Pro-gun and Pro-hunting Measures Need Your Support in South Carolina!

Friday, April 11, 2008

Make Your Voice Heard Today!

Several bills which affect the rights of South Carolina’ law-abiding gun owners require your attention.

H 3212, which would expand the number of right-to-carry permits issued by other states that South Carolina would recognize, is still pending a Conference Committee.  This improvement over the existing right-to-carry reciprocity standard would also expand the number of states that will recognize a South Carolina permit.  NRA will continue to work with State Representatives and State Senators to ensure this critical reform is passed, and we will alert you as soon as the Conference Committee is set.

NRA continues to work with key State Senators to ensure
H 3202 is amended to adopt language that will clearly protect our hunting heritage in the Palmetto State for future generations.  This legislation would allow for the voters in South Carolina to vote on an Amendment to the South Carolina Constitution that would recognize the right to hunt and fish.  Please contact your State Senator and urge him or her to work with NRA to ensure this proposed amendment offers clear language necessary to assure hunting and fishing in South Carolina will be protected from attacks by animal "rights" extremists.  Hunting and fishing are vital to sound wildlife management programs, and must be recognized as protected rights of the people.  To contact your State Senator please click here.

H 3528, which would protect the privacy of law-abiding Concealable Weapons Permit (CWP) holders, was finally ratified this week, and now is awaiting action by Governor Mark Sanford (R).  Please take a moment to contact Governor Sanford at (803) 734-2100 and urge him to sign H 3528. 

Finally, S 1259, State Senator Dick Elliott's (D-28) ammunition encoding/serialization bill that would require all handgun and "assault weapon" ammunition be marked with "a unique identifier that has been applied by etching onto the base of the bullet projectile," remains in the Senate Judiciary Committee.  This bill does not define what constitutes "assault weapon" ammunition, nor does it clarify whether "handgun ammunition" includes ammunition that can be used in both a handgun and rifle, even if the purchase is strictly for rifle use. Ammunition manufacturers and vendors would be entered into an Ammunition Coding System Database (ACSD), and vendors would be required to maintain personal information on anyone who purchases these types of ammunition. The legislation also requires that any privately owned ammunition that has not been encoded must be disposed of by 2012. The cost of the ACSD will be passed on to consumers, and this bill would put an end to the practice of reloading handgun and "assault weapon" ammunition.  Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, listed below, and urge them to oppose S 1259!
