Governor in This State Promises to Support New Gun Bills – One of Which is Absolutely Brilliant

South Carolina is a state known for its commitment to constitutional values and American freedoms. That, along with its natural beauty, is one reason so many military members retire in South Carolina. Now lawmakers in the Palmetto State have proposed legislation that would rescind some of the state’s existing restrictions on gun ownership, and they have the full support of Governor Nikki Haley, who promised during her campaign:

The right to bear arms was deemed so critical by our Founders that they spelled it out in absolute terms, and it is my belief that any governmental action that undermines that right is in turn undermining the very freedoms that built our great nation. I hold a Concealed Weapons Permit myself, and in this state we have issues that make it difficult for CWP holders to carry. As governor, I will continue to fight against any government infringement on the 2nd Amendment.

GunOwners.org describes the pending bills:

(1) Constitutional Carry (S 105 and HB 3716).

Senator Lee Bright (R-Greenville & Spartanburg) and Rep. Jonathon Hill (R-Anderson) have introduced legislation to make South Carolina the seventh “constitutional carry” state in the country.

The concept of “constitutional carry” is simple: An individual’s ability to exercise his or her Second Amendment rights shouldn’t depend on a “permit” from the government

You don’t need a government license to write a book. So why should you have to get the government’s okay in order to carry a firearm to protect yourself and your family?

Currently, Americans in Vermont, Alaska, Wyoming, Arizona, Arkansas, and most of Montana can carry a firearm without a government license. Lest anyone fail to notice, these are not exactly high-crime areas as a result of their diligence for the constitutional rights of their citizens. In fact, these are some of the safest places in America.

S 105 and HB 3716 would add South Carolina to that illustrious list of Constitution-loving states. However, both bills are stuck in committee and need your help to blast it out onto the floors of each chamber.

(2) Blocking federal gun control (S 125 and S 117, by Senator Lee Bright).

The first bill, S 125, is modeled after legislation that has been enacted in several states across the country.

The bill declares that all “federal acts, laws, executive orders, rules [and] regulations” which violate the Second Amendment are void and “have no effect in this State.”

Thus, S 125 prohibits all federal, state and local officials from enforcing such gun control restrictions.

The second bill, S 117, does everything the first bill does, but adds another pro-gun provision. Namely, with few exceptions, any firearm or ammunition that is manufactured in the state (and stays in the state) would be free of gun control restrictions.

This second bill would also mandate that guns and ammo manufactured in the Palmetto state are to be stamped with the legend, “Made in South Carolina.” Once the items are stamped with this legend, they will no longer be “subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration.”

Under the law, any official who is found to have interfered with possession of such a firearm or ammunition would be guilty of a felony.

    Sounds to me like all 50 states should go on those same principles

      You got that right.

        Really, You sound like one of the experts to me.

    • usncb

      The 2nd amendment, that weirdos are distorting and trying to ruin. The only reason that we need a CCP/ or a license to carry in any state is so the gov.’t knows where the arms are. this way criminals get a free pass.

      • Rx7pj

        Garbage

        • rmagnano

          Really?

          • Rx7pj

            You actually believe the the reason for CCP is so the government know where your guns are and criminals get a free pass??? That’s garbage

          • porch4

            it’s not all garbage

            Using profanities and obscenity and insulting others puts you in the same category as rx7, “thekev”.

          • b4k9zp

            None of it is garbage. And you provide no valid evidence, and use no conceivable form of logic, thinking ability or reasoning ability to prove it is garbage. In fact your statement is just that it is garbage, showing you know you have nothing to support your ill-informed, unknowledgable opinions.

          • the kev

            Fuck u little girl bitch

          • b4k9zp

            Using obscenities and profanity invalidates your statements, “thekev”.

          • b4k9zp

            Yes, there are only two reasons for the government to require a payment of a fee and registration of a person who wants to exercise his/her ABSOLUTE constitutionally protected, unalienable right to buy and carry firearms. One is to create an unconstitutional tax or fee, or for exercising the right to perform an activity that is protected by the Constitution, in order to (1) make it more expensive to exercise that right, and infringe on the rights of the citizens, which is a highly racist means of determining who can have guns, and (2) gain revenue for the government by illegal and unconstitutional means. The only other reason is to create a list of everyone who has guns so that the government knows where to go when, (not IF) they decide to start confiscating them.

