    *** Action Alert - H. 3292 ***

    February 9, 2011

    H. 3292 - if amended as GrassRoots proposes - could be the most important pro gun bill this legislative session!

    H. 3292 could - if properly amended - resolve many gun rights issues in just one bill.

    Gun owners can - and should - push hard to get H. 3292 amended, and then enacted into law. Why fight many small wars when we could - and can - get it all with one big war.

    After you read the GrassRoots analysis of H. 3292, you will understand just how important H. 3292 is to you, if it is properly amended.

    Click here (http://www.scfirearms.org/Legislativ...2_analysis.pdf) to read the "GrassRoots GunRights Analysis of H. 3292 with Proposed Amendments" posted on our website. Yes, it is long and detailed. But, something as important as how H. 3292 could impact your gun rights needs to be accurate and thorough. Unless you understand exactly what H. 3292 does and does not do, you can not know just how important it is that H. 3292 be amended as GrassRoots proposes, and then enacted into law. Anything less thorough would require you to have faith in, but not knowledge of, what is truly contained in H. 3292.

    After you read the GrassRoots analysis of H. 3292, you will understand how important it is for you - and everyone else you can enlist to join us - to print out and mail in those post cards without delay. Click here (http://www.scfirearms.org/postcard/WhyPostCards.html) to read why postcards are so important.

    H. 3292 could come before the House General Laws subcommittee as early as Thursday, Feb 17. We - you, me, and everyone else we can get to join us - must start doing all we can to get H. 3292 amended and enacted into law.

    It is time to use the card stock and stamps GrassRoots recently asked you to purchase to get your voice heard in support of H. 3292! If you have not yet purchased the card stock and postage, please do so quickly. We have heard that some stores have sold out of the orange card stock. If you can not get orange, then get whatever color you can get. It is more important that you send the postcards now rather than miss out because you could not find orange. See Action Steps below.

    It is time to make phone calls to our elected representatives in support of H. 3292!

    It is time to send emails to our elected representatives in support of H. 3292!

    GrassRoots has created a document with eight post cards addressed to the five members of the House General Laws subcommittee and to the three principal sponsors of H. 3292.

    ACTION STEPS TO TAKE NOW:

    1. Download and print out the post cards. Click here (http://scfirearms.org/postcard/H3292postcardsv3.pdf) to download the post card file. (Click here http://www.scfirearms.org/postcard/P...tructions.html you need instructions for printing the post cards.)

    2. Cut the card stock into four post cards.

    3. Sign the bottom of the message side of each post card.

    4. Write your return address in the upper left corner of the address side of each card.

    5. Put at least a 28 cent stamp on each post card and mail them.

    6. CALL and email each member of the House General Laws subcommittee and tell them "GrassRoots GunRights Speaks for Me!" Then, call the three principal sponsors of H. 3292 and tell them the same thing.

    Members of the SC House General Laws Subcommittee:

    Rep. Thad Viers
    (803) 734-3064
    ThadViers@schouse.gov

    Rep. Dan Hamilton
    (803) 212-6795
    DanHamilton@schouse.gov

    Rep. George Hearn
    (803) 212-6796
    GeorgeHearn@schouse.gov

    Rep. Laurie Funderburk
    (803) 734-3044
    LaurieFunderburk@schouse.gov

    Rep.David Weeks
    (803) 734-3102
    DavidWeeks@schouse.gov

    The three principal sponsors of H. 3292:

    Rep. Mike Pitts
    (803) 734-2830
    MikePitts@schouse.gov

    Rep. Dan Cooper
    (803) 734-3144
    DanCooper@schouse.gov

    Rep. Greg Delleney
    (803) 734-3074
    GregDelleney@schouse.gov

    If you are unable to reach any of these Representatives at their individual office numbers listed above, call the House Judiciary Committee (803) 734-3120 and ask to be transferred.

    Once you have done this, you should also send post cards to every House member in the county in which you live. GrassRoots has created a separate document for each county with post cards for each House member. Click here (http://www.scfirearms.org/postcard/P...legations.html) and download the post cards for your county House members and follow the same Action Steps as 1 through 5 above. Give any extra postcards to your friends and neighbors to send in.

    The politicians MUST hear what good, law-abiding gun owners like YOU think about H. 3292, and they need to hear it NOW!

    Gun owners have the power to win. The question is whether gun owners have the will to win. If gun owners work together and follow the Action Steps above, we can get H. 3292 amended and enacted into law.

    Thank you for taking immediate action on this very important gun rights issue!

    *** GrassRoots Gorillas CALL TO ACTION! ***

    The GrassRoots Gorillas who answer this call can be the deciding factor which convinces the politicians to make some long sought after improvements to SC gun laws.

    The House Judiciary General Laws subcommittee has scheduled a meeting on Thursday February 17, 2011 at 9am in room 516 of the Blatt building to discuss H. 3292.

    GrassRoots needs as many gun rights supporters as possible to attend this meeting.

    H. 3292 is a very important bill which - if amended properly - could change SC gun laws for the better in a number of ways (open carry, restaurant carry, prohibit employers from banning guns in stored employee's vehicle, etc.) GrassRoots has proposed amendments to fix the problems with H. 3292.

    If you have not already read the GrassRoots analysis of H. 3292 please read it at
    http://www.scfirearms.org/Legislative/H3292_analysis.pdf

    If this meeting is packed full of GrassRoots Gorillas, it just might convince the members of the subcommittee to adopt the GrassRoots proposed amendments to H. 3292 and recommend the bill for passage.

    Gorillas should meet on Thursday February 17, 2011 no later than 8:45am near the statue of Strom Thurmond on the statehouse grounds. Contact me with any questions.

    Good luck. I'm in NC, but have family in SC, and would love to see the change.

    Verdict?

    What happened. For as something as sweeping as this bill, if I lived in South Carolina I would definitely be in that committee room.

    Per Grass Roots South Carolina

    February 17, 2011:

    The House Judiciary General Laws subcommittee met at 9am to hear public comment on H. 3292. GrassRoots GunRights leaders and members attended and spoke in support of the GrassRoots proposed amendments to H. 3292. The subcommittee voted to adjourn debate on H. 3292 to allow lawmakers more time to draft (with the help of GrassRoots and others) language for a single amendment to address all the the problems with H. 3292.

    Thumbs up Keep Pushing!

    I would love to see this passed in SC. In addition to the fact that I spend a fair amount of time there, it would also make the possibility a little bit easier for NC, IMO.

    This is a deeply flawed bill. Yes, it is well intended, but poorly worded and invokes the law of unintended consequences. With a lot of work, it could be a great step forward for SC. Now, it is at best problematic, at worst, an unconstitutional step backwards. Let's hope they get it right.
