school or university. Guns will also now be allowed on greenways, playgrounds and other public recreation areas. . . .

I have found from talking to a local officer in Arco Idaho, that while state law says I can carry into a bar, but not while drinking, the police are still confused and think the ban is in place.

Map is a bit over-simplified. Examples include TX infamous 51% rule and WA "if the under 21 are barred from an area, so are guns."