            They serve absolutely no other purpose. For those who are both determined and inclined to commit violent crimes against others will not pay any attention to laws that require them to register themselves as a gun owner, because they know that (1) such laws only guarantee that their intended victims are defenseless against their predations and (2) the penalties for not registering themselves are nothing in comparison to the much heavier penalties that exist for committing violent crimes like assault, battery, rape, murder, and armed robbery. So criminals get a free pass. They don’t have to register their guns or themselves, and they have a much easier time robbing, raping, assaulting and murdering their victims.

            Your comments are without merit at any time, and are invalidated in any case by your constant preference for calling others “idiots”, “morons” and other pejoratives.

            More proof from YOU that you know you are not as intelligent as anyone whom you label an “idiot” or state “has an IQ lower then [sic] a peanut”, which doesn’t even make any sense. Your personal attacks prove you know you have no facts whatever, and no form of logic, reasoning ability or thinking ability to support your hate-filled and fear filled opinions, as always.

          • b4k9zp

            More proof that you invalidate everything you are stating by making personal attacks against those with whom you disagree. Wishing others dead shows a great deal of rage, in addition.

          • b4k9zp

            Since you invalidate everything you state by calling others names (and can’t even get the gender correct) You are without any factual logical, rational or critical thinking ability and never have been able to rise above your two year old temper tantrums. Nothing you state has any truth in support of it, Despite your blatant lying and hate speech and constant name calling, I have supported the entire bill of rights all my life, something you have NEVER done. You want to murder those who disagree with you. I just point out, truthfully that threatening to murder someone is against the terms of use of this forum.

            Despite your blatant lies, I never insulted you at any time. Just made truthful statements that you were and still are a liar.

          • the kev

        The Background check required by most states is to “check” for felons and people with clear records, NOT a gun registry for the media to publish. < as has happened….

        • mtman2

          Yeah, and if one was a felon that wanted a firearm- does anybody think that they wouldn’t get one anyway; steal them buy from the thief.

          This has nothing to do with safety as it just does not exist in this illegal venue, period.

          It is about disarming the U.S. public which is a problem for the Globalist bankers and One Worlder politico’s – to run over the U.S. public and strip OUR 3 Founding documents from the record ~!

      • b4k9zp

        That’s not a good enough reason to violate the civil rights of the individual. You’re correct, though, that the only reason for CCP or license, and/or any background check is because the government says that anyone who wants to buy or carry a gun is a potential criminal, and must prove to the government that they are not. Wonder whatever happened to the legal principle that person is INNOCENT until the government proves beyonod a reasonable doubt to a jury of the person’s peers that he committed a specific crime in a specific place on a specific date?

        Bills/laws that make all members of a certain class (persons who wish to buy firearms, and/or persons who want to exercise their constitutionally protected, unalienable civil rights (for any purpose) are guilty without any kind of adjudication as to guilt or innocence of committing a crime, or not being of sound mind, are called “bills of attainder” and declare that the person is not eligible to exercise that right unless an individual proves he is not a criminal or not of sound mind. Such laws are flatly prohibited to the federal government by Article I, section nine, paragraph three, and to all the states by Article I, section ten, paragraph one of the Constitution.

        They not only violate the second amendment, but those two sections of the Constitution itself.

    • 2broke4 her

      you would have a hard time convincing Califoreignia liberal politicians to go to those principles, they still think with all their guns laws they are still keeping crime down while at the same time their dumbass laws they created still has Califoreignia as the highest murder rate, number one in the nation! and they still think by creating more laws that it will reduce it even more!

I never voted for him as Governor or President!

        California being a one party state is the reason behind the restrictions and that is the reason Brown doesn’t think Californians have the right to protect themselves and their families however, he has his private army protecting him. California is a nanny state, and until someone takes over the Governorship with the guts to cut these welfare programs, it will remain a stepchild of those western states with true leadership

        • Robert F

          Did I hear correctly that there was a bill introduced in California to split California into 2 or 3 states? If so, is it moving forward? I hope it is true, but with the liberosity majority in California, there is not much chance.

          • Daniel Wright

            There are two chances. Slim and none. If La allowed that to happen they wouldn’t be allowed to steal water from the valley farmers any more.

