Being of the country class, we long time country folk have little need to carry out in the country. Though, I am more often in the city to visit friends and family who moved uptown, unlike my country kinfolk who avoid the city where they can.Which amazes me as I believe they have less Yankees there than we do here. And no offense to VA, but it is full of Yankees, and they have better carry laws.
Ah Calhoun St....edge of the hood...used to be anyway. I've been told, by more than a few of my S.O.B[SUP]1[/SUP] relatives that there is a reason Mr. Calhoun faces south...No, certainly in the Tri-county and Columbia, there are so many from-off and Yankees (mostly from Ohio) that the good ol' boys are almost invisible. That's much of why I left Charleston after thirty years, and we lived first on a remote Island behind a gate, and later in a walled compound with a manned gate. It was here, in the walled and guarded condominium's commons (five blocks from Emmanuel AME on Calhoun Street), that I held the Legislative action training seminars for GRGRSC.
The Defender newsletter archives are/were recently still available with the details.
+1 and good find.
Thanks for the link.The Country Class - ... Even when members of the country class happen to be government officials or officers of major corporations, their concerns are essentially private; in their view, government owes to its people equal treatment rather than action to correct what anyone perceives as imbalance or grievance. Hence they tend to oppose special treatment, whether for corporations or for social categories. Rather than gaming government regulations, they try to stay as far from them as possible. Thus the Supreme Court's 2005 decision in Kelo, which allows the private property of some to be taken by others with better connections to government, reminded the country class that government is not its friend.
Just want to add to this... I've been in VA for about 7 years of my adult life. I lived in SC for around 21 years including being raised there, so a part of me will always feel the need to rally the troops in the Palmetto State.A member of OCDO who's location shows them as living in SC and is actively posting in OCDO's SC subform. I'm in CA and ALL of the other posters in this thread do NOT even live in SC (Mike: VA; Nightmare: WI; The Truth: VA; solus: NC; and Walking wolf: NC). Since there's really no active SC members in OCDO's SC subform, posting in it to encourage them to push for OC is pointless and a waste of my ever limited time and effort.
As I wrote to you previously,
Being in CA (aka "The People's Republik of Mexifornia"), I can sympathize....
I noted in another thread that one of the main obstacles to both permitless and open carry, Larry Martin, was voted out. Perhaps this will get things moving on the OC front.On information and belief, there is no open carry advocacy active in South Carolina. All gun advocacy in SC is by affiliates of the national organization that sells privileges for permittees. Reviews the scfirearms.org web site to find the people that will have the current status.
There will never be legal regular open carry in South Carolina until the NRA hegemony is broken.
"The Fudd (named after the cartoon character Elmer Fudd) is the type of person who believes that guns only have a place in a certain role, usually field hunting, and disregard everyone else's rights to own them based upon the founding principles of the Constitution on this bias."Kindly pardon my ignorance: What are FUDDs?
