APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Vital Pro-Gun Bills to be Heard in South Carolina Legislature!

Friday, March 31, 2006


 

H 4681, introduced by Representative Mike Pitts (R-14), is scheduled to be heard next Thursday, April 6, in the House Judiciary Committee’s Constitutional Laws Subcommittee. 

 

This legislation would remove the ability of local governments to restrict the use, sale, or transportation of firearms during a state of emergency, and would also prohibit South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) from releasing the personal information of Right-to-Carry (RTC) permit holders unless the request for the information is part of an investigation by law enforcement. 

 

H 4681 would prevent outrageous abuses of power such as that took place in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, when local authorities decided they should disarm law-abiding citizens, leaving countless people helpless to defend themselves against violent criminals during a time of virtual anarchy.  It would also prevent anti-gun newspapers from harassing law-abiding RTC permit holders by publishing their personal information.  In addition, H 4837, introduced by Representative Jeff Duncan (R-15), is also scheduled to be heard.  This legislation would prohibit employers from imposing regulations that restrict employees from transporting and storing firearms in their locked, private vehicles while parked on their employer’s property. 

 

Please contact the members of the Constitutional Laws Subcommittee and urge them to support H 4681 and H 4837.
