Ceremonial Signing of H3094 Open Carry Bill

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!

Great day for SC. No fee for permit or renewals. Now go after off limit and restricted areas

I am so glad that we had representation at this event. This will go a long way for us to get name recognition in the state. Way to go Sherra Scott and Randy Jones ! I wish I could have been there.

Bobby Cox gave SC Carry a plug in his speech. Great job Randy Jones for your hard work. No doubt your presence July 22nd made that happen.

As summer rolls into September, I have to wonder, what legislation are we pushing forward in Columbia this Fall? Constitutional Carry is a possibility, but it seems to me we need some quick wins first. Examples would include correcting some of the issues that have arisen as a result of the passage of the open carry with training legislation in the last session, such are restoring the requirement for uniform, standard signage, restoration of the anti-confiscation provisions that were muddied, and at the very least, requiring signage at every entry point to a permitted festival where gun control has been enacted by the municipality, or outright striking of this provision from the law altogether.

What other ideas do you have? We need to be working with the legislators NOW to get these on the docket for the fall session.
