Important South Carolina CCW Reciprocity Legislation Introduced (RKBA Alert!)
NRA-ILA ^

Posted on 01/21/2007 9:11:45 AM PST by BlueOneGolf

The 117th South Carolina General Assembly has convened and pro-gun State Representative Greg Delleney (R-43) has introduced legislation to make South Carolina a straight recognition state for Right-to-Carry (RTC) permits.

H 3212 would remove from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) the authority to arbitrarily determine which permits issued by other states will be recognized in South Carolina. Instead, H 3212 would mandate that ALL VALID OUT-OF-STATE RTC PERMITS be recognized in South Carolina. This legislation will not only greatly increase the number of permits issued by other states that will be honored in South Carolina, but will also increase the number of states that will recognize a South Carolina permit.

Please contact your State Representative at (803) 734-2402 and urge him or her to cosponsor this critical legislation. You may also want to take a moment to thank Representative Delleney for his efforts to promote our Right to Keep and Bear Arms and our right to personal protection.

KEYWORDS: 2ndamendment; banglist; righttocarry; rkba
South Carolina only recoginizes CCW Permits from these states:
1. Alaska
2. Arkansas
3. Louisiana
4. Michigan
5. Missouri
6. North Carolina
7. Ohio
8. Tennessee
9. Texas
10.Wyoming

If you are a permit holder from a state that South Carolina doesn't currently recognize, this bill would solve that issue. If you have reason to travel to SC and you wish to continue carrying concealed there, it would be a good idea to contact the SC Legislators and let them know you'd be much more likely to visit their state if this bill passes.

All the contact information for the members of the South Carolina General Assembly can be found at:

Best wishes but SLED is very powerful politically which is bad for a law enforcement agency. They should be politically neutered.

Well, if this passes there'll be no place in the southeast that I cannot carry. Please forgive me if I don't hold my breath.

The NRA took down their reciprocity map, what is the best, updated, one page source for keeping up with reciprocity?

I am almost certain SC recognizes GA's CC permit. Are you certain about that list?

SC most definately does NOT recognize Georgia's Firearms Permit (CCW).

It has to do with Ga not requiring the same level of training as does SC before issuance of license.

Thanks. What nonsense. GA doesn't honor SC's either. I guess I'll have to be careful when traveling there.

If I recall, Jake Knotts sidetracked this legislation the last time because he provides CCW permit training and this would have diminished his role. Anyone else remember that?

I have a question that is a little bit off topic, but I read somewhere that the state legislature passed a "Stand Your Ground" bill like Florida's. It had gone to Gov. Sanford's office for him to sign. I haven't heard any thing else about this bill.

Anyone have more info?

Yes he did. In June 2006 Gov. Sanford signed the "Castle Doctrine" self-defense bill and the "Emergency Powers Protection" bill that prevents local governments from confiscating firearms during a state of emergency.

Thanks for the link.

It looks like the "Castle Doctrine" bill is not as strong as Florida's "Stand Your Ground" bill. It sounds like it prevents lawsuits against you if you shoot someone when you are not in a "duty to retreat" situation. We already do not have a "duty to retreat" in a home, an occupied car, or business, etc. But, every little bit helps.
