Well, it looks like there is at least one state that takes their 2nd Amendment rights seriously and they have no intention of being part of a federal government that tries to take their guns.
To demonstrate their sincerity South Carolina Republican lawmakers have introduced a Bill that would permit the State to secede from the United States if the federal government violates the 2nd Amendment.
The South Carolina State House Judiciary Committee received the referral on April 05, 2018 that would give the State the option to secede from the United States if the federal government began confiscating firearms that were legally purchased.
The Bill specifically states:
“Notwithstanding another provision of law, the General Assembly shall convene to consider whether to secede from the United States based upon the federal government’s unconstitutional violation of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, if the federal government confiscates legally purchased firearms in this state.”
Those of us that were taught American history might recall that South Carolina was the first state to secede from the Union in 1860 leading up to the Civil War.
Few Americans today would support the cause South Carolina was standing up against in 1860, but the federal government had better take notice because most Americans WILL support a stance against those against the Second Amendment and any effort to confiscate our weapons could escalate things in a hurry.
The Republican Representatives in South Carolina responsible for introducing this pro-Second Amendment legislation are Mike Pitts, Ashley Trantham, and Jonathon Hill.
Hopefully, we are on solid ground at the moment with President Trump in the White House and the Republicans controlling the Congress and Senate, but the liberals have been pushing their anti-gun agenda hard and if they ever gain control again, we could have a difficult situation confronting us.
Stay alert, stay involved, and know who you can depend on in your area in case things ever turn bad.
