    SC Bill passes House now in Senate

    I was reading in the forum and watching the news at the same time. I think I heard this right. A Bill has passed the House by an "overwhelming majoity" and is now in the Senate. "The Bill would allow concealed carry in South Carolina if you have a valid permit." "Right now, South Carolina only recognizes permits from states that have similar standards." I hope I heard correctly. This would be outstanding. I have not followed this closely because I don't travel much. If I heard wrong I'll appologize ahead of time for a premature post and getting you travelers hopes up.

    Let's hope this goes through. I, for one, would love to take SC off of my no-go list - it's kind of hard to drive to Florida from VA without passing through the Carolinas.

    I hope this bill passes.

    I'm covered in all 50 States, but would like to see all legal gun carriers be able to carry.

    Hoping as well but also read that SLED is opposed and the bill will face stiff opposition in the Senate.

    Calling grassroots today to see what I can do to help and will also contact my Senator.

    Regards,

    It would be nice if all states could agree and honor the permits from other states. I also think that anyone who abuses the permit should face the maxium fine and possible jail time plus haveing their permit pulled if convicted.

    the problem is, with an angry prosecutor and jury, you're already SCREWED if you use a gun. what's to stop them from sticking it to you and miscoonstruing the event even if you were justified?

    So far so good. Yes... it takes the decision away from SLED and makes it automatic. If you take ours we take yours. And in spite of SLED oppostition it still goes forward. Keep working!

    South Carolina Law Enforcment Division = SLED

    The current law empowers them to research and enter into agreements. Which they are slow to do and picky about doing...

    The new law takes that arbitrary step away from them.

    I hope it goes. I feel pretty solid my Senator will go for it. He's a CWP holder himself. It has probably also helped that a fella local to me offered the CWP course to any legislator that wanted it a couple years ago.
