SC Exercising It’s Rights?

Lo and behold, it appears that our great general assembly is looking to make sure that our state and its people retain their rights as granted by the US Constitution.  That’s right, and SC is one of 20 something states that have introduced some similar legislation stating they are against any movements that affect the peoples and states 9th and 10th amendment rights.

After speaking with Inglis today, he believes that HR 45 will pass with Pelosi’s new found power.  This is Bobby Rush’s (D-IL) bill to bar code ammunition and limit gun ownership.  According to the SC House version of the bill, this would be one situation that would force the affirmation of the resolution.  Not sure how much power it will have, but it does give you a warm fuzzy feeling…doesn’t it?

The House bill, H3509, is sponsored by the following individuals:

Reps. M.A. Pitts, Duncan, Thompson, Bowen, Toole, Stringer, Hamilton, Pinson, Bedingfield, G.R. Smith, Cooper, Crawford, Long, Lowe, Nanney, Owens, E.H. Pitts, Rice, Viers and White

Notice that none of the Spartanburg delegation is in this listing.  I encourage you to contact Millwood, Parker, Mitchell, Littlejohn, Cole, Allison, Forrester, Kelly and ask them their positions and to sign on as co-sponsors.

The Senate bill, S424, is sponsored by the following individuals:

Senators Bright, S. Martin, Alexander, Campbell, Fair, Knotts, Cromer, Mulvaney, Verdin, L. Martin, Shoopman, Rose, McConnell, Thomas, Cleary, Courson, Coleman, Davis, Reese and Campsen

Be sure to contact Lee Bright, Shane Martin, and Glenn Reese and thank them for supporting this resolution.

    Maybe SC will be first again, to Succeed!

    Handwringing and conspiracy mongering falls way short of what really needs to be done to avoid a socialist society and its attendant rules and regulations.

    I wholeheartedly applaud the forward thinking and patriotic members of our House and Senate who support this legislation. It is critical that they get all the support they need to be successful in their efforts to stave off an increasingly fascist federal government.

  • Dave

    How ironic would it be if the Feds decided to invade or occupy SC in a response to this passing?
    Maybe the outcome will be different this time…

    This means civil war but it must be done. Michigan and New Hampshire submitted similar resolutions yesterday.

    It’s “SECEDE”, silly.

    Given the current actual political climate “of the people”, perhaps this time the dismemberment of the so-called “Union”, a forced marriage that is nothing more than the fruition of Hobbes “Leviathan”, will be successful. This grand experiment early on was indeed noble, but it has evolved since the ascent of Lincoln and particularly since Woodrow Wilson into an Imperial Presidency controlled by an internationalist, finance oriented Oligarchy.

    Let the horrible creature that it has become die a well – deserved death. It should rest in ignominity deep in the dustbin of history. Let us resurrect our former ideals into a moral practice, and swiftly behead those who worship at the altar of Satan.

    Long live the free man!

    I think Oklahoma has passed legislation like this.

  • Spatacus

    Aye, States rights!! This time a civil war will be ALL the states against the District of Columbia!

  • Jeff

    Agreed Spatacus. Time to end the Federal Reserve System and take the power back that the federal government has usurped. KILL ALL FASCISTS. Also, israel is no ally to the U.S. Zionism is a racist , fascist ideology that needs to be done away with. Our tax dollars should never have been used to support those terrorists.

    If at first you don’t SECEDE,
    try, and try, and try AGAIN.

    Had enough democracy?
    How about returning to a Republic?

    We here in the deep south are ready to be free men again. We hope our northern brothers will stand beside us for this one.
    We’ll bring the grits, you supply the hash browns.

    HR45 is not the Ammunition Accountability Act. That is South Carolina Senate Bill 1259. HR 45 is absolutely awful though.

  • Paul Jansen

    I love this kind of talk, but it sounds like it is a lame resolution w/o the force of law. It would be better to follow up with a strong clause, or a strengthening clause in the SC Constitution itself. And we still need to address the issue of getting the concealed carry folks declared ‘peace officers’ so that they CAN carry into stores, restaurants, etc. and that they fully understand (as do current peace officers) the legal, moral and ethical consequences of any discharges, accidental or otherwise. . .
