I haven’t seen something so stupid in a piece of gun legislation in a very long time. I literally jumped off the couch when I read it.
South Carolina S0088 is a bill filed about a week ago in the SC Senate. It’s generally a good bill, except for section C, which is some of the most bass-ackwards, dangerous, stupid stuff I’ve seen in a piece of legislation in some time.
Here’s the link to the entire bill. The craziest part is quoted below:
“(C) If a vehicle owner is a concealed weapons permit holder, the department shall affix a sticker to the vehicle owner’s license plate identifying the vehicle owner as a concealed weapons permit holder. The department shall establish the specifications for the sticker and the method for obtaining information regarding a vehicle owner’s status as a concealed weapons holder.”
Yes, they want to put a special sticker on your license plate that lets the whole world know that you’ve got a concealed firearm. What’s next, mandatory CCW badges?
This, in a state where open carry is illegal…
