South Carolina: Efforts to Reconsider H.3240 Fall Short

Yesterday’s effort in the South Carolina House of Representatives to take up H. 3240 fell short.  This bill, introduced by state Representative Alan Clemmons (R-107), sought to ensure that South Carolina recognizes all valid Right-to-Carry (RTC) permits issued by other states.  Unfortunately, the bill was amended on the floor to make the bill a reciprocity bill, rather than a universal recognition bill.  This means that, in order for South Carolina to recognize a permit issued by another state, that state would also have to recognize a South Carolina permit.  While reciprocity is an improvement over current law, NRA supports universal recognition as a stronger policy.
