Things are heating up...for the most part people at the meeting were in support of the bill but some protested with the tired line, "We need to protect the children." Yes, it was actually said.
An Upstate state senator has proposed a bill that would eliminate concealed carry permits and turn South Carolina into an open carry state.
Senate Bill 115 is sponsored by Republican Sen. Lee Bright from Roebuck, who held a hearing in Greenville looking to get public input.
Monday night (3/11/13) a packed council chamber room gave Bright the input he was looking for on a bill to eliminate concealed carry permits and allow people to carry guns in the open, making South Carolina a "constitutional carry" state.
