Restaurant Carry Bill Passes SC Senate Subcommittee – Video

senate hearing of restaurant carryColumbia SC | 2/13/13

The restaurant carry bill S308 passed a senate subcommittee today to be voted on by the state assembly. Currently, South Carolina law prohibits concealed weapons (CWP) holders to carry in restaurants that serve alcohol. If the restaurant carry bill passes, it will allow concealed weapons (CWP) holders to carry in restaurants that serve alcohol as long as they do not consume alcoholic beverages.

Pro gun groups like Palmetto Gun Rights objected to the penalty if a concealed weapons (CWP) holder is caught consuming alcoholic beverages while carrying. Many citizens testified stating that they feel they should have the right to have a glass of wine with the meal while exercising their Second Amendment right. Those on the subcommittee agreed, but felt that if they amended that part of the bill it could possibly die in the senate.

Here are the five members of the subcommittee and their contact information:

Senator Shane Massey (chairman) (803) 212-6024

Senator Katrina Shealy (803) 212-6056 (bill sponsor)

Senator Creighton Coleman (803) 212-6032

Senator Sean Bennett (803) 212-6116 (bill sponsor)

Senator Floyd Nicholson (803) 212-6000

    This is all smoke and mirrors. The South Carolina Constitution, which is the supreme law in SC, states,
    “THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”

    These senators care nothing for the “Supreme Law of South Carolina.” It would take a constitutional amendment, voted on by the citizens of SC, to make ONE SINGLE LEGAL GUN LAW in SC.

    I respect them trying to clear up this mess but ignoring our State Constitution, and passing even another GUN LAW, is treason against the citizens of SC.

    WE ALREADY HAVE THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS TO BEAR ARMS. WE DO NOT NEED TO CONTINUE TO MAKE NEW FIREARM LAWS. THE RIGHT TO CARRY AND PROTECT OUR FAMILIES HAS ALREADY BEEN SET IN STONE. TO BE ABLE TO CARRY AND PROTECT OUR SELF’S AND FAMILIES IN A RESTAURANT OR ANY OTHER PLACE IN AMERICA IS A NO BRAINIER. THE PROBLEM IS THE LAWS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN WRITTEN ARE NOT BEING USED AGAINST THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS THE CRIMINALS WILL ALWAYS HAVE AWAY TO GET THEIR HANDS ON A FIREARM AND NOT THINK TWICE ABOUT USING IT ILLEGALLY. I PERSONALLY I HAVE A FAMILY,FRIENDS AND A COUNTRY I LOVE DEARLY AND I WILL DO WHAT EVER IS NECESSARY TO PROTECT THEM NO MATTER IF WERE IN A RESTAURANT EATING BREAKFAST LUNCH OR DINNER OR OUT IN PUBLIC THIS IS MY DUTY AS A HUSBAND FATHER GRANDFATHER AND TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOT.
