I received the following from the NRA-ILA yesterday. I don’t usually pass on legislative stuff from the various Pro-Bill of Rights organizations, but this is so important I’ve decided to make an exception: S.308 is now being heard before the full House.
Links to the language of the bill and legislator contact information are embedded in the body below.
This is the closest we’ve ever come to defeating the prohibition against carry in restaurants, etc. This is the final push. If you believe you have the right to defend yourself and your family in a restaurant, please contact your representative and ask him to vote for S.308.
DON’T TAKE THEIR VOTE FOR GRANTED!
South Carolina: Self-Defense Bill Passes House Committee, Goes to House Floor for Vote
Contact your state Representative in support of Senate Bill 308
Yesterday, a critical self-defense bill, Senate Bill 308, passed in the House Judiciary Committee. S. 308, introduced by state Senator Sean Bennett (R-38), would remove the prohibition on a Concealed Weapon Permit (CWP) holder carrying a concealed firearm into a restaurant licensed to serve alcohol. Under S. 308, a CWP holder would still be prohibited from consuming alcohol while in the restaurant if he or she is carrying a concealed firearm for personal protection.S. 308 is now eligible for consideration on the House floor. With only a couple of weeks left in the 2013 legislative session, it is critical you contact your state Representative NOW and urge him or her to take up this important restaurant carry bill.
