S.C. Gov. McMaster Spurns Factless Opposition, Pledges To Sign “Permitless” Carry

posted on April 20, 2017

Opposing legislation under consideration that would allow South Carolina citizens to carry a firearm without a permit from the state, Greenville Police Chief Ken Miller claimed, “It would create opportunities for additional violence to occur.” 

“So now everybody is authorized to carry a gun, and guns tend to draw out other guns,” Miller continued. “It will create opportunities for police shootings or for police officers or deputies to get hurt more.” 

Where is your evidence of that, Chief? This has not been the case in any other state that has removed the requirement for government permission to exercise a constitutional right—just as permitted carry did not endanger cops or cause crime waves.

Fortunately, S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster doesn’t subscribe to Miller’s anti-gun fantasies. “Gov. McMaster appreciates the House’s hard work on this bill, believes it is constitutional, and will sign it if it reaches his desk,” said spokesman Brian Symmes.
