    I know this was posted in the Carry Issues forum, but this is important to Carolina Glockers too.

    Hope it goes through.... that would rock... it would be a while before it actually took effect though, right?

    I hope they will still keep the CWP permit also so that we can have reciprocity for those citizens that travel to other states.

    GrassRoots GunRights is reviewing the new law.
    IIRC, it is going to call for more stringent laws for CWP holders that break the existing laws with stronger fines...

    Don't think I like that conscept.

    Also, I don't remember it dealing with reciprocity(?) at all.

    How well does GrassRoots do at keeping you up to date on the laws, etc that are happening in SC? I'm looking at joining but I don't want to just be throwing away my money when I could be investing in a group that does better lobbying for my rights.

    I've talked with a Grassroots member before and it seems like they have a big issue with the NRA's view on things.

    Any info would be helpful. Thanks.

    Sorry, but I don't truely see this as good news.

    Some people need "training" and some need to know more about the legalities of carrying.

    Call me stupid, or whatever, I don't care. I just don't think it's that great of an idea.

    Oh, and this will NEVER pass.

    GRGR does a great job of staying on track and keeping it's members informed as to what is happening at the state capitol.
    Well worth the money and invested time as we are the mainstay to the current changes made to date on the CWP laws and making SC a more friendly state to carry in.
