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.
