Yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee voted 16-7-2 to advance Representative Bobby Cox’s House Bill 3594, the constitutional carry bill, to a floor vote. H 3594 recognizes the right of law-abiding adults to carry a firearm for self-defense without having to first pay fees or obtain government permission, while also increasing penalties for criminals caught with firearms. Please use the link below to contact your representative now and ask them to SUPPORT H 3594!
H 3594 does not change who is eligible to obtain a carry permit. It also does not affect previously issued permits and allows citizens who still wish to obtain a permit in order to carry in other states recognizing South Carolina’s permits, to do so.
This puts South Carolina one step closer to becoming the 26th constitutional carry state. H 3594 strengthens South Carolinians’ right to self-defense. Again, please contact your representative and ask them to SUPPORT H 3594! Then, share this alert with your family and friends, and urge them to do the same.
