S.C. Governor: Celebrating Gun-Rights Bill Twice

posted on August 26, 2016

On Wednesday, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley was joined by state lawmakers from South Carolina and Georgia as she ceremonially re-signed H. 3799, legislation that adds Georgia to the list of states where Right-to-Carry permits are recognized. Originally passed by the South Carolina delegation and signed into law in June, Haley wanted to celebrate the gun-rights victory by signing it again in North Augusta, just across the river from Georgia.

Haley also discussed why it’s so important to allow law-abiding gun owners to move freely between states, and expressed her hope that the new reciprocity would bring more Georgia residents to South Carolina. “No one wants to break the law,” the governor said. “So if they’ve gotten their CWP in Georgia, we want them to be able to go to the beach in South Carolina and take [their gun] and not worry about anything happening.”
