Passage of two bills (S.117 and S.125) in South Carolina would thwart virtually all federal gun control measures – past, present and future.
STATUS: Both bills have been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee, where they will need to pass by a majority vote before consideration by the state senate.
PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS – It doesn’t matter where you live in the state, please follow all these steps to support S.117 and S.125.
1. Call the Senate Judiciary Committee Chair, Larry A. Martin. Strongly, but respectfully urge him to move this important bill forward to a vote in his committee. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.
2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on S.117 and S.125. If you leave a message or get an “undecided” response, let them know you’ll call back in 2-3 days after they have time to review. Make sure to follow-up. If they say YES, be sure to thank them and, if possible, announce their committed YES vote to email and social media contacts. If they say no, politely ask them why. Get the information from them and contact us.
