South Carolina’s Governor Ready for Constitutional Carry: “Get It To My Desk”


In a move that will surely send the political left into some sort of tizzy or tantrum, the governor of South Carolina is ready to galvanize the 2nd Amendment in his state.

The right to bear arms in America is an absolutely essential right, with only the freedom of speech possibly being considered more important to our nation.  As cliche as the phrase has become, the 2nd Amendment is what allows all other amendments to be enforced by We The People, as Governor Henry McMaster explicitly understands.  That’s why McMaster has told state legislators that he is ready to get a certain bill sent up to his desk so that he can promptly sign it into law.

“On April 6, Breitbart News reported that the South Carolina House passed permitless carry legislation sponsored by state Rep. Mike Pitts (R-14). That legislation, which would abolish the need for concealed carry permits, is now with the Senate.

“Pitts’ bill would recognize South Carolinians’ right to carry a handgun openly or concealed without a permit for self-defense. The Post and Courier quoted Pitts saying, ‘This bill is a very simple bill. It means, by definition of the Constitution, it gives you the ability to keep and bear arms without having to be permitted by the country.’

 “Governor McMaster concurs. According to The Charlotte Observer, McMaster’s spokesman, Brian Symmes, said, ‘Governor McMaster appreciates the House’s hard work on this bill, believes it is constitutional and will sign it if it reaches his desk.’”
The passage and subsequent signing of the bill would make South Carolina the 13th state in the country to allow firearm owners to concealed carry their weapon without any extraneous permitting process.  This so-called “constitutional carry” falls well within the bounds of the definition of the 2nd Amendment, and not only provides freedom and security to firearm owners, but will certainly act as a deterrent to criminals in the state.
