Permitless Carry Bill Moves Forward in South Carolina

A bill that would allow South Carolinians to carry their guns openly without getting a permit continued through the Legislature Tuesday, while a proposal aiming to close the so-called Charleston loophole that is supposed to keep guns out the hands of criminals has stalled for the year.

A Senate panel approved the open-carry measure, often referred to as "constitutional carry," by a 3-1 vote, bringing it just one step away from reaching the Senate floor. The House passed a separate but similar version of open carry earlier this year.

Earlier Tuesday, a different Senate panel adjourned without voting on a bill that would require courts to quickly report to a national database when someone has been charged with a crime or received an order that prevents them from obtaining a gun. In addition, the background check waiting period would be extended from three to five days for two years while the databases are updated.
