Frank N Stein: I see subby is still running with the "THE STREETS WILL RUN RED WITH BLOOD" hysteria
Frank N Stein: Saiga410: Just a simple progression of removing restrictions until you run into a problem. We have allowed carry with training and removed some location restrictions without any major problems... If this causes problems we can assume we have found the floor. If no problems then we can go even farther.Alaska was awesome in regards to concealed carry. Coming from Illinois to a place with constitutional carry was great. Same with open carry. Though I rarely concealed carry, there were quite a few times where I went for a hike with my bear gun, then stopped at a place to grab a bite to eat or something.
DrBenway: When I read stories like this, I'm reminded of old Westerns where lawless towns were cleaned up and made safe for citizens to walk down the street without wearing a gun. In retrospect, I now see how very silly that idea was. Thoroughly and utterly unprogressive.

In retrospect, I now see how very silly that idea was. Thoroughly and utterly unprogressive.The most iconic moment in the lore of "the Old West" was the shoot-out at the OK Corral. A shootout that occurred when the local sheriff tried to enforce a city ordinance banning the carrying of guns within town limits. I wonder why the NRA glosses over that fact when they wax nostalgic about about those days? To them Wyatt Earp should be cast as the villain of the piece, trying to deny the Constitutional rights of innocent gun owners, no?Part of me wishes that something like the shower scene from The Rock happens, and all these tough-guy "I'll carry my piece where I wanna carry my piece!" just blast away at each other in a Stuckey's over an unkind word and someone dropping a plate.I mean, surely if it's impermissible to wear a gun and have any alcohol in a bar, these law-abiding citizens - who have many times let us know that if gun laws were tighter, they'd own all the illegal guns they can fit in an underground bunker - would never dream of imbibing the Bad Decision Juice while wearing hip-iron, right?The total lack of DWI/DUIs in South Carolina is further proof that alcohol and firearms law may as well be gospel in the Palmetto State.
ManateeGag: OK. then let's also let people drive without a license or training. what's the worst that could happen?
Summoner101: Having never been, how much in SC is worth saving at this point?
TonnageVT: Ideally, evolution would happen and the idiots will shoot themselves.
justtray: FnkyTwn: I don't see what the problem is with allowing responsible gun owners to carry weapons anywhere they want. It's a little like Pit Bulls in that, until they do something horrible, they're perfectly fine dogs, and then if something bad happens it's the owners fault, and then that's what the court system is for.Ya im with this guy. If youre going to allow open or conceal carry, i dont see why youre limiting the location unless you can show that certain locations are inherently more risky. Maybe alcohol consumption qualifies, but id like to see data supporting that.Conversely i support individual businesses not allowing guns on their premises if they choose.
Lord_Baull: We need training to operate a backhoe. We need training to drive a car. We need training to swing a bat. We need training to use a computer. We need training to even friggin operate a cash register.But to carry a tool that can easily cause the death of another individual through misuse? Meh.
