    Sen. Jackson To Introduce Bill On Permitted Handguns In Places That Sell Alcohol
    posted January 8, 2008

    State Sen. Doug Jackson, D-Dickson, said he will introduce a bill today to allow persons with handgun carry permits to carry their weapons into establishments that sell alcohol and a bill requiring local governments to be responsible for all actual medical costs of any judgment or award against them.

    SB0023 allows anyone who "has a permit to carry a handgun to carry (it) in places where alcohol is served for consumption on premises," as long as the person is not consuming alcohol and as long as the owners of the premises have not banned weapons from the premises and posted proper notification of the ban.

    You shouldn't hotlink poll links. Many polls will edit out votes if they alot came from the same referrer.

    This is awesome. Finally, some real justice for us law-abiding citizens. One more gun free zone possibly gone and hopefully at least one more life saved.

    I feel Mr. Jackson deserves another term next election day.

    We need more people like him in SC (The STATE of CONFUSION)
