South Carolina House Passes Constitutional Carry

Thursday, February 23, 2023

South Carolina House Passes Constitutional Carry

Today, the House voted 87-26 to pass House Bill 3594, the constitutional carry bill. 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. H 3594 now goes to the Senate for further consideration. NRA will keep you updated as it receives a committee assignment.

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. 

NRA thanks Rep. Bobby Cox, Rep. Jason Elliott, and Speaker Murrell Smith for their leadership in successfully guiding this bill through the House. NRA also thanks the representatives who voted in favor of advancing self-defense rights for law-abiding citizens:

Lucas Atkinson, William Bailey, Nathan Ballentine, Justin Bamberg, Bruce Bannister, Thomas Beach, Bart Blackwell, Jeffrey Bradley, Gary Brewer, Thomas Brittain, James Mikell Burns, Joseph M. Bustos, Paula Rawl Calhoon, Jerry Carter, Micajah Caskey, Donald Chapman, William Chumley, Neal Collins, Benjamin Connell, Bobby Cox, Brandon Cox, Heather Ammons Crawford, April Cromer, Sylleste Davis, Jason Elliott, Shannon Erickson, R.
