Controversial legislation that would allow the carrying of firearms without a permit has been passed by the South Carolina House of Representatives.

The 64-46 vote on Wednesday now moves the bill to the state Senate, where it is faces an uphill battle and is expected to fail.

The no-permit bill has been hotly-debated political football in the Palmetto State.

"This bill doesn't help the Second Amendment," said Rep. Bill Crosby, a Charleston Republican, The State reports.

"All it does is it makes these good ol' boys who like to have guns strapped to their hips not conceal them."

The House also approved a bill by 80-8 allowing first responders to carry guns on school property after a one-week training program, according to the Post and Courier.
