Mensagem: 

Saying the law will stop the entry of something doesn't quit fit the bill. 

 

The new law will forbid the entry or sale of the alcholic drinks but a law can't stop the entry.  After all, the law has to be enforced.

 

How about:

 

"The new law, when enforced by local police and officials, will halt the entry of alchoholic beverages into concerts and parties." 

 

Make sense?