            That would be terrible. If they split into 2 or 3 states, would you really want 4 or 6 U.S. senators from that part of the country? Scary thought – 6 Feinsteins/Boxers?

          • Robert F

            I have a friend who lives in Sacramento. She says that part of the state is conservative but they have no chance in elections because of the lower portion of the state being so liberal. She just want a chance.

          We had four Republican governors between 1983 and 2011 and look what it got us. Farther to the left. Until we dominate the Governors mansion and both houses of the legislature we will sink deeper and deeper into the abyss.

            That is true but is is hard to work on the machine without the proper tools and the Demoncrats would not agree with any plans that were good for the state and thus: a one party state is just that, a one party state.

        They ought to look at statistics instead of blowing hot air. In Illinois, where I live, every place in the state, except Chicago, allows firearms ownership.

  • Dynamicdave

    Nice. I live in NV. Now, while open carry is permissible, (I prefer to open carry anyways. Great deterrent.) it gets expensive to apply for a CCW. I have found one place that will let you do your 8 hour class for free, then you pay for your own ammunition (I believe you fire 30 rounds) and they will issue your CCW. Any other place I go to wants to charge anywhere from $140 to $200. I would use my CCW privilege in certain circumstance. However, walking to a 7-11 late at night, I would prefer to open carry. If you don’t have a gun showing, they are going to look at you like an open invitation to rob. I don’t want to be put into the position to where I have to try to get my gun out before I get jumped, especially if they sneak up on me. If you have a gun in the open, they will think twice as to whether it’s worth the hassle to bother you. There are pros and cons for both sides, valid points for both concealed and open. Many times it just depends on the situation. In a public park, concealed. No need to get excited, or alarm a bunch of liberal parents with their children. The hypocrites can thank you later if they ever get robbed while in the park and you happen to be available to save their sorry butts. As I said earlier, it just depends on the situation and your surroundings. But I love the direction that South Carolina is heading.

    • 2broke4 her

      even if you are open carry they still can sneak up on you at gun point. the only purpose a CCW doe is give the element of a return surprise. I was held up at gun point and soon as the guy turned away because he has to keep looking around for someone else coming, I pulled mine and put it to his head, I gave him the option, getting my clothes covered with his blood or he surrenders his gun to me and lie on the ground while cop show up, he chose to lie on the ground!

      • mm

        I like that

      • Dynamicdave

        I disagree. I’ve open carried as a civilian for 18 years. Do you think a group of individuals are going to be more apt to jump a person who shows no weapon on them, or one who has a .357 strapped to his side? You do the math. Nothing is a guarantee, however, common logic dictates that you would attack the person who appears unarmed, not somebody with a piece strapped on their side. You are simply lucky that you had the time to pull the gun, because of his distraction. What if he’s faster than you? What if he saw you reaching for your gun and decided to pull the trigger? But you also help to make my case easier. He held you up because he saw no gun. You put yourself in that position because you looked unarmed. Don’t you think that if you had that piece on your side, he would have not attempted to rob you, or maybe picked an easier target? Something to think about.

        • Marty

          Sorry Dave, you are much more likely to get ambushed if you open carry. Cops open carry and look how often they get ambushed. I’ve been carrying for 44 years (31 as a cop) and believe me, you are much safer CCW.

          • b4k9zp

            That’s because they are often the only ones in an area who are carrying openly, plus they wear the badge and a uniform. If every law abiding citizen is carrying openly (as they used to be able to do in the 1800s and early part of the 1900s before the Jim Crow laws started prohibiting carrying of fireams, only the criminals carried concealed.

          • Marty

            And….If every law abiding citizen carried concealed, the crooks wouldn’t know who was and was not armed. When Florida first passed their CCW law, the crime rate lowered drastically except for the obvious tourists (driving rental cars). The crooks knew the tourists wouldn’t be armed so they focused their criminal intentions on them rather then taking the chance of trying to victimize an armed person. Since then, every State which passed right to carry laws saw a similar drop in violent crime. The states which didn’t pass such laws, continued to see increases in street crime. These are the facts, and only a liberal argues with facts.

          • b4k9zp

            Crime rates would continue to drop if everyone carried openly. The important thing is that everyone be armed–that anyone who is able shall have a firearm in their possession at all times. openly or concealed.

