South Carolina: Pro-Gun Bill Vote Postponed

South Carolina:  Pro-Gun Bill Vote Postponed

The South Carolina Senate voted to carry over H. 3799, the Georgia-only Right-to-Carry reciprocity bill, for the second and third straight days.  On Wednesday, time became an issue, and on Thursday, a number of key pro-gun Senators were absent, making this move necessary.  The Senate will likely work on the budget next week, meaning H. 3799 will likely not be considered until the following 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.  With about a month of the 2016 session remaining, time is crucial!  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.

In addition, H. 4398 has been assigned to a Senate Judiciary Committee Subcommittee.  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.  Again, as session begins to wind down, time is crucial for H. 4398 as well!  Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on H. 4398 and urge them to hear this bill, and pass it without any weakening amendments.

Once again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and members of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee in support of these bills!
