    I'm confused as we frequent state parks. There is a nice sized sign at the entrance of every one we have been in that says "No firearms allowed".

    Are you saying that since I have a CWP I can legally have my firearm inside?

    i felt the same way as you but i followed the link and it clearly says that ccw is permited as long as you have a valid permit. i will be contacting sled directly on tuesday and ask this question. i believe they will just direct me back to the web site but it won't hurt to ask. as soon as i get an answer i will be sure to post it.

    Can't wait to see what SLED's interpretation is...

    The parks are pretty laid back as they also have a 'no alcohol' policy. They seem to turn a slight blind eye to it as long as you don't have it in front of them and you don't have parties in the cabins/campgrounds.

    I'd be very interested to hear what SLED says also.

    I too live in Sangaree. Carry in State Parks is OK BUT NOT into any buildings.

    CW allowed as an exception in buildings at rest stops.

    Fellow CWP Holders here in the state really need to join SC's Grass Roots org. All of the laws are very well discussed and picked apart there. We even get the laws changed to make that license a more user friendly item everyday.

    Here is a link:http://www.scfirearms.org/

    I have most always renewed my membership through the mail or at the GrassRootsSC table at the Gun Show in Ladson (because I work it) and have never tried the CC route.

    I will PM you some information though, let me make a phone call first.

    i agree about the number of locals. i think there's a lot more than we realize. maybe we can all organize a meeting sometime and discuss local ccw issues and experiences.

    Come to the Ladson Gun Show (FairGounds location) this weekend and join the SC's GrassRoots.

    I'm tellin ya, it's the best way I know of to stay current in the changes that WE MAKE HAPPEN in this state.

    You can pick up a copy of the book, South Carolina GUN LAW written by some very knowledgable people, right here in our state. Why, you might even get it autographed, I don't know!

    I'll be working the SC GrassRoots Table Saturday morning, if you want to stop by and chat. The table is located directly across from the area you pay ($7.00) to get in.
