South Carolina Senate Hearings For New Gun Laws

BY Herschel Smith
4 years, 2 months ago

The State:

S.C. residents will have four chances this fall to weigh in on the state’s gun laws.

A special S.C. Senate committee has scheduled public hearings on “gun issues” for Greenville, Charleston, Hartsville and Columbia. The hearings start Sept. 15.

State Sen. Gerald Malloy, D-Darlington, the committee’s chairman, said the hearings could address a variety of gun-related issues, including expanding the waiting period to buy a firearm, currently three days.

Malloy and another committee member, state Sen. Marlon Kimpson, D-Charleston, unsuccessfully pushed to lengthen that waiting period during the 2016 legislative session. They say that change would give authorities more time to investigate potential red flags found in FBI background checks.

Malloy said he expects to hear plenty from both sides – 2nd Amendment advocates as well as gun-violence victims. Any legislation that can pass the GOP-controlled Legislature must balance the right of responsible residents to own guns and the protection of society from the dangerous and mentally unstable, he said.

“We are scheduling hearings because it is a pressing issue in our society,” Malloy said. “We have a committee together that we think will be receptive of the issues of fellow South Carolinians.”

Regardless of the hearings’ testimony, Malloy said he will file bills in the upcoming legislative session to lengthen the waiting period. But testimony could influence details of those bills, such as the number of days allowed to complete a background check, he said.

In addition to Malloy and Kimpson, Republican state Sens. Chip Campsen of Charleston, Greg Gregory of Lancaster and Greg Hembree of Horry County are on the five-member committee.

Oh, there is a never ending stream of chances to do nefarious things to the rights and liberties of the people.  “Receptive to the issues of fellow South Carolinians” is shorthand for we want a bilateral committee to infringe on the free exercise of rights in the name of cooperation and collegiality.

Resist this temptation, folks.  Just don’t do it.  There shouldn’t be any more gun control laws.  No one elected you to infringe on their God-given rights and liberties, no matter what you were taught by your Marxist college professors.  Don’t try to be the family, church and state all wrapped up into one totem like Molech.  You cannot solve problems of morality by laws.  The state doesn’t have salvific powers.

But here is one bill we need to see come from your pens, as a committee, or individually, or from the pens of someone else in the Senate or House.  We need to see a bill legalizing open carry in South Carolina, like the vast majority of other states.  Reject that awful, racist, communist, Jim Crow legacy and finally bring South Carolina into the twenty first century.

    Well, OK; nothing against open carry, as long as it’s Constitutional Open Carry. But…..I’ll challenge your assertion that necessary SC CWP law changes begin and end with open carry.

    Currently, SC CWP laws establish far too many Gun Free Zones: all public buildings, all medical facilities, all schools. I do not know any individuals, in any state, with or without a CWP, who are different people on different sides of a doorway, nor am I aware of any Constitutional provision that calls for abrogation of rights between publicly accessible areas separated by a door.

    I have a long history of advocating open carry for South Carolinians. We can walk and chew gum at the same time. One is not exclusive of the other, and yes, there are other needs as well. But open carry is a sore spot that needs to be remedied. And yes, it does need to be constitutional carry, not permitted open carry.

    South Carolinians don’t have open carry because they haven’t demanded it loudly enough yet and with enough force. One step at a time sir, one step at a time.

    And on that note, I will also observe that the South Carolina state senators don’t have published email addressed to which you can send this link. It’s an e-form. Because they are cowards.

    As a South Carolina native and resident, and southern nationalist, I thank you for bringing this to my attention, Mr. Smith.

    Chimpson, I mean Kimpson, is constantly attempting to reduce access to self defense because his constituency is black gangsters and he views gun confiscation as a method of disarming those his constituents view as prey. Marxist central in Charleston, that African, Methodist, Episcopal, Zionist Church; is in Kimpson’s district, and he’s the son of a Marxist activist from the 1960s.

    If anyone cares to do so, they may take a look at where the Democrat/Marxists are elected in South Carolina. They are clustered around University towns and cities, in Black dominated areas, or both. They can’t get elected any place else.

    Yes, folks, Gun Confiscation bills in South Carolina carry a huge amount of anti-white racism.

    “…balance the right of responsible residents to own guns and the protection of society…”

    @UNCLEELMO:disqus beat me to it. I’ll add that I don’t want to be protected, at gun point, for my own good, under color of law, against my will, or else. This has been going on for decades. While we are winning in 90 percent of the states at the state level SC IS getting it’s butt whooped.

    Supposedly, SC has more Christians per capita than any state. Who is teaching these, so called Christians, the rights of free men under God. SC is full of pussy fudds and fake christians.

    STAND UP AND FIGHT!

    I would remind everyone that you can start by sending this link to your representatives and senators, with a warning. My article on Larry Martin comes up on the first page of a Google search on his name, the second link down, if I’m not mistaken.

    Larry Martin is no longer in office. We effectively ended his political career. We can do it to any other politician we want. Remind them of that. They serve the people, not vice versa.
