    The sign did/does not need to meet the requirements as they are not covered by the sign law to start with. They were/are covered by a different law. You can have it in your glove box etc. on campus as prescribed by law.

    SECTION 23-31-220 (Sign Law) Only covers private property.

  3. I support this bill 100%....my only question is what about people who DON'T have a CWP, but can still legally carry in the glove box due to the SC law? It's legal without a permit....so are they excluded and would have to be inconvienenced if they needed to pick their child up from school??

    I really like the part about the restaurant thing....rarely do I drink and I think it sucks that just because they serve it to others, I cannot carry!

    keep0njeepin0n, this bill only applies to CWP holders. If you don't have a CWP then you can't have a firearm on school grounds. At a private school you can have one in your vehicle if you don't have a CWP only if you get written permission from the school. School carry is now law.

    Restaurant carry that serves alcohol was removed from the bill. We need to contact our reps and make it known that we want that right.

  5. Ok, so I'm confused...is this now a law, or still a Bill?????

  7. Ok cool, so now what about the second part of the bill that was to allow carrying inside a restaurant where alcohol is served for consumption???

    Like I said above it was removed and there is nothing in the works for it as of today.

    Ok, so I go to Clemson, and I normally carry my gun in my truck when I get out of school, and make sure I take it out on school nights (in other words, I always have it in my truck except when I'm going to school). I do not have a CWP, but I had my first night of the class last night, and my final night is tonight. I asked the guy (who is currently with the Anderson County Sheriff's Dept.) about this law and when I mentioned "...for CWP holders", he corrected me and said that it applied to everyone. Now I tried reading the bill for myself, but let's face it, I don't have a law degree, so understanding that thing is dang near impossible. I need clarification on how the law is actually interpreted. I mean no disrespect to cops, but he fit the normal stereotype (he loved to talk). So did he not know what he was talking about and just trying to act like he knew one more thing that I didn't, or can I carry in my truck without a CWP on school grounds? The reason I ask is because even though I'm taking the class now, I'm not eligible to apply until November.
