South Carolina State Representatives voted constitutional carry out of subcommittee yesterday, March 16th. The bill is expected to be taken up on the floor of the full House in April.

Should the bill pass, as it is expected to, it will then be sent to the South Carolina Senate.

A weaker, watered down version of the bill will be debated on the house floor today.

The South Carolina Senate can now decide which of the two bills it chooses to pass. One of the two will fail in the S.C. Senate.

Constitutional Carry is by definition the ability to carry a firearm without a restriction in place by the Government. In a Constitutional Carry State, there is no licensing or training required to legally carry a firearm. Some states with unlicensed carry have implemented certain policies that restrict the method of carry or who can carry.

Writes Relentless Tactical:

Isn’t it Dangerous?

It may seem somewhat odd that there is no government required training to carry a weapon, and I can understand why some will see this as dangerous. However, in the States that have adopted Constitutional carry, there hasn’t been an increase in violence or firearms accidents. Vermont is one of the safest states in the Union. There are a few reasons to this.

First off people are still seeking training to know how to use a firearm in Constitutional Carry states. There are more firearms training schools now than ever. I’m a certified instructor in my home state and I am a proponent for unrestricted carry. I know, even if it’s not required, people will still come to me for training. Serious concealed carriers with either seek training out or train themselves. Guns aren’t so complicated that a person couldn’t learn to carry successfully by themselves.

People who carry every day take responsibility for themselves and are likely responsible people. It takes real dedication to carry every single day. Those who don’t take their responsibility to defend themselves seriously are unlikely to carry a firearm, even infrequently.