            BTW, up until Jim Crow laws started banning carrying of firearms, all law abiding citizens carried their weapons openly. Only the sneak thieves and other criminals carried any weapon concealed, be it a knife or chiv, blackjack or other club, or a handgun, shotgun or rifle of any kind. (Why else do you think that the National Firearms Act of 1934 and 1938 strictly regulated the sale of shotguns with barrel lengths of less than 18.5 inches and rifles with barrel lengths of less than 16.5 inches, and overall lengths of either of less than 24 inches (IIRC)–because those weapons were more easily concealable than the full sized versions of the weapons!!! )

          • Marty

            I fully agree that all people legally allowed to be armed, should be, everywhere they go. The problem as I see it is people have changed since the days of the six shooter. Lots of people get upset with seeing folks openly carrying, The problem with this is those people contact their politicians (local, state and fed) demanding new gun laws. That is not a problem with concealed carry, out of sight, out of mind. Why give the anti gun commies a leg to stand on. If you don’t want to obtain a permit from the gov’t, and still insist on carrying, you can always move to one of the 6 right to carry states (and growing) where no permit is required to CCW. I just don’t think we should give the anti gunners more ammo to push for more anti gun bills.

          • b4k9zp

            isn’t that just too bad that some people who are scared of their own shadows and refuse to think at all at all times are “upset” with seeing people carrying openly? For they have no problem with police officers carrying openly, and they are probably more likely to commit untoward acts of violence than civilians

            All gun laws are unconstitutional, and always will be.

          • Marty

            You’re cutting off your nose to spite your face. This country will never be what it once was. We now have almost 50% of the population getting free stuff from the other half of the population. The POS politicians work harder for these lame and lazy then they do for those who pay. Those who get the free stuff seem to speak the loudest. If you think the politicians aren’t going to listen to the liberals who complain about open carry, you’re sadly mistaken. Why give them the ammo to pass more laws? I’m afraid you sound like one of those wackos who don’t believe in following any laws ie: drivers licenses, vehicle registration, etc., and if that’s the case there is no need to continue this conversation. Go ahead and piss off the not so supreme court. The Second Amendment was only saved by one vote. That could change in a heart beat and probably will with a hillary win. Although I must admit, if that happens, and they re-write the Second Amendment, I for one will not turn in my weapons. Luckily, most states have their own State Constitution which gives their citizens the right to own firearms. NO State has to follow not so supreme court rulings which violate their own Constitutions. There is precedent for this, and I see this happening more and more as we get Unconstitutional rulings from d.c..

      • b4k9zp

        if every person in a given locality is carrying openly, (like at police stations, and firing ranges) then the criminals don’t normally even try to rob such places, unless they have a very strong death wish.

    • dog491

      Dave I used to be a ccw instructor. I told every class that while it is true that an open carry will deter many from attacking you, it will also make some more determined to get your weapon and your money. They will just ambush you hit you in back of head with something and take what they want you could even die from it. It is much better to carry concealed. You not only have to practice shooting till you can hit the mark every time but you must also practice getting it into play regularly.

      It’s more like poop.

  • This needs passed in all remaining states. The government does not place restrictions on the other nine amendments to the US Constitution and there no Constitutional reason for the government to mandate hundreds of gun laws across the county. The sole reason is government CONTROL. The government wants to control all aspects of your lives and be able to manipulate you at will. Democrats are not about wanting to help you they are about wanting to CONTROL you. They enjoy keeping low level thinking minorities happy with a welfare check and food stamps which actually condemns them to a slave life on the government plantation. Fortunately, for Democrats and other misguided “feel good” liberals most of the minorities being “kept” by the government are not bright enough to understand what is happening to them.

    My point of view every man and woman should have that right that’s the way it use too be no matter what crime you committed when you served your time and paid your does your rights on firearms was reinstated and they was no ( infringement ) then like it should be All the gun laws that’s on the books only protects the Elite rich people crooks all the elected federal government people past and present they are the only ones that all these laws do not (infringed) on there rights to own guns in order too protect there self and family and property All these so call gun laws only (infringes) on all the U S common citizens of the united states of America That our four fathers and the people fought and died fore and they wrote the constitution the bill of rights that was approved by them and all the citizens of the united states of America and just not approved only by our elected people in government It was wrote that way in order so the citizens could put a stop too a gestopoil government like the one that we have know

