    I just drafted an email with a link to the petition and sent it to everyone I know. If everyone does this we should be able to reach a large number of people quickly!

    Yea - word of mouth abd b,ogs first - get up to a reasonable number - then go for press coverage. What group in SC is going to champion this? or will independent activists from OCDO have to do it?

    I'd send an email to Grassroots South Carolina and GOSC and see if they can post a link to it, and even send a link to it in their newsletters.

    Have you not noticed that no one posts here as an officer/principal of either organization? Care to speculate on why?

    You are right, User 589 has posted five times and once included GRSC XO's e-mail address.

    Was that the point that you wanted to address?

    I'll add RMGO and WGO to the list of GRSC and GOSC whose officers/principals have not posted as such here. Will you paint them damned with one broad brush without considering the source of their reticence? RMGO, WGO and GRSC are unaffiliated and GOSC is affiliated with the NRA. That seems quite disparate to result in similar reticence. Consider WCCA's participation here in the same light.

    Apropos 'RMGO,' they host 'The Real Nature of Politics' that touches on petitions and the politics of access.

    Good luck with this. I hope that you get it passed. I am not a citizen of SC but I am behind you in your fight for your rights.

    As the originator fo the petition I may be the most likely person to answer the question.

    To make a long story short, getting people involved is like pulling teeth. E-mails have been sent, gun shops notified and flyered, business cards and flyers passed out at gun shows, online forums postedand SC Grass Roots Gun Rights informed/included.

    Because I normally work about 60 to70 hours per week I really don't have time to push it as hard as I'd like. I was hoping that somewhere along the line it'd take on a life of it's own. Hasn't happened.

    It's more than a little disappointing that a petiton started a day afterSouth Carolina's (Oklahoma's) has 2.5 times as many signatures, although I'm happy for them. For whatever reason, a lot of gun owners here think open carry isn't a good idea... Even some who represent gun rights groups. So it is what it is, and I'm honestly not sure which way to go with it or how much energy to invest in it. Ideas are always welcome.



    P.S. The only subject that gets more rolled eyes around here than open carry is when I mention Saturday Night Special/melting point laws. Apparently low incomecitizens don't have the same right to self protection as those who can afford a $500 gun. And I was also told that by a gun rights association rep.

    That's exactly right, that's why I will never get a CWP or register any firearm.

    I Will be writing letters tothe Governor and my state representatives. I will also ask my local gun shops if they will let me post fliers. We need this in SC, gang violence is on the rise. It's time for honest folks to be ableto defend themselves without a permit fromtheir county sheriff.
