SC House getting concealed weapons bill
Posted 12-9-08 12:42PM
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina House member is filing a
bill to allow residents to carry weapons without a permit.
Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dan Cooper of Piedmont said
Tuesday he has filed legislation to allow any law-abiding citizen
to carry a weapon.
The Republican says concealed weapons permit laws and other
restrictions make it less likely people who obey the law will be
armed and does nothing to disarm people willing to break the law.
Tuesday is the first day House members can file new bills for
the legislative session that starts Jan. 13.
