    *** GrassRoots Action Alert - H. 4112 ***
    March 1, 2010

    It will come as no surprise to gun owners that some politicians think they should be able to enjoy certain privileges that the rest of us mere citizens should not get.

    Well, those same politicians are at it again here in South Carolina!


    H. 4112 would let politicians in the SC General Assembly (and certain other public officials) who possess a concealed weapon permit (CWP) carry a self-defense firearm virtually anywhere in the state. But will this bill allow YOU same freedom? NO!


    Why should politicians have privileges greater than the rest of us mere mortals? H. 4112 is an example of how politicians seem to forget the fact that they are public servants, not our masters.


    GrassRoots GunRights strongly opposes H. 4112 as currently drafted. GrassRoots still believes the words “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”


    Evidently, some SC politicians do not think SC citizens should be treated as their equals.


    H. 4112 will be discussed at a meeting of the House Judiciary General Laws Subcommittee on Wednesday morning. H. 4112 needs to either be amended to provide the same carry privileges for ALL CWP holders. Otherwise, H. 4112 needs to die.


    ACTION STEPS:


    1) Call each member of the House General Laws Subcommittee and tell them the following:


    “I strongly urge you to Vote NO on H. 4112! No special privileges for politicians! If it's good enough for YOU, it's good enough for ME. GrassRoots GunRights speaks for me!”


    2) Email each member of House General Laws Subcommittee with the same message”


    “Dear Representative (INSERT NAME):


    I strongly urge you to Vote NO on H. 4112! No special privileges for politicians! If it's good enough for YOU, it's good enough for ME. GrassRoots GunRights speaks for me!

    Sincerely,

    (YOUR NAME)
    (YOUR TOWN)”
