URGENT - SC Gun Legislation H. 3292


Well-Known Member
I posted the long version of the Grassroots email in a thread already started, but it seemed buried. I hope all will understand, but I think this is much too important to be buried somewhere. Please read the actions requested below by Grassroots regarding the proposed gun rights legislation coming up this next week in subcommittee. They provide email links for all subcommittee members and links to postcards you can just print and mail also. It is very quick and easy. EVERYONE please take time to let SC lawmakers know how we feel.

Explanation and analysis of H. 3292:

House member in the county in which you live. GrassRoots has created
a separate document for each county with post cards for each House
Click here and just pick your county
http://www.scfirearms.org/postcard/Post ... tions.html
and download the
post cards for your county House members and follow the same Action

Steps as 1 through 5 above. Give any extra postcards to your
friends and neighbors to send in.

The politicians MUST hear what good, law-abiding gun owners like YOU
think about H. 3292, and they need to hear it NOW!

Gun owners have the power to win. The question is whether gun owners
have the will to win. If gun owners work together and follow the
Action Steps above, we can get H. 3292 amended and enacted into law.

Thank you for taking immediate action on this very important gun
rights issue!

Bill Rentiers

Executive Officer

GrassRoots GunRights of SC

GrassRoots posted today on H. 3292, It said that the subcommittee voted to adjourn debate on H. 3292 to allow lawmakers more time to draft (with the help of GrassRoots and others) language for a single amendment to address all the the problems with H. 3292. Here is a link to the prepared statement they read:

It is not too late to let lawmakers know how you feel if you haven't yet.

SC panel delays loosening concealed gun law

SC panel delays loosening concealed gun law. It looks like the South Carolina Sheriffs' Association opposes the bill.

"Since 1996, these people have come to the Statehouse every year with an amendment that weakens it, chips away at it, broadens it to the eventual conclusion that we don't need it anymore," said Jeff Moore, the association's executive director. "Eventually, you chip enough, it's meaningless."

What a crock! The whole idea is to restore our rights...so chip away! Even SLED said they don't generally object to the changes.

BTW, everyone hit the poll.

The comments people left are actually more interesting than the story itself. I read thru most of the 200 or so comments. The prevailing theme, whether direct or indirect, seemed to be the inability of people to distinguish between a right and a privilege. I would expect this from opponents of pro-gun legislation, but what is disturbing is the fact that to differing degrees several supposed gun proponent comments reflected the same inability to undererstand a fundamental right as well.

The chipping away seems to be more directed at our personal rights of freedom. Maybe they would better understand if a permit was required before they were allowed to comment on the internet.......

Scan thru some of the comments to see what we are up against.
