concealed carry

mrseatlemrseatle Member Posts: 15,467 ✭✭✭
I live in SC and can purchase 1 hand gun per month ( should have a Handgun of the Month Club) but what is it with reciprocity in adjoining states?I have looked at listings and it is great that Idaho recognizes my right to carry but what about Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia or even Florida.Where can I find UTD info. It does not seem worth the effort to be legal to carry in SC if you have to hang it up in adjoining states.Any info supplied will be appreciated.

    Having retired from a career which mandated I carry a weapon I have on numerous occasions been asked about whether to carry or not. I don't have a canned answer. Each person is different and so my advise varies. To the normal person....always a guy, never asked by a girl, I say go on ahead. If the fear of being a victim outweighs the fear of having violated some staute and getting caught...then arm yourself...discreetly. When was the last time you were tossed on the wall and patted down? NEVER? Then the chances are you are the type who will never be. Therefore make a wise choice of weapon, get qualified to some degree and protect yourself and others you love..or like alot. One needs to be able to control the round that leaves the barrel and place it where it needs to go to eliminate whatever threat is presenting itself. There probably won't be a cop with you when all hell turns loose. Don't pull it ever unless you really need it and no one will know you have it. On the other hand, pulling a weapon to warn another you are armed will get you 3 hots and a cot.

    When you pay for your right to carry, you put money into the coffers of those who intend to take your right away.

    but don't worry the wealthy and powerful will always have weapons to lord over their slaves, even in england wealthy landowners get to go fox hunting w/ fancy shotguns and then theirs always the zafari.

    I'd suggest that staying on the good side of most laws is more conductive to permitting you to being able to make improvments in the bad laws rather than watch grass grow as a guest in a taxpayer funded prison cell.
    So are you active in trying to make changes or just a background noise maker?
    Remember it has been said by men much smarter than I, you are either part of the cure or part of the problem.

    There is a VAST difference between obeying laws blindly...and obeying laws KNOWING that they are UnConstitutional.

    Your precious NRA promotes laws...completely unaware that the laws they promote are NOT CONSTITUTIONAL...

    You may not like it, feller...but the poster above(MrSeatle) spoke the absolute truth.Choke on it.

    I'd love to agree with him, but I live in what I will call the real world. I am not a lawyer, not pretend to be. I had enough Government exposure in the military to understand you may have a chance working the system and you'll have NONE if you are a casualty of it.

    Like the free market, something is only as worth as much as someone is willing to pay. Something is unconsitutional only if some court will agree with you. Sorry as it may be, our Governments (all levels) have GROSSLY outgrown what they are really allowed to do but the population likes its national parks, and social security pozi scheme, and its government discrimation programs. Or at least they won't actively fight the grow of Government; oh many will set home and complain.......

    Setting with you tail in jail is not likely to win or impress many friends. I kinda like being able to fondle the irons I have selected to be acquired, don't expect I'd like being held back by state provided irons.

    I did not see anything about the NRA in this thread, but you will NEVER hear me say they are perfect (or ANY organization, 2A or otherwise). But their 4 million members have more leverage than the left likes. They are also NOT the only organization I support as I do prefer a more hard line position. Perhaps you have a better means of getting the other 65+ million gun owners active?

    While I'll deny virtually anything I'm accused of, it is possible I have "stretched" a law or two in my life. You make your choices and take your chances.

    Once again..I will patiently try to explain.

    We must obey the least up till they ban firearms.

    Knowing that a law is Unconstitutional..and sorry, it dosn't take a Court to declare it one way or the the first step to freedom. Not being smart enough to know the difference is a victory for fedgov propaganda camps...

    Civil disobedience is on the rise. Even people who are not gun owners can begin to bring out the beast in gov't. All it takes is for people to begin rescinding their approval in gov't affairs.

    This sometimes also brings on a murderous regime, when it decides to throw a temper tantrum because its subjects are not cooperating. Be aware of that....

    [1] _Marbury vs Madison_ "All laws which are repugnant to the
    Constitution are null and void."

    16th American Jurisprudence 2d, Section 177 late 2nd, section
    256: "No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no
    courts are bound to enforce it. The general rule is that an
    unconstitutional statute, though having the form and the name
    of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and
    ineffective for any purpose, since unconstitutionality dates
    from the time of its enactment, and not merely from the date of
    the decision so branding it."

    "The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible to live without breaking laws."
    --Ayn Rand

    A well armed society is the best form of homeland security.

    Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

    A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.
    Make yourselves sheep, and the wolves will eat you.

    Beginning to post here+ is doing something about it. However my main concern is not my selfish ability to enjoy these rights, half of the world population makes less than $400 dollars a year living in slavery. Too many Americans want to build walls and hide in their homes, waiting for the inevitable. Go ahead and spend your $400 for some worthless paperwork. I serve this nation (USA) and took an oath to serve God and Country over 13 years ago (RA).

    hungry wolves are turning on each other every day!
    I love this national park, see story below.

    ...pickenup, +1

    ...I too believe that the Constitution gives me the right to carry, without a permit...but too many others do not see it that way.
    What, 3-4 states now are the only ones that do not have right to carry laws? I for one was very glad permits become available, as now I do not face the problems that arise from illegal carry.

    ...I suspose if the right to carry laws were revoked, you, mrseattle,...will be at the forefront bit*hin about the loss, correct?...[;)]

    Well now that I know it's a competition....

    I'm a Texan too, and since they updated the definition of "traveling" I haven't had much worry's. Also Gated Community, Gated work etc. etc. Besides All you have to do is read the Bible to figure out how this is all gonna play out. The publicans can have their codes and the tax man can have his dues, they have already earned their reward.

    Kinda hard to conceal this 04 gauge Arquebus anyway![8D]

    Mr Seattle,
    I do not think, because I enjoy life in the US, that I have an obligation to support any or all fo the rest of the world.

    I daily thank God that I live in the USA and not in Mexico or Vietnam or .....

    If you would support the less fortunate in the world, then do it with your money, not mine.

    Thanks you and best regards,
