South Carolina: Pro-Gun Bills to be Heard by Judiciary Committee

Early next week, House Bill 3025 and House Bill 3116 will be heard by the full House Judiciary Committee.  These pro-gun bills need your help!  It is critical that you contact members of the House Judiciary Committee immediately in support of these bills.

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 South Carolina. 

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.  Federal law already prohibits straw purchases, however South Carolina law is not strong enough on this topic. 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 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. 

Using the contact information provided below, please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee in support of both pieces of legislation.  Urge members of the Committee to vote in SUPPORT of HB 3025 and HB 3116.
