NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Lawmakers in South Carolina are giving the public a chance to weigh in on when and where carrying a concealed weapon should be allowed.

Earlier this month, a Senate panel approved the bill that would allow guns in bars and restaurants. If passed, concealed weapon permit holders could bring a gun into establishments that serve alcohol as long as they're not drinking. It also has to be OK with the business owner.

Public hearings are being held across the state, and there is one Monday night in North Charleston.  If you would like to have your say, you can attend tonight's meeting at North Charleston City Hall.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. and runs till 9 p.m.
