Today, the House Judiciary Committee issued a favorable report to House Bill 3094, to legalize the open carry of handguns. It will now go to the House floor for further consideration. Please contact your state representative and ask them to SUPPORT HB 3094.
House Bill 3094 allows citizens who hold a concealed weapons permit, to carry a handgun in the manner they choose. Currently, South Carolina is one of just five states that do not explicitly allow open carry, among them Illinois, New York, and California. 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.
Again, please contact your state representative and ask them to SUPPORT HB 3094.
