A group of Republican state lawmakers in South Carolina introduced a bill that would convene the state assembly to discuss secession “if the federal government confiscates legally purchased firearms in this State.”

The Hill reports:

A group of Republican state legislators in South Carolina introduced a measure Thursday that would allow the state to secede from the United States if the federal government began to seize legally purchased firearms in the state.

The bill, which was referred to the state House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, would allow South Carolina lawmakers to debate whether to secede from the United States if the federal government were to violate the Second Amendment.

It states 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, introduced by GOP Reps. Mike Pitts, Jonathon Hill and Ashley Trantham, comes amid an intense debate over the nation’s gun laws that was reignited in February after a deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Fla.

. . . . The South Carolina bill is unlikely to make it through this session. It faces an April 10 deadline to go to the state Senate for consideration.

I admire their spunk, but…

This hardly addresses, even in theory, the more pressing problem in America—when the state confiscates legally-owned weapons … and the federal government allows it to do so.

Apparently anticipating the democrats taking both houses in November, then impeaching and removing both Trump and Pence. THEN going after the guns.

Seems just a bit far-fetched.

    The idea, I think, is to illustrate how serious SC will take any attempt to fulfill the left’s fondest dream. No one imagines that door-to-door gun confiscation will happen (well, no one with a brain), but the threat to the Second Amendment is very real. SC seems to be firing a warning shot across the bow.
