Sherra Scott is the president of South Carolina Carry, an organization pushing for more pro-gun legislation. While she applauds McMaster for signing the bill into law, it’s still not exactly what she had hoped for.

“We were hoping for constitutional carry,” Scott said.

Constitutional carry would have allowed anyone to openly carry a gun without a permit. While Scott wishes that’s what passed, she said open carry will still have benefits, primarily individuals looking to harm someone likely won’t target those who have their weapon visible.

“If we look like we have the ability to fight back, then they’re more likely to move on and leave us alone,” Scott said.

How long until the retention holster / gun snatch kerfuffle rises in the Fudd consciousness?

oh goodie dougie...another wanna_be SC firearm advocacy for SC citizens who are pretending they are advocating just cuz they have a website with outdated commentary on "pending" non profit states [SC SoS states they were incorp as non profit in 2015]; under sponsors there are 63 first and last names [wonder if the sponsors know their name and county is listed?]; while incorp in 2015, one legislative listed in 2017 & 2018, ad nauseam, yet nothing mentioned about the results of their advocacy -anywhere on their site.

so you are and your out of state egoists are excited SC citizens can open carry w/SC overseers insisting SC citizens have a SC STATE privilege card -- good to see yet another success from the SC Carry advocacy org.

oh wait did they also capitulate like the LoneStar state and include in the legislation, LE can immediately stop SC OC'g citizens and "ask for papers please?"[oh wait 21-31-215 already mandates show and tell to LE's}

finally the SC Gov signed this into law 17 May and two months later you tout it and absolutely nothing about it on the SC advocating website...

Wisconsin has been OC by omission from the statutes since at least 1997. Open carry was just not mentioned.

Then in 2011, with legal concealed carry, a subsection was added to the Disorderly Conduct statute (947.01) reading “Unless other facts and circumstances that indicate a criminal or malicious intent on the part of the person apply, a person is not in violation of, and may not be charged with a violation of, this section for loading, carrying, or going armed with a firearm, without regard to whether the firearm is loaded or is concealed or openly carried.”

This codified open carry and ended debate as to its legality.

I commented to Milady Wife at dinner last night on the effect of the SC law on the gated communities of Kiawah and Seabrook Island, whence we moved, “They’ll be all atwitter at the thought of some ‘guest’ strutting around their Islands while openly armed.”. (SC has state preemption of carry ordinances.). I mentioned that Wisconsin has always allowed OC, and she responded that she had never seen it.

I OC occasionally and she does not see or notice it. I CC almost always and she does not see or notice it.

Absence of evidence (what one may see) is not evidence of absence.

Charleston is passing their own rules.

So, Charleston is still promoting Jim Crow laws.

But the state unconstitutionally regulates open carry. I've pointed this out before.

South Carolina is still living in the Jim Crow era. I'm surprised they don't still have black and white drinking fountains. Some southern states just can't let go.

Depending on one’s understanding of the Second Amendment, let alone its jurisprudence, all states do that prohibit open carry of any weapon. And the Jim Crow Era as exemplified by modern South Carolina is not so bad. Race relations there were the most comfortable that I have enjoyed.

Realize the difference between IS and OUGHT arguments.

Of those states that regulate both open and conceal carry they are in direct conflict with the constitution and the supreme court. Since Heller these states have not been challenged as to their stance. Though, in general, I disagree with the courts belief that rights are not absolute, to regulate that right governments must prove that they have a compelling interest in restricting your rights. The problem is liberal courts always seem to justify the governments compelling interest.

So, the "Depending on one’s understanding of the Second Amendment" idea is horse-pucky. If the founding fathers intended exceptions to the Bill of rights they would have so stated. They didn't.

Based on the Supreme Court reasoning of not absolute we can stop woman from voting just to mention one. The boarders extend 100 miles into the country.

Rights? the only rights you have are those the government grants you. Papers please.
