Thread: New South Carolina Bill Would Allow Guns On School Property

  1. #21
    The badge issue has been beaten to death on many other forums and threads and almost universally considered a bad idea. Forget about them. The SC CWP covers a handgun less than 12" along its maximun measurement and nothing else. Pepper spray, tasers are legal and require no permit. Other devices such as knives and batons are covered under other laws.

    As mentioned the badge is a bad idea if for no other reason a REAL policeman or woman is not going to like it.

    In the concealed carry world I've finally realized it's a lot more 'fun' to practice being a free citizen than a government employee.

    Anyone carrying a Badge that does not have a legal reason is asking for trouble.

    I for one would really like to see this bill go through - I sometimes take / pickup my kids from school.

    I still don't see where I can keep up with the updates on when they will vote on it, etc. I have the link for the bill saved so I can check it but I can't tell from that whether it'll be a year or what until we know the result.

    I hate waiting....on day 2 since CWP received by SLED....argh.

    You can check on the current status here. Bill Information - South Carolina Legislature Online

    It is Senate bill S-347

    This first link shows the present status of the bill.

    Bill Information - South Carolina Legislature Online

    From that link you can see that it has been referred to a Senate Subcommittee chaired by Sen. Jake Knotts who is not a big gun supporter.

    02/02/09 Senate Referred to Subcommittee: Knotts (ch), Massey, Coleman

    You can follow the status of that subcommittee here on the meetings schedule for the Senate and look for a subcommittee on S-347.

    Meeting Schedule - Gressette Bldg. - South Carolina Legislature Online

    As you can tell it has not been even scheduled for a subcommittee session yet. Once it gets out of subcommittee they can either send it to the full Judiciary committee or to the Senate floor with the OK of the full committee. Once that happens it will be placed on the Senate calendar.

    Senate Calendars - South Carolina Legislature Online

    After it is placed on the calendar it is anyone's guess when they will actually discuss it and may be sent back to committee or whatever.

    Once it passes thre Senate the whole thing starts over in the House.

    South Carolina Legislature Online

    Since the legislative session is two years they have until June 2010 to actually act on this so don't get too excited.

Notice that is says from the time it was received, not from the time you mailed it or took the course. There is some grey area here and I dount that a judge is going to find SLED in violation for taking 92 days or that the mailman takes his sweet time getting it to your mailbox.

    If they fail to notify you and issue a permit but later find out that you were a mass murderer then they can reposses it.
    Which is why I stated that when they cash your check, the time starts. You know they have received it. I agree the jodge is probably not gonna bust sled for it being 92 days. However, the law says 90 days. They have to issue the permit.

    Again, in the past few months, everyone I know has gotten their permit. ALL of them within 90 days from the time the check was cashed. Not to mention I got people. LOL
