South Carolina General Assembly Adjourns, House Bill 3292 To Be Considered Again Next Session

Friday, June 3, 2011

The South Carolina General Assembly adjourned on June 2, and failed to take up House Bill 3292 for consideration.  While this legislation initially showed great promise in making a number of substantial changes to South Carolina gun laws, several unfortunate circumstances leave us waiting until next year to revive it.  Fortunately, we have strong commitments from several key Republicans that ensure our ability to take necessary actions to bring H 3292 back next session.  We also have commitments to make the necessary changes to H 3292 which would return the legislation to its status as a strong, pro-gun reform bill. 

Our thanks go out to state Representative Mike Pitts who introduced the bill, state Representative Thad Viers who has committed to amending the bill to make it a solid pro-gun bill, and House Judiciary Committee Chairman James Harrison who has committed to bringing the bill up in committee as soon as possible.  Please take a moment to contact these legislators and thank them for their commitments.
