I don’t normally get involved in Federal issues, but while I’m fighting to protect your right to carry in South Carolina, Senator Lindsay Graham is undermining our efforts by pushing for a national “red flag” law.
The events of the last 48 hours are an amazing story that demonstrates the power of God “over the affairs of men” and validates the effectiveness we can have when we embrace the power of confrontation in politics.
Failure to pass Constitutional Carry may send the signal gun rights are up for grabs in South Carolina, at the precise moment when other states are passing “red flag” laws.
Sometimes, passing strong pro-gun legislation means breaking the rules and defying the conventional wisdom.
When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Hill said he does not believe that protective orders will stop deadly shootings from happening. "No matter how many laws we have in place, somebody bad is going to get their hands on a gun and do something bad with it," he said. "I don't think we can prevent any and every mass shooting without also depriving everyone the ability to defend themselves."
“Red flag gun confiscation schemes…are egregious violations of the right to self-defense and the right to due process,” Hill said in a news release. “Senator Graham is advancing legislation that represents an un-American departure from the idea that you are ‘innocent until proven guilty.’”
The House and Senate each want $250,000 more in their respective chamber budgets for “other operating expenses” next fiscal year. As the full House debated the proposed, approximately $30 billion state budget last week, Rep. Jonathon Hill, R-Anderson, introduced separate amendments to reject the requested increases.
