SC Carry President Sherra Scott and Board Member Randy Jones attended the ceremonial signing of H3094, the Open Carry with Training Act, at Palmetto State Armory in Greenville Friday, August 13, 2021. The open carry portion of the bill goes into effect Sunday, August 15th. In addition to Governor McMaster, several other elected officials were in attendance, including Lt. Governor Pamela Evette, Speaker Jay Lucas, the sponsor of the bill Rep. Bobby Cox, as well as Representatives Caskey, Forrest, Nutt, and other's I probably missed, and Greenville County Sheriff Lewis.
While we would have preferred the Constitutional Carry bill be passed, the Open Carry bill is a big step for South Carolina. Now is not the time to rest on our laurels. Keep the pressure on your elected representatives, particularly the state senators, to let them know you support Constitutional Carry!
