South Carolina: Recognition Bill Delayed this Week, Set to be Heard Next Week

The South Carolina Senate was not able to take up H. 3799 this week, but it will be heard next week.  Last week, state Senator Larry Martin (R-2) made the motion to place this bill on the Special Order calendar, and our thanks go out to the senators who voted in support. Time is rapidly running out on H. 3799, so it is 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 H. 3799 and establish a true recognition standard will be difficult, and anti-gun legislators have stated they will do everything they can to oppose efforts to make H. 3799 consistent and fair.  Although it seems that these legislators may not object to this bill as it currently stands, why should only Georgia be recognized, but not other states with similar issuing standards?  H.3799 will likely 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.  It is equally important that you let your Senator know that you would like her or him to oppose any efforts to block the passage of this critical self-defense bill.  A cloture vote may be required to end attempts to filibuster a properly amended H. 3799.  Please urge your Senator to vote for cloture on H. 3799, if necessary.

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.
