Bill Proposes S.C. Discuss Secession If Feds Confiscate Guns


A bill was proposed last week that would allow South Carolina to consider seceding from the United States if the federal government confiscates legally purchased firearms in the state.

WACH-TV reports the bill calls for the legislature to convene and discuss the idea of secession based upon the federal government's unconstitutional violation of the Second Amendment.

The legislature doesn't have the authority to make the decision to secede on its own; rather, the bill simply allows talks to take place.

State Reps. Mike Pitts, Jonathon Hill and Ashley Trantham have signed on as sponsors of the measure.

Rep. Hill tells WACH the measure is a message to Washington lawmakers, "Basically this would be a proposal, as I see it, that's designed to prevent any such scenario from happening by putting the federal government on notice by letting them know 'hey you better not go down that road because it's not going to... we're willing to stand up to that, if necessary.'"