    Certain states like New York use exorbitant licensing fees to prevent ownership and carry privileges for their citizens. All licensing fees for pistol permits should be forthwith abolished. A one-time fingerprinting and background investigation they are no more than $100 should be charged. Just my opinion

  • Dennis B Anderson

    Ever been in a situation if you have had a gun a good person wouldnt be dead and underground and the perpetrator would be dead or unable to repeat. GOD CREATED ALL MEN, SAMUAL COLT MADE THEM EQUAL. There will always be sloth type people who will instead of work for their keep covet thy neighbors goods. If you dont know about these things or been a part of them shut your ignorant ass up. Let the informed stomp out evil where ever it may exist.

  • Robert Siskavich

    I love it.

  • The Second Amendment says what it says. It is the teeth in the First Amendment and as such, absolutely no one should interfere. I can see gun registration to a point. Some are a threat to society and themselves. But IF we overhauled mental health specifically to help people become more normal citizens we would eliminate most of those folks in a very short amount of time. Only those determined to be insane need be denied guns until after rehabilitation.

    • Daniel Wright

      People who are a danger to the public due to insanity should be locked up and treated. Unfortunately there are too many laws preventing that action in liberal states like New York, California etc.. The nuts are running the asylum in those states.

      • Daniel,
        I second that thought. Our whole mental health system needs to be overhauled. There are more changes than I can cover here in a reasonable space. What we have not learned is that the brain is just another body part that can malfunction. That does not mean it is then beyond recovery but simply malfunctioning. Then we have to learn how to fix it, not, – take a pill at night and call me in the morning – attitude.
        It also means retraining the “experts” in mental health as well.

        • Daniel Wright

          I am all for therapy but like any machine there are some brains you can’t fix. There have been cases where normal people became sociopaths or even serial killers due to brain damage. There is no chemical imbalance here, the part of the brain controlling behavior is damaged or dead.People like that are routinely put on the streets with a bottle of meds they will never take. this has to stop.

          • Daniel,
            I believe I addressed that in what I said. You are correct. The brain like any organ, can quit functioning normally. Some cannot be corrected, at least with the technology we have as of now. But the vast majority are not insane and can be helped with better understanding and treatment. We also have people on welfare in jails and shelters who are there for a lot of reasons. Some are their fault and some are not. Some are just plain lazy. We have had that kind, historically, since Jamestown in 1607. If we left those kind to their own ambitions, they would die off and nay survivors would eat them to survive until they were down to one, who would die of starvation. But many were pushed trough school at a pace faster than their ability to keep up. Some have minor brain miss functions. All these folks can be helped if they can be made to see their shortcomings. If not, they are like the lazy folks. Hopeless. still, I believe we can cut the homeless, jobless numbers in half.

          • Daniel Wright

            There are people who have irreparable brain damage ;then again there are others who are just different. I know one who hobos like it was the depression, hopping freight trains, moving from town to town. Another is a heroin addict. He likes the high. Those who are beyond present abilities of the mental health system still need to be prevented from harming the public if they are dangerous. I would hesitate to be the official who allowed this kind of person to roam the streets with a firearm.

          • Daniel,
            It is unfortunate that we have to consider some as unfit to have a firearm. But we owe ourselves the right to be free to circulate in public without them as a threat. As a die hard supporter of the Second Amendment it is tough to deny anyone that right. But we are being bombarded by the effects of these people. Most are not suffering a serious brain impairment and can be treated. That can take away the danger if the person takes the mediation regularly and that means a mandatory daily check in to get and take the medication. Most cities have multiple medical service sites where such treatment can be done in a matter of minutes.

          • Daniel Wright

            I have no qualms about allowing responsible people the access to firearms. However all you need is for someone to stop their meds and things can change very quickly. Furthermore it has been shown that nearly every school shooting was perpetrated by people who were faithfully taking their anti psychotic drugs.How can you ignore that?

          • Daniel,
            I have problems with people who are not affected like older people on some medications. Younger people often are subject to depression that offsets the drugs. We need more work done on experimental drugs. But sometimes simply a diet change can bring about positive behaviors also. One of the problems with my autism guy was a bad diet. I changed his diet and he was much more peaceful. I keep saying we need to overhaul all of the mental health program. Too many psychiatrists are in it for the money. But that is true of man regular medical doctors as well.

