South Carolina: Self-Defense Bill to be Considered this Wednesday

This Wednesday, Senate Bill 308, restaurant carry legislation, will be considered by the General Laws Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee.  As previously reported, S 308 was recently amended to ensure its passage in the South Carolina Senate on April 23.  This arbitrary amendment weakened S 308 by limiting the hours a Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP) holder may lawfully carry a firearm for self-defense in a restaurant that serves alcohol.  It also does not allow CWP holders to sit in the bar area of a restaurant, if it has one.
