South Carolina Defending the Second Amendment!

Friday, May 18, 2007

Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!
 

The South Carolina House of Representatives has been working hard this session to advance the rights of law-abiding gun owners.  In March, the House passed House Bill 3212, introduced by State Representative Greg Delleney (R-43).  This bill would change the current conditional reciprocity standard for recognizing Right-to-Carry (RTC) permits issued by other states to a straight recognition standard.  H 3212 was reported out of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, and is awaiting consideration by the full Senate.

In February, the House passed House Bill 3310, introduced by State Representative Mike Pitts (R-14).  This legislation clarifies that RTC permit holders can carry their firearm on their person while in a vehicle.  H 3310 passed the Senate on May 4, and was signed by Governor Mark Sanford (R) on Monday, May 14. 

On Thursday, May 17, the House passed House Bill 3528, also introduced by State Representative Mike Pitts (R-14).  This bill, which is currently awaiting Senate action, would prohibit South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) from releasing the personal information of RTC permit holders unless the request for the information is part of an investigation by law enforcement. 

Please contact your State Senator at (803) 212-6700 and urge him or her to work to ensure the passage of H 3212 and H 3528.  Also be sure to than your Senator for passing H 3310.

 

Also, please contact your State Representative at (803) 734-2010 and thank him or her for passing H 3212, H 3310, and H 3528.
