    Right-to-Carry Reform Bill Introduced

    I haven't had time to read through this bill but it looks like there are a lot of changes!

    NRA-ILA :: South Carolina: Right-to-Carry Reform Bill Introduced in Columbia!
    Friday, January 14, 2011 The 119th South Carolina General Assembly began its session this week, and on Wednesday, Jan. 12, State Representative Mike Pitts (R-14) introduced H. 3292, a comprehensive Right-to-Carry reform bill.
    Joining Rep. Pitts as cosponsors are Representatives Dan Cooper (R-10) and Greg Delleney, Jr. (R-43). H. 3292 seeks to reform current law to remove certain restrictions on where one may lawfully carry a concealed firearm, establish that property owners may not set policies or rules that would prohibit the transportation or storage of legally-possessed firearms or ammunition if it is locked, out of sight, within a privately-owned motor vehicle, and create a straight recognition standard for valid permits issued by other states.
    We will be giving a more detailed analysis of this legislation, as well as report on other firearm-related bills, in the near future. In the meantime, please take a moment to call your State Representative and urge him or her to cosponsor H. 3292. Their contact information can be found here
    Link to the full bill.

    From what I have read this is a major revamping of our CC laws. It covers just about everything we've been wanting. You don't have to have your permit on you to CC. Restaurant carry is in it. Right to have firearms in your vehicle on private/workplace parking lots. All out of state permits must be honored. School carry is unclear whether you can carry on your person in a vehicle or have to secure it like before.

    You mean positive changes? Not adding more restrictions and creating other laws to make exceptions to the confusing laws?

    Well get me a chair and a glass of water I think I'm getting dizzy.

    Amen to South Carolina. At least some states are getting it right..

    Thanks I needed some good news.
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Looks like will also remove the "resident only" part of the reciprocated permits? So would honor any permit issued by any state to resident or non?

    This is going to be interesting to see how S.C. lawmakers react to these proposed changes with the Arizona shooting in the rear view mirror.
    I agree, it looks like many very positive changes....still reading it.

    I have only skimmed this bill so I don't know what it really says. I hopefully am wrong but on first glance I don't think it has a chance but we will see.

    I'm sure it's in for some strong debate; and ultimately some compromises will be made. But, we seem to have the best chance we've had in a long time for some REAL positive changes in SC gun laws.

    I hope we can even get OC this year.

    OC

    After reading it again I think 16-23-20 is allowing OC.

    Section 16-23-20. It is unlawful for anyone to carry about the person any handgun, whether concealed or not, with the intent to use it unlawfully against another person. The intent to use a handgun unlawfully against another person shall not be inferred from the mere possession, carrying, or concealment of a loaded or unloaded handgun.

    I'll be interested in finding out how they vote in committee on it.

    I've heard of reps putting their names on a bill like this and then killing it in committee.

    Help me with your reasoning. I don't doubt what you are saying, I just don't see how you get there from the portion of the proposed statute cited.

    If you are pinning it on: "...whether concealed or not...," it seems to me that that could cut both ways.

    BTW, my interest is purely academic, the only interest I have in OC is the principle that the Second Amendment means exactly and literally what it says. I have no need/desire to OC.
