Thread: Can I posses a weapon

  1. Can I posses a weapon

    I have a concealed hand gun permit from massachusetts (resident) and non resident license from Texas. I will be traveling to South Carolina and staying there for several months. Question can keep my weapon in my residence or car. I know that SC doesn't accept my licence to carry. What are my options if any. Can I keep my weapon in my residence? Car?

    Cool

    Since you obviously can legally own a firearm with a MA license you may carry a handgun in your vehicle loaded in the glove compartment or console (don't stuff it under the seat )and transport it from your vehicle to a rented motel room loaded. Legal residence is no problem. I think you will find a major difference in the attitude about firearm ownership between MA and SC. Enjoy our state.

    Hey Navy,

    I wonder if we could start charging for a Googling service?

    I was kind of thinking this was about to become a math problem..

    Two handguns are traveling towards each other, one starts in Baltimore at 30MPH, the other in Atlanta at 5 MPH. Who gets shot, and where?

    Hey coach: Good question. The answer is simple. If you sum up the sides of the isosceles triangle where each point is located at your starting points and destination point and triangulate the result with an intricate and delicate use of an effective metered gigiframis, the result will not only tell you who was shot, but where they were shot with an accuracy of plus or minus 3 inches. I got this information from our federal government, who, as you well know, are experts and I trust immensely.
    PS: If this thread writer is "travelling" from MA to SC, he had better check the regs not only as quoted herein for SC but the regs for the states he is passing thru; could find some problems regardless of what he does with his firearm.

    Oh-oh-oh-oh...

    Everybody was Google-Fu fighting, those cats were fast as lightning
    In fact it was a little bit fright'ning, but they fought with expert timing

    There was funky China men from funky Chinatown
    They were chopping them up, they were chopping them down
    It's an ancient Chinese art, and everybody knew their part
    From a feint into a slip, then I'm kickin' from the hip

    Everybody was Google-Fu fighting, those cats were fast as lightning
    In fact it was a little bit fright'ning, but they fought with expert timing
    There was funky Billy Chin and little Sammy Chung
    He said, here comes the big boss, let's get it on
    We took the bow and made a stand, started swaying with the hand
    A sudden motion made me skip, now we're into a brandnew trip

    Everybody was Google-Fu fighting, those cats were fast as lightning
    In fact it was a little bit fright'ning, but they did it with expert timing

    Oh-oh-oh-oh...

    Everybody was Google-Fu fighting, those cats were fast as lightning
    In fact it was a little bit fright'ning, make sure you have expert timing

    Oh-oh-oh-oh...

    Google-Fu fighting, had to be fast as lightning...
