Thread: Raising prices on CWP applications...

  1. Raising prices on CWP applications...

    I've been hearing about this for a while but tonight was the first time I hears a reasoning behind it. According to our local news channel the reason they're going up is because SLED is so backed up with applications. Now I hope this is not true because it means 1 of 2 things or possibly both: 1)they're trying to discourage people from going through the process of obtaining a CWP by raising the price or 2)they doing it simply to increase state revenue because the demand is so high.
    I thought about #1 today and my thought was that if I were an applicant for a CWP I would be harassing the hell out of SLED telling them that I worked 7 days a week and didn't have the time or money at my disposal to have the luxury of taking a CWP course, and them denying me my 2nd amendment right to bear arms because of that is 100% unconstitutional! Not that they would care though.
    But then in the case of #2...I've also heard this argument when S115 was introduced, that the state would lose all the money it gets from CWP applications. But if SC is exploiting the people's interest in taking advantage of their 2nd amendment right in an attempt to increase revenue, then we are no better than NY or CT or CO!

    What's the cost rising to?

    That's one thing I love about Ks, when they ended up with a surplus for three years running --- they REDUCED the application cost and are talking about whether or not to reduce it again!

    $75 if the bill passes.

    Well perhaps if S115 gets pushed hard enough then we won't have to worry about it.

    Andey,

    Where did you see a price of $75

    SC House bill H 3822 doubles the price, $100, for the CWP permit but also creates a non-resident permit for $150.
    I think they are combining the good and bad to get it passed.

    That's what was said on the news. Who knows what they were talking about.

    Which one.. -- Reps. Pitts, Loftis or Funderburk?

    Even if Constitutional Carry passes, I want my CWP.
