It’s Time to Repeal the Texas Alcohol “Blue Law” – The Painman’s Weekly Rant
I’m sure you’ve been in this situation. You go grocery shopping on a Sunday morning, to beat the church crowd, and as you’re unloading your cart the clerk tells you that you can’t buy that load of beer you have. Why? Because of the stupid alcohol blue law here in Texas.
There are a variety of blue laws that ban the sale of certain things on Sundays and alcohol is one of them. On Sunday’s in Texas, you can’t purchase beer or wine in a grocery store until noon. Well, I’m here to echo your sentiment that that law sucks. Waiting until noon is BS. Many games and races start at noon, so by the time I get home from a beer run, I’ve already missed something big.
The blue law is an archaic law that needs to go away. Very far away.
