South Carolina Is Officially The 29th Constitutional Carry State


South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster has signed a new law allowing adults 18 and over to carry loaded handguns without a permit or training. This law, which positions South Carolina as the 29th state to adopt permitless carry, aims to expand Second Amendment rights for law-abiding citizens while imposing stricter penalties for illegal gun use and possession, particularly among convicted felons.

The law maintains existing restrictions on carrying firearms in certain areas such as schools, courthouses, and State House grounds. Enhanced enforcement measures, including additional signage, are being implemented in these areas to inform the public.

The law’s passage followed a compromise between the South Carolina Senate and House, fulfilling a request by Governor McMaster for tougher penalties on illegal firearm carriers.
