South Carolina City Introduces Proposal to Ban Open Carry

Is the South Carolina state government going to let the anti-gun Left carve out anti-Second Amendment safe spaces across the Palmetto State?

On November 15, 2021, city council of Conway, South Carolina approved the first reading of an ordinance that would ban the open carry of firearms in city buildings and city-sponsored events.

Earlier this month council members participated in a presentation about South Carolina being declared a sanctuary for the Second Amendment. In addition, the state scrapped a $50 fee for concealed weapon permits and now allows for lawful individuals who possess a concealed weapon permit to open carry their weapons, or in their vehicle. The only times they are prohibited from doing so is when they enter venues with signage that explicitly says the open carry of firearms is prohibited.

According to WBTW News13, a second reading of this local ban is set for December.

Despite being a solidly red state in the South, South Carolina still has considerable work to do on Second Amendment policy.

According to Guns & Ammo magazine’s Best States for Gun Owners rankings, South Carolina is ranked in 22nd place, while it’s ranked in a sub-par 29th place for the magazine’s best states for concealed carry rankings.

South Carolina has a lot of work to do on Second Amendment related matters. But first it must secure its municipalities and prevent the Left from carving out gun-free, criminal safe spaces within them.
