Weapons Offenses, Gun Charges and Unlawful Carrying

Did you know that it is illegal to keep a gun under the seat of your car unless it is a locked case? Many people do not, and the crime in South Carolina is known as Unlawful Carrying.

South Carolina has a variety of gun and weapons laws, including Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Violent Offense and Possession of a Stolen Pistol. There are statutes regulating the permit process as well as the type of firearm that may be carried. Additionally, there are certain persons prohibited from possessing a firearm, such as a person previously convicted of a violent crime.
