South Carolina:  Gun Bills Continue to Move Through the Legislature

The South Carolina Senate has still not yet acted on H. 3799, the Georgia-only Right-to-Carry reciprocity bill; however, H. 3799 may be taken up for consideration at any time next week.  Senator Lee Bright (R-12) continues to work with NRA on this effort, and he intends to offer an amendment on the floor to improve H. 3799.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Senator and urge them to support this amendment!

In its current form, this legislation makes an improvement by statutorily adding Georgia to the list of states whose Right-to-Carry permits will be recognized in South Carolina.  However, it needs to be amended to a true recognition standard so that South Carolina will recognize ALL valid Right-to-Carry permits issued by other states.

Additionally, H. 3189, Campaign Finance Reform legislation which had previously been stalled in the state Senate, continues to present a problem.  Your NRA-ILA is opposed to H. 3189 in its current form due to concerns regarding its potential impact on a number of areas, including NRA’s ability to simply communicate with its own members.  This legislation creates a high level of uncertainty for organizations that participate and communicate information relating to candidates and elections (and perhaps even legislation) to individuals in The Palmetto State.  Please contact your state Senator in opposition to H. 3189! 

Finally, the House of Representatives passed H. 4398 on Tuesday, April 19, with an overwhelming 98-5 bipartisan vote.  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 any firearms, provided the total value does not exceed $5,000.00.  This bill now resides in the Senate, where it has been referred to the Judiciary Committee.  Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to support H. 4398.
