Yes, the second amendment does give citizens the right to bear arms but that does not mean that this right extends to everyone, let me explain. If a person who has a felony criminal record possesses a firearm in South Carolina, in most every case, it is illegal. If a person has a shotgun in the back seat which is used for hunting, it too can be illegal, unless the gun is properly secured in a case, unloaded and stored appropriately with bullets stored separately. If this is done, it is legal to have a gun or shotgun in your car. If a person has a CWP (Concealed Weapons Permit) ,then they are permitted to carry that weapon into public establishments that do not post a sign saying that they do not allow concealed weapons. A person with a CWP license must also observe the rules of having the gun unloaded, properly stored, with the bullets stored separately. South Carolina is one of the few states that allows ordinary citizens to apply for and obtain a CWP license. If you are one of the people who are not allowed to have a firearm, it is illegal for you to have one and you can be charged with illegal possession of a firearm or pistol.
