Actually after following the legislative process in SC for the past few years I tend to agree with Sen. Knotts here. I would never send a letter to someone saying that any group speaks for me, that is exactly the type of thought process the "sheeple" use for their thinking with the brady bunch. I may say that I agree with a group such as GrassRootsSC on a certain bill but I do my own thinking and I do not agree with GrassRootsSC on all items. The encouragement by GRSC to just send an email saying that they speak for you is a power grab on their part to try and convince lawmakers of their power. However that is a good move on the part of GRSC for their benefit and sometimes that of gun owners.
I also agree with Sen. Knotts that whether or not it is real there sure seems to be a ******* contest going on between GRSC and the NRA over who gets to take credit for the passage of certain legislation and has resulted in less than desired results for the people of SC. There is a big rift between the two communities of NRA and GRSC followers and from the tone of Sen. Knotts's email he recognizes it and it is not helping the citizens of SC one bit. This war between the NRA and GRSC has hurt us very much on the reciprocity bill and the school campus bills.
This latestdeal isnothing more than another ******* contest.
