South Carolina: Pro-Gun Bills Need Your Help!

Friday, February 8, 2008

Besides S714, there are some positive bills pending action in the South Carolina General Assembly. 

H 3528 would restrict personal information regarding the holder of a concealable weapons permit (CWP) to be released only to a law enforcement agency to aid in an official investigation, or to comply with a subpoena or court order.  This will help protect the privacy of CWP holders, and prevent, for example, newspapers from publishing a list of permit holders.  This legislation is pending action in the Senate Judiciary Committee. 

Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to support H 3528.

Finally, H 3212 would require South Carolina to recognize valid Right-to-Carry permits issued by other states.  NRA has been working for several years to improve the current reciprocity standard for permits, which are rather restrictive, and this bill would establish a straight recognition standard.  H 3212 is currently on the Senate Calendar, and could be taken up by the full Senate in the near future.  Please contact your State Senator and urge him to support H 3212 as passed by the House, and to not support any amendments that would weaken this legislation.
