S.C. Governor Throws Support Behind “Permitless” Carry Bill

posted on April 19, 2017

South Carolina legislators promoting a “permitless” carry measure, which has already passed the state House and is awaiting consideration in the Senate, are getting support from high places.

According to a report in the Charlotte Observer, Gov. Henry McMaster has endorsed the legislation, which would make it legal for those who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a government-issued permit. “Gov. McMaster appreciates the House’s hard work on this bill, believes it is constitutional and will sign it if it reaches his desk,” spokesman Brian Symmes told the newspaper.

The state House of Representatives passed the measure earlier this month by a 64-46 vote. There are four weeks remaining in the session for the Senate to take up the bill.
