    *** URGENT GrassRoots Action Alert ***

    H. 3212 NEEDS YOUR IMMEDIATE HELP!
    12 March 2008

    If you want to be able to lawfully carry a concealed weapon in 30+
    states, contact each Senator from your county NOW and let them know
    you want H, 3212 to pass without amendments! This bill could be
    debated in the Senate as early as tomorrow morning at 11:00am, or it
    might get delayed until next week. Either way, you need to start
    calling and emailing the senators from your county ASAP!

    H. 3212 is the CWP Recognition bill sponsored by Rep. Mike Pitts. In
    June 2007, H. 3212 was put on the Contested Calendar when Sen. Ralph
    Anderson placed a Minority Report on the bill as it passed out of the
    Senate Judiciary Committee.

    On Wednesday, March 6, 2008, GrassRoots leaders met with Sen. Larry
    Martin, Chairman of the Senate Rules Committee to seek his help in
    getting H. 3212 onto the Special Order calendar. Sen. Martin promised
    GrassRoots leaders he would help.

    Today, thanks to Sen. Martin's efforts, H. 3212 was put onto the
    Special Order calendar. This means H. 3212 could come up for debate as
    early as tomorrow morning.

    Contact every State Senator who represents your county NOW and tell
    them you want H. 3212 to pass the Senate immediately, without ANY
    amendments!

    If you do not make these calls - and make them NOW - H. 3212 could die
    or be amended to make it totally worthless.

    Action Steps:

    1) *** CALL 803-212-6200 and ask to speak with your Senators. *** Tell
    them to support H.3212 with no amendments. Be sure to tell them
    "GrassRoots GunRights speaks for me!"

    2) *** EMAIL all Senators representing your county. For your
    convenience, we have provided a list of Senators sorted by county
    below. ***

    3) Forward this email to your friends immediately and ask them to do
    the same!

    Once you have completed the three "Action Steps" above, sit back and
    congratulate yourself. You have done your part to fight for the gun
    rights of all South Carolinians! Please accept my personal thanks for
    your activism, and a job well done!

    PS - Don't let these politicians think you have forgotten about H.
    3212. Please call and email the senators representing your county
    every day until you hear that H. 3212 has passed. GrassRoots GunRights
    will let you know as soon as any action is taken on H. 3212. The time
    to act is now!

    I am glad to see the movement on this. I had emailed the head of the rules committee this past week and he had responded to expect some action soon .. this is sooner than i expected.

    I listened to the Senate live today. They have further amended the amendment to make it so only states with a required fingerprint check will meet the standard. I think this removes Virginia.


    then instead of voting on the bill as a whole, they carried the whole thing over; someone who I think had been opposed to the bill seems to be the one who did it.
