South Carolina: Pro-Gun Bills to be Heard in Subcommittee Next Week

On Thursday, March 5, the House Judiciary Committee’s General and Family Laws Subcommittee will hold a hearing with several pro-gun reforms on the schedule, including:

House Bill 3025, introduced by state Representative Alan Clemmons (R-107), would replace the current conditional reciprocity system for recognizing Right to Carry permits issued by other states with a straight recognition standard.  In other words, any valid permit issued by another state would automatically be recognized in The Palmetto State. 

House Bill 3306, introduced by state Representative Garry Smith (R-27), would prohibit most businesses and public or private employers from establishing policies that prohibit law-abiding citizens from storing lawfully-owned firearms and/or ammunition out of sight within their locked motor vehicles. 

House Bill 3116, introduced by state Representative Mike Pitts (R-14), is a “Fraudulent Firearms and Ammunition Purchase Prevention” bill, and strengthens the law prohibiting straw purchases of firearms and ammunition from Federal Firearms License holders.  This bill is designed to help prevent individuals who are prohibited from purchasing firearms or ammunition in South Carolina from engaging others who are not prohibited into making the purchases for them.  It would also protect lawful firearm retailers from illegal gun sting operations such as those by anti-gun former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.  While mayor, Bloomberg had sent hired agents into other states to attempt illegal firearm purchases in an effort to blame federally licensed firearm retailers for gun crime in New York City and around the country. 

Please contact members of the General and Family Laws Subcommittee and urge them to support these important pro-gun bills.
