A man was killed in the parking lot of an Olive Garden here in SC on the 29th. This happens to be an Olive Garden that my family and I eat ate pretty regular. We went there last night (the next day) and was asking some folks about it. From what I was told the guy had eaten inside and was going to his car when he was shot. They believe he knew the person that shot him. I was also told that the guy that was killed had a police record and it's believed that it was a revenge meeting. Just another case of why I should be able to carry in a place that serves alcohol in SC. But the sad fact is when I go there, I have to disarm because of the SC laws. Someone waiting in line at Olive Garden made a statement, "this is why we don't need people running around with permits carrying guns". I quickly reminded him that the person that got shot could not have had a permit with a police record and this is proof that the BG could care less what the law says. I told this guy that the only person these laws are affecting are the law abiding person that is not going to cause any problems. He then looked at me and asked..."I take it that you are one of those that carry a gun" which I responded..."it's against the law in here and only the BG have them in here"....turned around and walked away.
BG or not...prayers for the family of the man that was killed.
