    ***** GrassRoots Action Alert - H. 3405 For SC*****

    GrassRoots sent me this email. WOW!!!!!


    January 25, 2011

    Some elected representatives are finally seeing the prohibited carry
    restrictions placed upon concealed weapon permit (CWP) holders are
    unreasonable and need to be abolished - but not for you.
    Unfortunately, the only gun related legislation moving forward in the
    SC General Assembly is a bill - H. 3405 - to make politicians more
    equal than the rest of us.

    H. 3405 would let “any other elected or appointed public official”
    - that means politicians - who possesses a CWP to carry a self-defense
    firearm */anywhere/* in the state. But, this bill will NOT allow YOU
    same freedom! H. 3405 is nothing more than a self serving bill that
    proves that politicians think their lives are more important than your
    life or the lives of your family!

    H. 3405 will allow politicians to carry in schools, restaurants that
    serve alcoholic beverages, churches, day care facilities, high school
    and college football games, publicly owned buildings, court houses and
    court rooms, private residences without permission, and even into
    posted businesses! But, H. 3405 will do NOTHING for you!

    H. 3405 is another example of how politicians seem to forget the fact
    that they are public servants, not our lords and masters. Why should
    public servants have greater privileges than you? Isn’t your life
    and your family’s life just as important as the life of a
    politician?

    GrassRoots GunRights strongly opposes H. 3405, just as we did similar
    proposed legislation last session and the session before that.

    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 believe SC citizens should be treated as their
    equals. Unfortunately, some politicians think like the pigs from
    George Orwell’s book “Animal Farm” where the ruling pigs said
    “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.”

    After the recent AZ shootings, Rep. Ron Paul wrote about the
    “growing perception that politicians view their own lives as far
    more important than the lives of ordinary citizens.” H. 3405 is a
    perfect example of why people have such a perception.

    H. 3405 needs to die in subcommittee. SC does not need another law
    granting special privileges to politicians while leaving you and your
    family at risk.

    H. 3405 will be discussed on Thursday, January 27, at 9:00 am in room
    511 of the Blatt Building in a meeting of the House Judiciary General
    Laws Subcommittee. GrassRoots GunRights leaders will be there to speak
    against the bill. If you can attend this meeting, please join us.
    There is strength in numbers, and every extra body in that room will
    help show that GrassRoots GunRights members oppose special laws for
    politicians. If politicians believe the present laws are too
    restrictive for their safety, then those present laws are too
    restrictive for our safety, too.

    Yes, the world is a dangerous place. But, the solution is to grant ALL
    citizens the right to keep and bear arms to defend themselves and
    their loved ones. The solution is NOT to give special privileges to
    politicians.

    GrassRoots GunRights has led the fight to kill similar legislation in
    the last two sessions. But, GrassRoots GunRights is only as strong as
    you make it. GrassRoots GunRights is only your voice. YOU are the
    POWER that makes politicians listen to your voice.

    Please take the following “Action Steps” ASAP and let the members
    of the subcommittee know how strongly you feel about politicians
    giving themselves special privileges while leaving you and your family
    at risk.

    *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. 3405! No special privileges
    for public officials! 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. 3405! No special privileges for
    public officials! If it's good enough for YOU, it's good enough for
    ME. GrassRoots GunRights speaks for me!
    Sincerely,

    (YOUR NAME)

    Good! I fully support GrassRoots for sticking up for the common man's equality. Maybe next time a bill comes up like this, they will include the people that put them in office.

    What's so crazy is that this was severely thrashed last year. I guess they thought the Arizona shooting would get them some sympathy.
