“In light of the recent tragedies, anti-gun groups have been howling for politicians at every level to do something,” state representative Jonathon Hill, the lead signer of the letter, said in a statement. “There is a dangerous belief that more gun laws, such as due process shredding Red Flag laws, will protect individuals. The simple truth is anti-gun laws do not protect people. If lawmakers want to decrease these tragedies passing Constitutional Carry and eliminating so-called ‘gun free zones’ would go a long way.”
Hill ultimately addressed his suspension via social media, claiming it was the result of “pressure” lawmakers are facing to pass his bill expanding gun rights in the Palmetto State (H.3456).
State representative Jonathon Hill is leading the fight to get the McMaster proviso defunding Planned Parenthood inserted into the House budget.
