View Amendment Current Amendment: 14 to Bill 3594

Senator McLeod proposes the following amendment (SMIN-3594.MW0135S):

Amend the bill, as and if amended, SECTION 19, by striking Section 23-31-245 and inserting:

 Section 23-31-245. This Article does not prevent a law enforcement officer from searching, detaining or arresting a person when he has a particularized and objective basis for suspecting the particular person stopped of criminal activity. A person merely carrying a weapon in accordance with this article is not sufficient to justify a search, detention or arrest. In enforcing the provisions contained in this article, an officer may not consider, race, color, or national origin except to the extent permitted by the United States and South Carolina Constitution.
