Today, the South Carolina House of Representatives concurred with Senate amendments to Senate Bill 308 by a 90-18 vote.  This important pro-gun legislation makes a number of improvements to the South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP), including removing the prohibition on CWP holders carrying a concealed handgun into an establishment licensed to serve alcohol, extending the duration or length of term of the CWP, improving training standards, improving the application and renewal process, and expanding where a CWP holder may transport a firearm in his or her motor vehicle.  S 308 is now awaiting approval by Governor Nikki Haley.

Your NRA-ILA is working to ensure these and other pro-gun reforms remain a priority for the South Carolina General Assembly this year, and we will continue to keep you updated as this legislative session progresses.
