      Open Carry petition.

      Would anyone be interested in signing an Open Carry petition for South Carolina?

      Thank you!

      Can't sign it or I would. I'd sign anything to help the cause for any brother in the union cause I know they'd do the same for me. I'll post your link in the South Carolina chapter forum of Dodgetruckworld for you though.

      I see it's already got one sig from that site. It's good to have resources. Good luck with it, I'll continue to hope the best for you there. Be sure to post when it happens.

      The way the petition is written I couldn't open carry, even though I presently carry concealed. As a property owner I got a non-resident CWP. But I still can't buy a gun in SC - at least until I retire and move there permanently. So I think I can't sign.

      I put the link on USACarry South Carolina forum and already have a couple more signatures for you. Hopefully we can get a lot more.

      I am going to give your link to a few gun toting tech heads I know that live in your state. I'll have them talk to others in your state as well

      I totally disagree with the practice of open carry. I do however, support your petition to do it.

      I just signed. I will pass this on to others.
      A bg sees a room full of carrying citizens. Do you think he will try to rob the cashier?

      Thank you for your support. Might I ask you why you do not like the practice of an open carry? I would just like to hear your view... maybe it's something I had not thought of myself. Thanks!

      I simply see nearly all negatives to it. There is the advantage of a quicker draw, and perhaps some deterrent value in showing an armed populace, but on the downside...

      - any malcontent determined to shoot someone will certainly target you first.

      - the "BG", will certainly have his weapon concealed; giving him the advantage, not me. I prefer it the other way around.

      - it's much easier for anyone who has difficulty getting a firearm to grab yours instead.

      - and least importantly, people in general fear guns. I don't need anyone to fear me. Armed or not, I'm the same guy. No one knows I have it, and I don't have to defend my decision to carry it.

      Very interesting points. There were a few I had not thought off. Thanks for your insight.
