    SC: State Atty Gen tells Columbia City Gov't they are in violation of 2A & State Law

    South Carolina attorney general Alan Wilson is pushing back against efforts by municipalities in the Palmetto State to unconstitutionally infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of their citizens. Or to put it another way, Wilson is enforcing the law of the land … and in this case, the explicit laws of the Palmetto State.

    The S.C. Code of Laws (§ 23-31-510) explicitly prohibits municipalities in the Palmetto State from passing “any ordinance that regulates or attempts to regulate … the transfer, ownership, possession, carrying, or transportation of firearms, ammunition, components of firearms, or any combination of these things.”

    Wilson’s letter to Benjamin was accompanied by a pair of new opinions from his office – one responding to a request from state representative Jonathon Hill and another responding to a request from state senator Ronnie Cromer and state representative Bill Hixon. These two opinions condemn two recent gun ordinances approved by the city of Columbia – one establishing a restriction against carrying a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school and the other establishing a so-called “extreme risk” standard which would actually enable local law enforcement to seize the firearms of individuals who live within the city limits.

    The law nowadays seems to be whatever politicians deem it to be - regardless of what is on the books. You can be at risk of non compliance either way. Aint it grand!

    Wilson is alright. Really, any local law cannot supersede state anyway so this is a waste of time. Columbia does have some violence issues but it is not from the law abiding that will follow any new laws anyway. It is a ghetto problem there and the same libs that are trying to infringe upon citizen's rights are also giving out very light sentences for the same rabble that are causing the crime. They are reaping what they sow and trying to find someone to blame for their stupid ideas.

    I guess it’s good he can send a letter. But, I’d be more impressed if he led them off in handcuffs.

    North Dakota has a similar law. Fargo tried some crap a few years ago and the state came in and told them nope, your ordinance is null and void.
