    And the Florida link.

    I would assume that it is official without a formal presser and announcement. :celebrate

    This is what I received from Florida's DoACS Division of Licensing immediately after the agreement was reached. I'm impressed with their responsiveness and interest in expanding reciprocity.

    Good afternoon, Mr. Morris:

    I just wanted you to know that effective today Florida and South Carolina are reciprocal states. SLED has already posted Florida to its website (http://www.sled.sc.gov/Reciprocity1.aspx?MenuID=CWP). We will be posting South Carolina to our website within the next half hour.

    Have a pleasant weekend.
    Previous correspondence with the Division of Licensing:

    and

    I'm also glad that South Carolina's recently passed legislation is making the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division get in line with the rest of the country. The legislation isn't perfect, but it is clear that SLED can't block all reciprocity requests anymore.

    340mopar: And I will! Before I just tucked my gun into the glove box before I crossed the border, and kept driving until I hit North Carolina. I have to actually research SC concealed carry law now... where I'm allowed to go, etc.

    Pretty much the standard places. One thing to note is that in SC the signs, if proper, carry the full weight of the law. None of this they have to ask you to leave stuff.

    Since the answer is no, it would be a great time to sue them under Artticle IV's privileges and Immunities clause. A Section 1983 action ought to be able to get a decision for less than $50,000.
