South Carolina House Passes Constitutional Carry

Towards the end of February, the South Carolina House passed a Constitutional Carry bill by a margin of 90 to 30.  Constitutional Carry is the simple concept that a lawful individual can carry a handgun without having to beg the government for permission.

The bill is currently in the Senate. South Carolina’s Constitutional Carry bill is H 3594 and is the latest legislative effort to pass said legislation in the South Carolina General Assembly in the last few years. 

For example, In 2021, the State House passed Constitutional Carry, but the Senate did not pass the bill. Dean Weingarten of AmmoLand believes that “a Senator in a leadership position” likely killed the bill. 

The South Carolina Senate is dominated by Republicans (30-16), so there’s a strong possibility of it finally being passed this time around. 

Florida just passed permittless carry, which made it the 26th state in the nation to pass such legislation. 

Should South Carolina pass this legislation, it will become the 27th state to make Constitutional Carry law of the land. At the rate things are going, all red states will have Constitutional Carry by the end of the 2020s.

Without a doubt, Constitutional Carry is the most successful legislative project that the Right has promoted in the last 30 years. Hopefully, other elements on the Right catch on to this and use Constitutional Carry’s successful model for other legislative fights.
