SC Governor: The Second Amendment Is Your Concealed Carry Permit


South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster (R) says a House Bill to eliminate a concealed carry permit requirement is “constitutional,” and he “will sign it if it reaches his desk.”

On April 6, Breitbart News reported that the South Carolina House passed permitless carry legislation sponsored by state Rep. Mike Pitts (R-14). That legislation, which would abolish the need for concealed carry permits, is now with the Senate.

Pitts’ bill would recognize South Carolinians’ right to carry a handgun openly or concealed without a permit for self-defense. The Post and Courier quoted Pitts saying, “This bill is a very simple bill. It means, by definition of the Constitution, it gives you the ability to keep and bear arms without having to be permitted by the country.”

Governor McMaster concurs. According to The Charlotte Observer, McMaster’s spokesman, Brian Symmes, said, “Governor McMaster appreciates the House’s hard work on this bill, believes it is constitutional and will sign it if it reaches his desk.”
