NAGR Champions Constitutional Carry in South Carolina
Columbia, SC – Yesterday, State Representative Jonathon Hill filed Constitutional Carry, a bill that would remove the requirement to obtain a government-issued permit in order to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense in South Carolina.
“The National Association for Gun Rights has been working closely with progun State Representative Jonathon Hill on this landmark legislation,” stated NAGR President Dudley Brown. “If passed, South Carolina would be the eleventh state to remove this government mandate once and for all.”
Under current law, concealed carrying a firearm in South Carolina does require a permit, and open carry is illegal. Constitutional Carry would not remove the existing permit process for those who seek reciprocity with neighboring states; however, it would remove the requirement to obtain the permit when carrying openly or concealed in South Carolina.
