SC Permitless Carry Bill Stalled

The bill proposing permitless carry did not make it out of yesterday’s Senate subcommittee hearing, with only one vote in favor–Sen Lee Bright (R-Spartanburg).

Most of the reluctance around permitless carry isn’t so much to do with whether it’s a constitutional right, but whether it’s safe to allow concealed carry without a training requirement. It’s an interesting dilemma; the constitution doesn’t contain stipulations, but is it really wise or prudent?

Permitless (or “constitutional”) carry is not uncommon across the States. A few have gone so far as to offer tax credits for any individual that can prove they attended firearms training in a given year.

Where would your opinion fall on a matter like this? Any ideas on how to respond to worries about training?
