    Default advice on S.C. CWP

    I'm new to this forum and need some advice, when I was twenty and had just moved out of my parents house I lost my job and wrote 6 bad checks for which warrants where taking out for me, I was arrested for the warrants and paid the buisiness that I wrote the checks to and paid court cost, this is considered a misdemeaner in S.C.. I am 16 years older now and have not had so much as a traffic ticket since, the question is will S.C. allow me to get a cwp with this stupid decision I made 16 years ago hanging over my head

    thanks for the advice, the guidlines are so grey on what S.C. will or will not turn down, I wouldn't want to put the money and time into getting a cwp if it's gonna get turned down in the end

    Put on your application - Bad checks 16 years ago but all cleared - and you should be fine. If you want to call SLED and make sure but I never heard of them turning someone down for that.

    You must be a resident, you must be 21 or older, and you must be able to legally own a firearm. That means no felony convictions and certain misdemeanor charges like criminal domestic violence and violations of SC section 16-23-465 (unlawfully carrying a pistol or firearm onto the premises of a business selling alcoholic beverages for on-site consumption).

    I got this from pages 28-29 of the book, South Carolina Gun Law. You can get this book off of the SC Grassroots website.

    This should not be a problem for you, unless one of the misdemeanor convictions was for domestic violence.

    If possible, get the actual dates from the jurisdiction in which you were charged. Include an attachment that lists each one separately with the dates and outcome of restitution, etc.... Just give the complete details and You will be fine.

    South Carolina is a must issue state. You don't need to do any of that stuff these guys are saying. There are only three questions you must answer (yes to all):

    Are you a South Carolina resident or qualified non‐resident (Section 23‐31‐210, SC Code of Laws)? Yes No
    Do you certify successful completion of handgun training (Section 23‐31‐210, SC Code of Laws)? Yes No
    Are you allowed by all applicable federal/state laws and court orders to possess a handgun? Yes No

    You need to sign the form to affirm the following is true:
     I am eligible for a South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permit pursuant to Sections 23‐31‐210/215, SC Code of Laws.
     I am not prohibited from possessing a handgun pursuant to Section 922, Title 18, United States Code.
     I will notify SLED immediately if I become prohibited by federal/state laws or court orders from possessing a handgun.
     I acknowledge false information may cause denial of my application and subject me to any applicable criminal penalties.
     My signature certifies I have reviewed the entire application and all information on it is true and correct.

    No problem!
