Rep. West Cox (R-10)
Rep. Sylleste Davis (R-100)

Rep. John McCravy (R-13)
Rep. Cezar McKnight (D-101)
Rep. Chris Murphy (R-98)
Rep. Brandon Newton (R-45)
Rep. Weston Newton (R-120) 

House Bill 3096 allows a law-abiding adult to carry a handgun without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have the right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. Additionally, this legislation maintains the existing Concealed Weapon Permit (CWP) system, so citizens who still wish to obtain a permit may do so. 

In addition, the House will be holding a floor vote tomorrow for House Bill 3094. It allows citizens who hold a concealed weapons permit, to carry a handgun in the manner they choose. Currently, South Carolina is one of just five states that does not explicitly allow open carry, among them Illinois, New York, and California.
