The most surprising disappointment, however, was Senator Shane Massey of Edgefield. “I think training and background checks are important,” said Senate Majority Leader Shane Massey, a Republican from Edgefield.

Massey voted to kill the measure as well.

The measure failed 25 to 21, even though Republicans have a super majority in the S.C. Senate.  The political make up of the current S.C. Senate is 30 Republicans and 16 Democrats.

Opponents of the open carry bill also include a number of current law enforcement leaders, including State Law Enforcement Division Chief Mark Keel, and the police chiefs and sheriffs in some of the state’s largest population centers.

The Measure Was To Table The Bill. An AYE VOTE Is A Vote To Kill The Bill.
