Sounds like it is a good step in the right direction! Best of luck to you guys.

You are not paranoid if They are actually out to get you, however, They probably are not and you probably are.
This firearms/alcohol business is such legal crap. All any state has to say is:
Consumption of alcohol while carrying fireams in any manner is unlawful.
I guess that's too simple for legislators and legal eagles. Presense of alcohol doesn't mean anything--it's the consumption that gets fools in trouble.

I just wish we could get as many prohibitions on legislators shooting off their mouths as they impose on us for wanting to shoot a gun at a range...

They finally changed ours last year, you can carry anywhere except the Governors mansion, unless it's legally posted with the approved AG sign.... and that it applies only to buildings and no outside areas can be posted.

Would be awesome if I could visit my family in SC and have my GA permit honored. Good luck!
Better to have and to hold, than to leave in the nightstand.....
Has the govenor commented if it would be signed or vetoed if/when presented? WI before its new govenor was 1 vote away from over-ridding the veto on its second attempt to getting a CCW. This would be wonderful to see. Is the state of SC a gun friendly state? Cant say I have been there but would love to visit sometime.

Lookin' good for SC defensive carriers. I hope NC gets the message . . and takes action too.
Does SC have Immunuty from Civil Liability laws if a defensive shooting is determined to be lawfully justifiable?

The biggest hurdle for passage will be in the Legislature.
Governor Haley campaigned that she wanted to help reform CCW laws to make them more user friendly. I hope she walks the walk.
It looks like the language for keeping a firearm in your car might be more restrictive that what we now have. It looks like you have to have a lockable glovebox or console if you don't have a trunk.

This one I can answer:) I live in Bamberg, which is Nikki Haley(our new govenors home town), and Me and my father in law are leaders of the SC Tea Party Coalition, which is a group of about 45-50 tea party groups throughout the state.... I have been in constant contact with Nikki personally, and she will sign this bill. If it doesnt make it to her desk, she said she will do something herself to get alot of the CWP laws changed. I have full respect in Haley and believe she is gonna be a awesome govenor for us CWP holders!
