South Carolina: Recognition Bill Designated for Special Order to be Heard Next Week

South Carolina: Recognition Bill Designated for Special Order to be Heard Next Week

Today, the South Carolina Senate voted to place H. 3799 on special order where it could be heard next week.  Your NRA-ILA would like to thank the Senators who supported the Special Order for H.3799. While this is great news for H. 3799, it is still critical that you continue to contact your state Senator to act quickly and support NRA’s attempts to amend H. 3799, as well as its final passage.


As previously reported, H. 3799's current form makes an improvement to existing law by statutorily adding Georgia to the list of states whose Right-to-Carry permits will be recognized in South Carolina.  This improvement, however, is based solely on the fact that Georgia borders South Carolina, and has nothing to do with establishing uniformity or consistency to South Carolina law.  NRA's goal is to have the bill amended to ensure South Carolina recognizes ALL valid permits, which would mean South Carolina would join the majority of other states when it comes to permit recognition.

Attempts to amend it and establish a true recognition standard have now been met with objections in the Senate.  Anti-gun legislators have stated they will do everything they can to oppose efforts to make H. 3799 consistent and fair.  Though, why should Georgia be recognized, but not other states?  H.3799 may be subjected to procedural maneuvers in an attempt to doom the legislation.  It is important that you contact your state Senator and urge them to amend H. 3799, changing it from the current Georgia-only reciprocity expansion to a true recognition standard.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator in support of NRA's efforts to amend and pass H. 3799.
