South Carolina House To Vote On “Permitless” Carry

posted on April 5, 2017

An NRA-supported “permitless,” or “constitutional,” carry bill has been scheduled for a House floor vote this week. 

H. 3930, introduced by Republican Rep. Mike Pitts, would eliminate the requirement to obtain a concealed-carry permit to legally carry a firearm. In other words, Palmetto State residents would be allowed to exercise their Second Amendment rights without needing permission from the government, and without having to pay a tax that could represent an undue hardship for some.

As in other states, under H. 3930, the current permitting system would be retained in order for South Carolina residents to take advantage of reciprocity agreements with other states. 

According to Myrtle Beach Online, while time is running out, House GOP members have made it a priority to ensure this measure comes to a vote this week. “Second Amendment rights are a cornerstone of the Constitution, and they are extremely important to many in this body,” House Majority Leader Gary Simrill said.
