The right of the people to keep and bear arms is protected by the United States Constitution and the South Carolina Constitution; and
These constitutional protections are not just about hunting or target shooting, but were designed to protect the right to defend one's self and loved ones; and
Requiring law-abiding citizens to ask government permission through the permit system before they can exercise their constitutional right to bear arms is a clear violation of that right.
I respectfully urge you as my elected official to publicly support, co-sponsor, and vote for Constitutional Carry in South Carolina. Palmetto Gun Rights will keep me informed about your votes and actions.
