South Carolina lawmakers introduce bill to secede from US if guns seized

AL.com

South Carolina lawmakers have introduced a bill that would allow them to secede from the U.S. if the federal government attempts to confiscate legally purchased firearms.

Three Republican representatives introduced the bill Thursday. It would allow the state’s General Assembly to meet “to consider whether to secede from the U.S. based on the federal government’s unconstitutional violation of the Second Amendment…” if the “federal government confiscates legally purchased firearms in this state.”  

One of the bill’s sponsors, Rep. Mike Pitts, told the Hill the measure is more of an effort to shed light on Second Amendment rights as opposed to a concerted effort to leave the U.S.

“I see a lot of stuff where people even talk about totally repealing the Second Amendment, which separates us from the entire rest of the world,” Pitts said.

In 1860, South Carolina became the first state to declare that it had seceded from the Union. It joined the Confederacy in early 1861.

The issue of gun control has reemerged as a national issue after the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that claimed 17 lives. Last month, retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens added fuel to the debate when he called for he repeal of the constitutional right to bear arms as a way to combat the growing influence of the National Rifle Association.

  1. This was sent to me by a good pastor friend of mine in South Carolina. A gun lover who doesn’t like being pushed around.

  2. Wow, of all the violations by the US government of the peoples constitutional rights, this is the one violation that will push South Carolina to secede?

    1. Just what the globalist want. Break up the union so they can come in and take over. Why not pass a bill that says they won’t listen to or allow the Feds to do that in their state?

  3. 100% pure smoke and mirrors shinny object to distract people from the truth that the Communists want us dead and to do so they must disarm us. People are wide awake, well armed, and ready to kill the enemy.

  4. “South Carolina lawmakers have introduced a bill that would allow them to secede from the U.S….”

    You don’t need a piece of paper for that.

    “In 1860, South Carolina became the first state to declare that it had seceded from the Union. It joined the Confederacy in early 1861.”

    Think they wrote THAT down on paper?

    If they did, they sure as hell backed it up with bullets, not just talk.
