South Carolina: Pro-Gun Legislation Progresses through Legislature

Today, H. 4398 passed the House Judiciary Committee’s General and Family Laws Subcommittee and will now move to the full House Judiciary Committee for further consideration.  Introduced by pro-gun state Representative Alan Clemmons (R-107), this legislation seeks to amend South Carolina’s bankruptcy laws and recognize the fundamental right to personal protection by ensuring citizens who have fallen on hard times, financially, will not be required to sell all of their firearms maintained for personal protection in order to satisfy their debts.  H. 4398 allows for the retention of up to three firearms, and 1,000 rounds of ammunition per firearm.  It is important that you contact the members of House Judiciary Committee and urge them to support H. 4398.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact members of the House Judiciary Committee with your support!

Additionally, the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee hearing for both H. 3025 and H. 3799 has been rescheduled for next Thursday, March 24.  The hearing will take place at 9:00am in Room 408 of the Gressette Building.  If you are available, please consider attending this hearing to show your support for these important bills!  

H. 3025 was introduced by state Representative Alan Clemmons (R-107) with the intention of passing a true Right-to-Carry recognition bill, which would ensure that South Carolina recognizes ALL valid Right-to-Carry permits issued by other states.  After facing opposition from both the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) and the South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association (SCSA), H. 3025 was amended to become a Permitless Carry bill.  H. 3025 would allow any law-abiding citizen who may lawfully possess a handgun to carry a handgun for personal protection, without the need to first acquire a permit.  This bill passed the House of Representatives with a strong, bipartisan majority.

H. 3799 was introduced by state Representative Bill Hixon (R-83), and would expand recognition of Right-to-Carry permits to Georgia.  NRA's goal is to have H. 3799 amended so that South Carolina will recognize ALL valid Right-to-Carry permits issued by other states.​
