    South Carolina Concealed Carry in Vehicle HB 3161

    HB 3161 General Bill, By Sellers

    A bill to amend section 16-23-20, as amended, code of laws of South Carolina, 1976, relating to the carrying of a handgun, so as to provide that a person who has been issue a concealed weapons permit may secure his weapon under a seat in a vehicle or in any open or closed storage compartment within the vehicle's passenger compartment; and to amend section 16-23-10, as amended, relating to definitions for terms regarding handguns, so as to revise the definition of the term "luggage".

    I just saw this online a couple of minutes ago.

    If this goes through, this will help to get SC legislators opening up for more ideas on concealed/open carry laws.

    Hopefully this will pass and lead to freedom to carry in restaurants that serve alcohol.

    Looks like they just resubmitted H.3298 from a year ago that didn't even make it to committee. 2009-2010 Bill 3298: Handgun - South Carolina Legislature Online It's the same bill word for word.

    Here's the discussion on H.3298

    This is not a new bill, but rather a rehash of a bill from the last legislative session as stated above.

    If this bill passes, how (or maybe why) do you propose it'll get SC legislators to open up to more ideas? Are you at all familiar with H. 3292, which among other things is a constitutional carry law?
