South Carolina Members! Call And Urge Your Lawmaker To Pass Straight Right-to-Carry Recognition

Friday, February 4, 2005

H 3110—NRA-backed legislation that seeks to establish a straight recognition law regarding Right-to-Carry permits—was passed out of the House Criminal Laws Subcommittee on February 3, on a unanimous vote. If H 3110 becomes law, South Carolina would automatically recognize any valid Right-to-Carry permit issued by another state. There are now 37 cosponsors of this critical reform that would help to ensure that the right to personal protection does not end at the South Carolina state line. A hearing in the full House Judiciary Committee could take place in the next two weeks. Please continue to contact your Representatives and urge them to cosponsor H 3110, and to work to ensure it becomes law. If your Representative has already signed on, please thank him for his support, and ask him to encourage his colleagues to become cosponsors, as well. You can find contact information for your Representative by using the "Write Your Representatives" tool at www.NRAILA.org.
