Sad, we should be going in the opposite direction restricting access to guns, instead of making them more available.

To add, within a year there will be some shooting from someone having a gun at a bar, and the blood will not only be on the killers hands, but on the legislators that passed this stupid law along with the governor as well.

The sort of idjit law I would expect from SC. As much as they blather about liberty – apparently they don’t include a provision for business owners to ban weapons on their own. An option many comparably silly states thought to include.

Or did Reuters not think to ask the question?

Cool, now they can have shootouts in restaurants. Real progress. And once again the only ones who benefit are the gun manufactures (and, of course, the legislators they hire to pass these laws.) Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

Eideard, did you read the article???? Quote: “They said they planned to post signs barring patrons from bringing guns inside their businesses.” Reuters asked the question. They answered it.

Restaurant and bar owners will be able to post signs banning weapons. It is in the article. This is a terrible law and I cannot believe anyone thinks it is a good idea. There is no end to catering to the gun lobby.

We hope this will not be approved. It is irresponsible to allow fire arms in public places where alcohol is served. Doesn’t the killing in Florida demonstrate how fire arms destroy families when used by untrained people (a retired police officer is an UNTRAINED person).

Too sad!

Like restrictions on guns for law abiding citizens will make the public safer. Law abiding citizens are safer when they can protect theirself from the criminals. Criminals do not follow the law and will therefore have their gun either way, lawful or not. What makes anyone think they can put a ban in place that will force criminals and idots to be law abiding. Use common sense.
