    Just moved to SC from Texas and it is a little different here. In Texas I could carry in a restaurant, here I can not. in Texas you can carry in the restaurant but not the bar area. I hope it passes here.

    Who woulda thought? A strange place to bar carry. I can see no CCW in a prison, but I cannot fathom any logic behind disallowing carry in a restaurant.

    So this new legislation would outlaw the NO GUNS signs seen at some restaurants? If a restaurant owner wishes to disallow CCW isn't it within his/her rights as the owner?

    When I took my class, the instructor said you can, as long as you aren't consuming alcohol. Not even one drink.

    But then he contradicted it by saying that you can't carry anywhere that has an "on-premises" alcohol license.

    Will have to ask him about that for clarification.

    & SCMaster, na.. I think what it means, is that it would allow you to carry inside those establishments that do NOT have a legal sign posted.

    The owners would still have the option to not allow them (god knows why anybody would post one of those "free killing zone" signs.. but whatever) lol

    I think it may have a decent chance in SC this year. I'm hoping NC will follow suit. Last year the bill was drafted but never brought to the floor in NC. IMHO they appropriately address the risk due to the severe consequences to one found carrying and also consuming alcohol.

    Proper concealment no one would ever know you are carrying
    Thank God I live in liberal gun state of Florida where I believed we hit over one million CCW permits

    I was amazed that it says 1 in 17 people has a permit and probably carries

    It is not 1,000,000 people in FL with permits. It is 1M permits total.

    And it's nowhere near 1/17 Floridians with a permit. FLs population is 19..4M

    I was under the impression that if you had your CWP, you could CC into any restaurant, even if they serve alcohol. If they have a no gun sign, I'd just not go in.

    The only place you could not CC is straight up bars that serve NO food, i.e saloons.....there are no places like that here that I know of.

    So true - CCW means hidden.

    Just visited SC, I believe you cannot carry if they serve alcohol currently.

    I wonder why? Do they think that CCWers will draw and shoot people as a result of alcohol in their blood? Wierd.

    In Virginia, you can carry either concealed or open into a restaurant that is ABC-ON (serves alcohol for consumption on the premises). And you can drive if you are carrying open but not if you are carrying concealed. We don't recommend people to drive while carrying for several obvious reasons. And we don't have to worry about bars because there are no bars in Virginia.

    BTW, I love Murrells Inlet. One of the best places on the southeast coast. The lowcountry of South Carolina is unique and wonderful.

    I dont live in SC but if there is no sign saying no guns them I will CC. If the establishment has that policy they by law have to have it clearly posted on the entrance. If I cant carry they dont get my business. But I dont go in and ask can I carry or CC my gun, point of CC is that no one knows you are packing. Blending in is key in a life or death situation, a shooter is more likely to take out anyone they see with a gun on their side. All bars will not let you have a gun or weapon of any kind, weird thing about gun and drunk people they dont mix well.