          • Daniel Wright

            Whatever works. I am a staunch defender of the second amendment but even the supreme court says that the rights in the constitution are not absolute. I agree with background checks to make sure career criminals and the hopelessly insane don’t have legal access to guns. However I strongly oppose a federal registry or a list of gun owners names and addresses. That could lead to confiscations,which could in turn be the first step in establishing a tyrannical government. That possibility should be avoided at all costs.

          • Daniel,
            We are on the same page when it comes to the Second Amendment. While I do recommend a total overhaul of our mental health system, any time it comes in conflict with the Second Amendment I will generally oppose it.

          • Daniel Wright

            I agree with the overhaul of mental health care. People who can’t provide for themselves due to mental health issues have been thrown to the wolves by the system. Thousands are homeless and need treatment to help them gain their mental stability. The policy is to stabilize them, give them a script and throw them back onto the mean streets. That is shameful and needs to be corrected.

          • Daniel,
            I have to agree with ou on the issue of recovering people on welfare. I detest my tax money going to someone who is laying around on their posteriors and are not tax paying members of society. If we can rehabilitate them and get at least many of them to move ahead and be tax payers instead of recipients of your tax dollars and mine I am all for it.

  • rocsteadyification .

    Sheriff Clarke from Milwaukee county made a great point the other day on Mark Levin’s show saying, in effect, “a criminal crosses state lines and his constitutional rights (1st, 4th, 5th etc) stay with him but a law-abiding citizen crosses state lines and his 2nd Amendment rights disappear…”

    SC was the 1st to secede in 1861… followed by MS… Now, after all this time, is there something to the earlier trend?… and don’t go into the screed about slavery…

    • b4k9zp

      SC also was the first state in which the Federal government actively broke the constitution, by sending naval warships into charleston harbor, the property of a sovereign state, without its permission, thereby committing an act of war agaings South Carolina. It’s no wonder that General Beauregard opened fire on the ships illegally relieving Fort Sumter, whose commander had agreed to surrender the fortress the next morning at 0800.

  • Sylvia Carpenter Kimrey

    What really irked me was a politician from Hawaii going on about the treatment of blacks here in the continental US and that police in the NYPD are bad people. What in the heck does she know about it? Hawaii is so expensive blacks who are criminally bent cannot come to Hawaii because they do not have the money to do, so she doesn’t not share our problem. However, since Hawaii has all these gun laws that would enable criminals to be able to shoot all of the population of Hawaii, maybe we should deport these people to Hawaii and clean up this part of the world.

    TO SUPPORT the 2d Amendment, look up the “Efficiency of Militia Bill” (1902), and the “Dick Act” (1909) to find the TRUE meaning of the word “militia” and the amount of guns a citizen CAN have. DO NOT ASSUME the truth, find out the FACTS.

    The Constitution stands as our right to bear arms. Any law to the contrary is unconstitutional and doesn’t have to be acknowledged. So back off, Democraps , liberal idiots, and Obamanation.

  • SheriffJon

    Congratulations to South Carolina! They have elected folks with integrity! Constitutional carry should be exactly what the Founding Fathers meant it to be, the undeniable right of every law abiding citizen who wishes to exercise it. Hats off to Nikki Haley for preserving and protecting the Constitutional rights of SCs citizens. Now if only we can get the rest of the states on board, that is, to honor their oaths of office as Governor Haley has. Their may be hope for America yet!

  • mtman2

    This should be across the board, and legally as in the 2nd-Amendment = IS already the fact of the matter ~!

  • Robert Myles

    This is precisely what the Second Amendment was written for. With the exception of being convicted felon or deemed mentally unstable all Citizen’s originally were ‘endowed’ with this God Given Right. What is a “Natural right” let no legislator or other Government official take away. The right to the pursuit of happiness and to feel safe and secure in their person their homes and their property. These are also enumerated in other Amendments in the Bill of Right’s which was written with the intent and purpose of Protecting the people from government intrusion. It would indeed be wonderful if somehow tomorrow they all woke up and said “Hey we been doing this wrong” we don’t have the right to take away their Natural right’s. I know with the liberal’s and outright Communist’s in this country that is sadly only a dream and instead we live in a Nightmare. A country founded by Geniuses and run by IDIOT’S
