Some SC Businesses Consider Banning Guns On Premises
South Carolina recently passed an open carry law. While I’m not personally a fan of open carry, I’ll vehemently defend the right for people to carry in such a manner. That’s kind of how rights work, especially when it comes to our gun rights.
I’m glad they passed the law so that people are free to carry a firearm in the manner which they prefer. It’s a step forward for Second Amendment rights in the state, and that’s a good thing.
However, it seems that not everyone agrees.
Which, of course, has never actually happened so far as I can find. Since anti-Second Amendment folks would be sharing those stories every time an open carry bill came up, I can safely assume that the reason I can’t find such a case is that it never happened.
Just because you think it could happen doesn’t mean it will. Especially since South Carolina already has concealed carry and has for ages.
Anyway, moving on…
Well, let’s talk about this for a moment.
I don’t support the idea of businesses banning guns on their property. However, I do support their right to do so. It’s their property, they get to say what happens with that property. Just like I don’t have to put up with someone insulting my wife while standing in my living room regardless of their First Amendment rights, I shouldn’t have to accept someone carrying a gun on my property either.
That said, you have a right to not spend money with these businesses because of that stance. If you’re a regular customer, let them know you’re done because they say you’re not welcome unless you disarm yourself and make yourself easy prey for the criminals. Let them know you’ll be advising others to seek out their competitors as well.
There’s nothing that says you have to do business with anyone in particular, so don’t. Spend your money with someone who values your Second Amendment rights as much as their own. If there isn’t anyone, then maybe you’ve just found yourself a business opportunity.
Make a decision like this hurt. Make it hurt bad.
Then we can see how many think it was such a wise decision to treat a percentage of their customer base as if they’re all homicidal maniacs.
