    This part get me:

    [“Three, four, five o’clock in the morning, you can be in a bar or a club -- anywhere you want to be -- with a handgun,” said Sen. John Scott, D-Richland. “The bill sends a terrible message to the community. It is worse than it was when it left the Senate. I think a lot of innocent people are going to get hurt.”

    State law does not distinguish between restaurants that serve alcohol and bars. Drawing that distinction would be difficult, lawmakers said.]

    I don't wish to call SC lawmakers simpletons, but many other states have managed to do the above. Maybe someone should teach them how to Google.

    Last year,i had got an email from Palmetto Gun Rights,after this bill failed..I must have deleted it..Anyway the email had said one of the members on the committee for this made the statement,"i hate guns"..I couldn't remember who said it,but it must have been John Scott..

    To have an on-premise alcohol license in SC, a business must sell food. So there is no legal distinction between a bar and a restaurant. although this could be solved like other states have. The problem is these jack wagons don't want to solve the problem. They want to limit the citizens rights. This is just another excuse.

    Hoping it will pass..Unless it relates to the 2a or firearms,i try my best to stay away from politics..John Scott isn't in my district..There is another black Senator who is..He is Senator Tim Scott..I know how he voted on the gun control bills the last time..I also know he will get my vote this time around..

    People should be allowed to carry as long as they don't drink while there.

    Don't hang ALL your hopes on it. Politicians are unpredictable. Whatever the results, remember it at the polls with a vote to change.

    I don't know if not having to take the classes are good or bad..I do know a couple of single moms who just can't afford the class room fees and the permit fees.That would help them alot..

    You still wont be able to drink as the bill stands now. But, at least you can grab a pizza after the ballgame; or take your significant other out to a nice restaurant without having to disarm first.

    Correct. But, there is still classroom training on state laws and qualification. But, there is no longer an 8hr requirement.

    I hope it passes. I don't drink very often and find it terribly inconvenient to have to disarm to go out to dinner with my friends. I would say not having to disarm is also good for public safety, since NDs are more likely to happen when a person is handling the firearm. Eliminate the need to handle the firearm and the chances of NDs go down significantly as it stays untouched in a a holster.

    Also SC please pass full recognition of other states permits ASAP, k thx.
