    Travelling through......

    While I am in SC quite a bit due to work, I know SC disallows Open Carry. Thus I have really not paid much attention to the gun laws of SC. However I will be driving through SC on vacation, so would someone be so kind as to point me to the state statutes/laws that regulate how a firearm must be legally transported? Thanks!
