Well, you have re-opened one of the great debates.
That statute uses the language "in any room in which any person is consuming liquor
". Keyboard lawyers will argue that elsewhere the statutes define liquor as "wine and spirits", excluding beer. Thus, if they are only selling beer you could legally be armed.
The other side of the debate is that approximately 99.44% of policemen and prosecutors would not appreciate that distinction and would be perfectly willing to prosecute someone carrying in a beer-only Class D establishment.
Bottom line, it is ultimately up to a jury. If someone has the time, money, and willingness to risk a felony conviction they are welcome to volunteer as a test case.
