South Carolina: Right-to-Carry Recognition Bill to be Heard in Subcommittee

One of NRA-ILA’s top priorities this session is the passage of H. 3240, introduced by state Representative Alan Clemmons (R-107).  This legislation would establish that South Carolina recognizes all valid Right-to-Carry (RTC) permits issued by other states.  The bill is currently in the Constitutional Laws Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee​, and should be heard on Wednesday, February 8.  While most of those subcommittee members are supporters of the Second Amendment, contacting them to politely encourage that they support H. 3240 WITHOUT any weakening amendments would help to ensure the bill is sent to the full Judiciary Committee in its current form.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact the subcommittee members.

Constitutional Law Subcommittee Members:

Representative F. Gregory Delleney, Jr.
Representative Peter M. McCoy, Jr.
Representative Wm. Weston J. Newton
Representative Mandy Powers Norrell
Representative James E. Smith, Jr.

Efforts have already been launched to gut this legislation, so it is critical that you also contact your state Representative and urge them to support H. 3240 without any amendments that would weaken its goal of establishing true RTC recognition in South Carolina.

Please stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on this bill as the 2017 legislative session progresses.
