    When did none become better than some? Is this the new math I keep hearing the youngins talk about?

    Perhaps with the number of gun companies relocating to SC and considering relocating our esteemed legislature will try to appear more "pro gun".

    I hope we start work on a STAND ALONE restaurant bill in January and not wait till April. I also wish I got six months vacation.
    Hopefully, I can make you feel a bit better. Cross north of the Mason-Dixon line and you are legally able to carry in a bar, and have a few if you'd like.

    Personally, I don't recommend it, but it's not illegal to do.

    I sure hope SC gets it right soon.

    As I may have said before, it is not the alcohol that bothers me it is the going and coming from my car to a restaurant, particularly at night, that bothers me. If the restaurant has any credentials it probably serves alcohol so I am not allowed to CC into the restaurant--therefore I am unarmed when I trek back and forth to/from my car from/to the restaurant in a dangerous parking garage or on a darkened lonely street or even a dark parking lot. Sure I could CC--who would know--but if the "what if" happened, how do I explain my presence in a restaurant with a firearm--I might get a pass legally but I sure as heck will get hung out to dry civilly.

    the carry with a paid government permission is now allowed in a place that charges admission (unless otherwise posted, and/or you must leave if asked by owner authority). there is a debate if you can constitutionally carry if you have the government permission slip

    one of the worst things is you are leaving your firearm in an unprotected parking lot. doubtful if anything civil would happen to you. but ti is a shame that the government is taking the choice away. if the private business didn't want you to carry there, that should be between you and the business owner. if the owner didn't want me to carry there then i would not give them my money

  8. Is this really going back to legislators to look at in January? If so, are there any petitions to sign, or specific people that need to be written too? I think/know it is a good idea to have your weapon in a restaurant , whether or not they serve alcohol. If you are carrying, you should be a responsible individual and watch your alcohol content, if you choose to drink. I personally wont..

  9. I have grown increasingly frustrated since I got my CWP with the alcohol issue. There are so many of my favorite places that serve booze that I don't feel comfortable going into anymore since they are gun-free zones. I can understand a standalone beer joint but Outback? Give me a break. I hope this gets resolved in 2014!!

    Gotta write your elected lawmakers. Have friends and family do it too.

    Change in the law is hopefully coming soon. It sure has been discussed and as I have said before, I am very SA oriented and do not CC that much, but the ONE MAIN TIME I want to CC is when I go out to dine AT NIGHT, when my SA is compromised coming from and going to my car which may be parked who the heck knows where on a dark street or garage. To me this is not about being drunk and being CC and someone in our legislature should understand that allowing CC where alcohol is served is not going to turn SC into free for all at the bar with guns blazing. If you should be drunk or above a stated limit (say 08 per driving) the law should also be extremely harsh, take away your CCWP and make it clear that any injuries incurred to others will be criminally and civilly available. I am sick and tired of the irresponsibility that is rampant in this country--do as you want, moral or immoral and always have an excuse for it. We have turned into a very sick society led by a very sick narcissistic moslem communist (well I got that off my chest, as well).
