    Sean Bennett didn’t want to hear your voice before the vote. He knew better than me I guess. He didn’t follow his constituents but voted his own way.

    I have to deal with them for the next three years before their re-election.

    Unfortunately, I think they will delay a vote until right in front of their next election in 2024. We need 5 to switch.
    I can understand you not wanting to be the liaison, but why not talk to them to get answers for yourself so you have a better idea of how to navigate the situation the next time this comes up?

    The House always point fingers at the Senate. If they passed CC and tabled the token bill the pressure would have been too much for the Senate. It is political gamesmanship. As a lobbyist once told me in SC Bills are passed before introduced. The I am fighting for you but the Senate/House is old news.

    Rule number 51.

    The house runs every two years which means constantly.

    The senate seats are all elected every four years. They are more reactive in the fourth year of a term.


    While constitutional Carry means a lot to this group it actually does not poll that well among republican general election voters. It polls better with primary republican voters.

    If you actually add in the democrats it polls terribly.


    If you are going to contact legislators you should be in their district if you expect to make an impression. Ask them if they voted against the CC amendment because they did not want to ruin the open carry or if they do not support CC.

    Question - I glanced through fairly quickly on this thread. My CWP is up for renewal at the the present time. Do I need to complete the renewal form and send $50?

    The new law begins in 90 days. You may have a lapse if it expires.

    Default Open carry will become law.

    Polls is not what a Republic is about. A Republic protects rights over the majority. Polls are for a Democracy. The goal in Columbia and DC is self preservation. What is popular should come after the Constitution.

    By not having a current CWP, you will not be able to carry concealed in other states. You will also be subjected to a back ground check if you buy a firearm from a dealer or transfer one through a dealer.

    Are saying a CWP is positive and not an infringement on the 2nd?

    You damn right it is an infringement

    Contrary to popular belief a CWP has nothing to do with law abiding citizens.

    You are correct, sir.

    What DT is telling us if more gun laws begin to poll well SC legislators will put seat before liberty.

    Politics 101: Get re-elected.

    Gun rights groups used that to their advantage. You used threats of having an opponent in the primary to your advantage to advance the CC cause even though it was not polling well with general election republican voters.

    We CC supporters are in a minority position but hold the high ground. Our laws require permission but the US Constitution does not.


    Bigtimber, stop attacking supporters. That strategy will work against you like the teacher unions have ultimately cost education. You know the strategy and who deserves the pressure. Let's finish this.




    I made sure republican house members knew CC polled much better with primary republican voters. Gun rights supporters applied the leverage.


    Now you have your list of senators narrowed down to 9. Unfortunately it is not an election year.

    CC isn't going away. We have enough conservative legislators to keep it on the table. Thank you for raising your had against the caucus but so did Bobby Cox and folded like you did in the end. Open Carry is a token bill for NRA rating. The in state groups know better. I don't care my reps re-election I care about liberty. Most of decaders are RINOs but became well. I don't think we need term limits just less apathy. Covid restrictions helped work against this bill. Pressure will keep building.

    Everyone that voted against the amendment is not a fan liberty. The goal of serving should not be becoming the next Leatherman and Florence Concrete. The peanut salary eventually pays big.

    That is the problem.

    18 states allow permitless carry. They are probably better on taxes too

    It will be people like you who turn off legislators.

    Looks like you didn't do your job.

    Politicians and diapers should be changed often, and for the same reason.
