SC 2A friendly lawyers

Does anyone have a list of second amendment friendly lawyers? If not, perhaps this would be a good spot to list the contact info of any you might know.

See if the USC Law School has a Military Students Organization (or something similar). There were quite a few of us at CSOL in ours, and we were all pro-2A. In fact we did shooting events and evidence weapon safety seminars as a Student Org representing the school.

If a lawyer should read this, I have a question:

If a business prevents me from carrying a personal defense weapon, is not that business required to take steps to then enure my protection since they have removed that right from me?

I do not refer to a store that I want to shop at, I also refer to a business where I may work at. If an employee or robber comes into the location and I am threatened or injured, I feel I should have some recourse as I have had my ability to defend myself removed due to their policy and they took no steps to ensure my defense at their business (no armed guard).

Some may argue that I "Chose" to shop at a particular establishment, and in many cases this would be true. But what If I were at the DMV, or paying a bill in person, or at work. I have to be there, its not a choice anymore.

IANAL but there is typically no liability incurred incurred by posting a place as a victim disarmament zone. I suppose a case could be made in the event of gross negligence, but I suspect it would be difficult to argue such a case.

Some states (at least Wisconsin) have created a specific provision that exempts employers from liability for allowing people to carry if accidents occur, but that law is silent on the issue of liability if carry is prohibited. Still, even the promise of immunity from a wide array of contingencies for allowing carry is a fairly powerful motivator. Additionally, if a place in Wisconsin posts and takes no steps to enforce the sign, some employers/churches have been concerned that it could be argued that they were negligent as they perceived a hazard (concealed weapons) yet took no actual tangible security steps to mitigate the hazard beyond posting a sign (guards, patdowns, metal detectors, etc). It would be a good modification to many state's CCW laws.

Aren't you in the Upstate, Canuck? Bigfutz mentioned Bannister&Wyatt. I don't know Wyatt but Bill Bannister should be good. James Anderson of Anderson/Oyer did my NFA trust (succesful with the BATFE 4x times) and he's very pro 2A.

I realize this is an old thread so I sent you an email just in case you don't come across my post.

Could you clarify the law regarding concealed carry in a private daycare? I work in a private daycare and the owner of the daycare wants to get her CWP and be able to carry. She also would like for other teachers that already have a CWP to be able to carry. Is it legal for her employees to carry with written permission from the owner? There are 10 teachers and three of us already have a SC CWP.


SECTION 16-23-420. Possession of firearm on school property; concealed weapons.

(A) It is unlawful for a person to possess a firearm of any kind on any premises or property owned, operated, or controlled by a private or public school, college, university, technical college, other post-secondary institution, or in any publicly owned building, without the express permission of the authorities in charge of the premises or property. The provisions of this subsection related to any premises or property owned, operated, or controlled by a private or public school, college, university, technical college, or other post-secondary institution, do not apply to a person who is authorized to carry a concealed weapon pursuant to Article 4, Chapter 31, Title 23 when the weapon remains inside an attended or locked motor vehicle and is secured in a closed glove compartment, closed console, closed trunk, or in a closed container secured by an integral fastener and transported in the luggage compartment of the vehicle.
