South Carolina - Reciprocity??

What is it about South Caroliina that keeps the number of states they honor so LOW? I would think SC would be a pretty progressive "gun state".

South Carolina is the only bump on Hwy 95 in the south for a lot of people, me included.

According to http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...eport/1834361/ Governor Nikki Haley is for reciprocity with all states. If the legislature passes a bill, looks like she'll sign it. (Hope she meant recognition since she can't hope to achieve reciprocity with all states.)

Reciprocity is generally based upon the acceptance of laws and regulations in considered states. I live in Virginia and South Carolina just recognized us a few years ago (it is a mutual reciprocity). Since I go down there several times a year, that is a good thing for me. Beautiful state with wonderful people, but they don't have anywhere near the freedom to carry that we do here in Virginia.

We (SC) require an 8-hr class and proof of proficiency at the range. Many states only require a clear background check, and SC doesn't not accept that.

Yep. Here in GA classes are not required. Getting a permit is as simple as filling out some paperwork and going next door to the police department to get fingerprinted.

It stinks since I go to SC regularly on business but I can respect their laws. I do hope they change though.

Yeah, I know your pain. I live nearer Augusta GA than to Columbia, and I ended up getting a New Hampshire non-resident license, just so I could carry in GA. By having SC and NH licenses, I can carry in "most states". But my daughter lives in MD, so I'm screwed there. I have to stop at each state line and change the location, or condition, of my pistol. In MD, I have to have it locked in a gun case in the trunk, and have the ammo secured separately. But as soon as I get back to VA, I reload and put it into the glove box, etc., etc.

I was always told the the former Sen. Jake Knotts was the reason why SC didn't recognize Ga. Now he is gone . Also our Governor has gone on record saying she will support reciprocity with Ga or any other state and would also support open carry for citizens of SC. Don't believe me, check out her Facebook page Gov. Nikki Haley . She reads and comments on face book as her free time allows .

My CO permit plus UT non-resident get me most places I want to go except SC. It's got to be tough when GA and SC can't carry across the state line there.......

You only have to have your weapon secured in a lockable console without a permit in SC. This is information direction from the State Patrol.I live in GA and my brother lives in SC. I visit quite often and have been pulled over before only to inform the officer that I was going to open a console containing a gun. He didn't care, he only watched as I place the gun on the dash to get my information out.

National Reciprocity would prevent this.

This is something you do NOT want the feds to be involved in. Very bad idea.

True and the danger is that they will try to set some sort of "common rules and regulations" using the lowest common denominator as their model. They would do this under the guise of the interstate commerce clause, which has been so bastardized over the years with all manner of evil things. So a state like my state, where the carrying of firearms is pretty much a normal and easy thing, will be expected to adhere to the "norms" of a state where there are tighter restrictions on how and where you may carry. I much prefer the autonomy of the states over some central busy body interfering with how we go about armed.

Not a good thing at all when the feds enter the game.
