I really don't have a problem with the House version of the bill but rather than the underhanded, misleading way that both versions have been portrayed to the legislature and to the public. When the possible problems with the House version were pointed out instead of directly addressing the possibility the ones asking the question were called fools and made fun of saying that it couldn't possibly be true and then pointing out problems with the Senate version that had already been corrected.
I have lost all respect for SC GrassRoots on the way they have handled this by even resorting to name calling and making fun of representatives names. SLED pointed out the possiblilty of the underage carrying being legal and no one has directly addressed this rather trying to use some obscure reference to the definition of training and that SC could not even get reciprocity with itself under the version.
Where in this bill is the ability for anyone in SC to make a formalized agreement with FL to recognize each others permits and who has the authority to even make such an agreement. It sure appears that this is the exact same argument the SCGR is using about SLED being removed from verifying training or whatever their latest complaint is.
All I want is an honest assessment of the results of either bill and what the benefits and pitfalls of either are. So far all I have gotten is that it will result in being able to carry in 30+ states. I have asked for a list of those states and no one will respond with what those states are because they can't be sure what the results of the law will be. At least with the Senate version I have been supplied with a list of states that will be the result of its passage.
I cannot shake the feeling that with the House verion I am being fed another bunch of "Trust Me's, I know what's best for you" but "I really have an ulterior motive for it" and the main one is to prove that I am better than the NRA.
