South Carolina: Open Carry Bill Committee Hearing Moved to Next Week

Gun Rights

On March 2nd, the House Judiciary Committee will hear House Bill 3094, to legalize the open carry of handguns. It is being rescheduled from the February 23rd hearing. Previously, on February 10th, the General Laws Subcommittee issued a favorable report to HB 3094 and advanced it to the full committee.

House Bill 3094 allows citizens who hold a concealed weapons permit to carry a handgun in the manner they choose. Currently, South Carolina is one of just five states that do not explicitly allow open carry, among them Illinois, New York, and California. Self-defense situations are difficult to predict and everyone has different circumstances. It is unreasonable for the law to impose a one-size-fits-all method of carrying a handgun for self-defense.
