Houston, Texas – -(AmmoLand.com)- U.S. LawShield, industry leader and America’s largest provider of Legal Defense for Self-Defense coverage, assists South Carolina gun owners by offering multiple “Must-Know Law for Gun Owners 101” workshops across the state in July, August, and September of 2021. Presented by U.S. LawShield’s Independent Program Attorneys, the sessions cover the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division’s new “Open Carry with Training” legislation requirements. The new law, which takes effect August 16, 2021, allows South Carolinians with training and concealed weapons permits to carry their firearms openly.

“Gun owners are eager to satisfy the new stipulations for open carry in South Carolina,” said U.S. LawShield CEO P.J. Hermosa, “and we stand at the ready to help them exercise their Second Amendment rights according to the conditions of the recently passed legislation. Our classes answer all their legal questions, including reciprocity and more.

“Everyone is welcome to attend these educational sessions, regardless of membership in U.S. LawShield,” said Hermosa. “Our commitment extends beyond protecting our members when they need it to our broader mission of arming and educating firearms owners across the country with the information they need to keep up with new legislation,” he added. The events are led by U.S. LawShield Independent Program Attorneys, firearms instructors, members of law enforcement, and experienced professionals in all areas of self-defense.

“Must-Know Law for Gun Owners 101”

U.S. LawShield Independent Program Attorneys Scott Joye and Dan Farnsworth will walk attendees of “Must-Know Law for Gun Owners 101” through the particulars required for gun owners in South Carolina to open carry. “These workshops arm folks with the vital knowledge they need to keep them safe and on the right side of the law,” said Hermosa. “And every session features a dedicated question and answer session ensuring people leave with the knowledge and confidence they need to understand the law and how to defend themselves legally.”

Topics include:

  • Legalities of the Castle Doctrine
  • When the use of deadly force is legally justified
  • Where one can legally carry
  • What to expect when law enforcement arrives

As an added value, each attendee receives a free copy of the U.S. LawShield publication When Can I Legally Shoot? The Law of Deadly Force, valued at $19.95. “This useful booklet explains the law of deadly force in South Carolina in easy-to-understand language and helps gun owners understand when they’re legally allowed to pull the trigger,” Hermosa said.

Now we are at the point where Texas was last year. Conceal permit to open carry. Now Texas has no permit to open carry, North Carolina has no permit to open carry, many other States have no permit to open carry, while some still require a permit to conceal carry and others do not, known as Constitutional Carry.
