On Thursday, a group of South Carolina Republicans introduced a bill that would let state lawmakers debate secession from the United States if the federal government confiscates guns purchased in South Carolina, CBS News reported.
According to CBS:
The bill provides that “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.”
The measure sponsored by Reps. Mike Pitts, Jonathon Hill and Ashley Trantham has no real chance this session. The deadline for bills to move from one chamber to the other is April 10.
In 1860, South Carolina became the first state to declare that it had seceded from the Union.
“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.
“See ya!” Angela Helm wrote at the left-wing Root, falsely claiming that “black people of S.C. had better beware if it happens.”
As Pitts noted, a number of anti-gun leftists — including the chairwoman of the Louisiana Democrat Party — have suggested repealing the Second Amendment, even as the liberal media tells us that no one wants to repeal the Second Amendment.
According to The Hill, the measure was referred to the state House Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
