SECOND AMENDMENT WIN: Open Carry Is Coming To South Carolina

Democrats and the media are still trying to push for more gun control, but in some parts of the country there is a push in the opposite direction.

Because of a new law in South Carolina, permit holders will soon be allowed to carry openly.

This is a huge Second Amendment victory.

Gov. Henry McMaster held a ceremonial signing Friday for a new state law allowing people to carry pistols in the open.

The law still requires a permit obtained in a training class to carry a pistol in public, but it eliminates the need to keep a holster hidden under a pant leg or jacket.

The legislation passed this spring also eliminates a $50 permit fee to get a concealed weapons permit and lowers the number of bullets that someone must fire at a target in an accuracy test to get a permit from 50 to 25 shots.

Requirements remain that a permit holder be 21 or over, take eight hours of training and pass a background check that includes fingerprinting.

“This is a good day for South Carolina. It is a happy day for law-abiding citizens,” McMaster said at the Palmetto State Armory in Greenville, joined by Second Amendment advocates.

This is excellent news.

This is a Constitutional right.
