U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Last week, House Bill 3094, the open carry bill, received a favorable report from the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee and the Senate then pulled it to the floor. Now, there’s a chance to add a constitutional carry amendment to it. Please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT a constitutional carry amendment to H. 3094.

CLICK HERE TAKE ACTION!

Constitutional carry allows a law-abiding adult to carry a handgun without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have the right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. Additionally, it maintains the existing Concealed Weapon Permit (CWP) system, so citizens who still wish to obtain a permit may do so. Currently, 20 other states have constitutional/permitless carry.

At the moment, South Carolina is just like New York and California in not allowing open carry of handguns. Self-defense situations are difficult to predict and everyone has different circumstances. It is unreasonable for the law to impose a one-size-fits-all method of carrying a handgun for self-defense. The constitutional carry amendment will not prevent H. 3094 from legalizing open carry and allowing law-abiding citizens to carry in the manner they choose.

Again, please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT a constitutional carry amendment to H. 3094.

FAILED. Meanwhile in South Carolina, 5 Republicans joined with the Democrats in rejecting an amendment for Constitutional Carry to the Open Carry with Training Act. (The Senate is 30-R, 16-D) The CC Act is also a separate Bill which is not likely to pass. H. 3096 From USNews: “senators debating a bill that would allow people with concealed weapons permits to carry their guns on Wednesday rejected an attempt to get rid of the requirement for the permits. Senators voted 25-21 against the so-called constitutional carry amendment after several hours of debate on Wednesday.” The Open Carry With Training Act… Read more »

Had it not been for one of the NRA’s ‘A+ Rating’ Senators (Sen. Katrina Shealy), we would most likely would have Constitutional Carry years ago, but she sided with ‘Mothers for Action’ and tabled the legislation during the end of the legislative session for that year! Now we have some so-called Republican Senators that are using the old ‘double-speak’ and political maneuvering to avoid passing it this term, my senator being one of them! I had an email exchange with him laying out my position and received his ‘double-speak’ reply. Here it is with my reply to him: “Senator Massey,… Read more »

Females are the absolute worst Legislators we have in SC, and believe me the males are nothing but a bunch of scumbuckets for the most part. A friend who is in her district got this line of bull$#it from Penry Gustafson, yesterday. They actually think we are so damn stupid that we will believe this stuff! “Good afternoon! Thank you for taking the time to reach out to me, as you are a concerned citizen. I always appreciate input. As a state legislator, I am most concerned with our STATE’S RIGHTS and individual freedoms. Our state has a historical precedent… Read more »

It’s time to walk away from the GOP. We are working on it in Maine.

Problematically, if you walk away from the GOP… who do you walk TO?? (Is there a ‘better’ option? I don’t see one.)

Well, the “Republicans” in the SC Senate sold us out on Constitutional Carry, today. We still have a chance of getting open carry with a permit. Better than nothing but not what it should have been. I want to see a list of who voted and how on this issue.

A friend said his Senator is shooting him a lot of bs and said she signed on as a sponsor to “Amendment 1a”. Anyone know what 1a is?
