A person 18 years old can do many things such as vote, buy tobacco, and more but the cannot legally concealed carry a firearm for legitimate self defense.

According to SLED, in 2012 558 violent crimes per 100,000 were committed. The national average being 386.9 per 100,000. That's roughly 1 in 180 people being victimized in South Carolina.

So in South Carolina, there is a real need to the means to protect ones life, family and property against violent criminals who would otherwise cause bodily harm and in some cases kill a person who had no legal right to a effective means of self defense.
