South Carolina: Tax Holiday Weekend Making Progress!

Friday, March 26, 2010

House Bill 4220, which would permanently establish the tax holiday on firearms sales the weekend following Thanksgiving, passed out of the State House on Wednesday, March 24.  This legislation is now in the Senate, where it has been referred to the Senate Committee on Finance

Our thanks go out to State Representative Mike Pitts (R-14) for sponsoring H4220, as well as State Representative Jeff Duncan (R-15), who made the motion to recall the bill from the House Ways and Means Committee.  State Representative Duncan’s motion made it possible for the bill to be voted on by the full House this week.  We also thank all the State Representatives who voted in favor of H4220, which passed by a vote of 100 to 2.

Please be sure to contact members of the Senate Committee on Finance, and encourage them to support H4220.

In addition, NRA has been working with State Representative Garry R. Smith (R-27) on House Bill 3994.  This legislation would prohibit the establishment of any rules that would forbid the storing of firearms in a locked privately owned vehicle in parking lots, thus protecting your right to keep a firearm in your car if you travel with one for personal protection, or choose to hunt or target shoot before or after work. 

NRA is working with State Representative Smith, as well as members of the House Judiciary General Laws Sub-Committee (where the bill currently resides), to ensure an amendment is introduced that will help remove the concerns property owners may have regarding liability issues.

The House will not reconvene until April 13.  NRA will be sure to alert you as to what you can do to support H3994 as our efforts on this bill continue to develop.
