    House members voted 104 to 0 to allow South Carolinians with concealed weapons permits to stow their guns under their vehicle seats. That's in addition to the other places already allowed by law: a vehicle trunk and glove compartment.

    I'm not sure if this makes me proud or not.

    We'll find out. Tigerfan00 will chime in I'm sure.

    You can't use it if you need it if it's locked up.

    Sure;
    If I don't have a trunk and I want to keep my pistol under the seat in my locked vehicle.

    If I'm giving someone a ride that I am not comfortable having access to or knowing about the pistol.

    Because it's America and restricting personal rights is un American.

    Speaking from the point of view of someone who was almost car-jacked once, I firmly believe that every "responsible" adult should have the right to carry a weapon for the protection of their life, family, and property. I work hard to buy that truck, and I'll be damned if some two-bit punk is gonna take it from me. And let me tell you from experience, once the would-be car-jacker got a look down the barrel of my Glock 27, the first words out of his mouth were "I'm sorry" as he tripped over himself to get away.
    Now as for making it safe to keep a loaded firearm in a vehicle, that's why I installed a Console Vault. I highly recommend it for storing your gps, radio head unit, satellite radio, and (most importantly) your gun if you plan on keeping one in the truck. Keeps your valuables safe in parking lots, compliant with the law, and still readily accessible in an emergency.

    First off, Im going to start by saying sorry for the bad spelling, Im in a bit of a rush. . . I felt the need to say this. .

    I agree completely, and I feel that in some cases it seems that those who are against gun control simply feel the need to fight gun control just to "piss off" or feel some control over those they either do not agree with politcally or culturally. To give an example I had the wonderfull pleasure of meeting a lady the other day at a gas station parking lot while I waiting on my friend to go and get something to eat. The coexist, Change and I love earth bumper stickers sticking crooked on the bumper of her compact Honda pos should have given me a clue. I noticed she kept looking very weird at me sitting there and finally she rolled her passenger side window down and started to shout something so I also rolled down my window. She was from Vermont and I assume because of my Confederate flag decided she would in a very mature intelligent adult like way inform me that "Im f-ing glad I dont live here. Waking up and seeing inbreds everyday with their n*igger hating flags and their gas guzzling trucks would be enough to make me shoot myself." She went on to educate me on how the only purpose for guns should be to shoot inbreds like myself, so I showed her very kindly the finger that she could insert into her nether region and told her if she ever decided to live down here, she would not LIVE very long. My friend came out, I congratulated her on having the mind and logical abilitly of a 4 year old with down syndrome, and off we went.

    To make a long story short, when you put saftey or constiutional politcally correct bull to the side, some people simply know they can help piss off the average white hard working sometimes Southern sympathetic "redneck" male by trying to remove his guns, end of story. Now Im not saying that only those people own guns, what I am saying is I feel we need to look beyond what the saftey saftey saftey tree hugging population of the United States is saying and see exactly what their reasons are for trying to remove fire arms from the United States.

    I just love America. . . .

    Concealed carry and concealing a gun are two different things. :)

    ok...im not going to chime in with my personal opinion on the subject just yet because it needs a LOT of clarification...along with a successful 2/3 majority vote by the SC Senate

    BUT

    heres another article about it
    http://www.wltx.com/news/story.aspx?storyid=87696&catid=2
    both stories imply that you must have a concealed carry permit to legally carry a loaded handgun in the glovebox or closed compartment (i.e. center console) of a vehicle but this is incorrect

    per current SC law:
    if you read the bolded part, there is a DIRECT exception to the unlawful (without permit) carrying of a handgun that involves inside of a motor vehicle.

    before i can "choose sides" so to speak, the media, or lawmakers rather, need to clarify whether or not carrying underneath a vehicle's seat would only allow permit holders to do so or anyone legally allowed to own a firearm.
