Chardale Murray voted AGAINST your gun rights!
We’re facing an attack on multiple fronts.
Leftist radicals have their sights trained on our Second Amendment rights in South Carolina and we must shore up our defenses.
And with South Carolina being rated the most liberal Republican held legislature for 2 years in a row, there’s no better reason to kick our efforts into overdrive during this election season.
That’s why it’s critical we identify politicians who will take a bold, public stance in support of the Second Amendment.
And that’s why I sent the official Palmetto Gun Rights Candidate Survey to every politician running for State House and Senate — to get them on the record in support of your right to keep and bear arms.
I have some good news and bad news for House District 116.
The bad news is Democrat State Representative Chardale Murray REFUSES to return her Palmetto Gun Rights Candidate Survey and go on the record for your gun rights!
This is not surprising considering Chardale Murray voted TWICE to kill commonsense Constitutional Carry legislation!
Constitutional Carry is the simple concept that would allow law-abiding citizens to carry a handgun for self-defense — without paying a tax and begging the government for permission.
Murray voted for the gun control status quo that allows a woman who chooses to carry a gun to defend herself against armed thugs and rapists to be fined $1000 and thrown in jail for up to a year if she doesn’t jump through the bureaucratic hoops!
And by refusing to return her Palmetto Gun Rights Candidate Survey, Chardale Murray refuses to go on the record opposing California-style gun bans that would outlaw hundreds of types of firearms based solely on cosmetic features.
This would ban firearms for hunting. Firearms for home defense. Firearms for sport shooting — simply because they look “scary.”
Murray also refuses to go on record supporting your right to defend yourself against criminals seeking to cause you bodily harm in any place you have a right to be.
When politicians refuse to take a stand in support of the Second Amendment, you can be almost certain that the rest of your constitutional rights aren’t high on their list of priorities either.
But there is also good news for House District 116.
Republican candidate Matt Leber answered his Palmetto Gun Rights Candidate Survey 100% pro-gun!
By returning his survey, Leber pledged to support legislation repealing “Gun-Free” zones, better known as “Criminal-Safe” zones.
As every gun owner knows, these dangerous laws only disarm law-abiding citizens while letting criminals know that their victims will be disarmed in these areas.
Matt Leber also pledged to support our state’s preemption law that prevents local municipalities from passing their local gun control.
Preemption laws protect gun owners from being entrapped in a web of confusing gun laws and regulations from town to town, making it almost impossible to legally own or carry a firearm.
Finally, Matt Leber pledged to oppose “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation laws, which would allow government agents to seize legally-owned firearms without a hearing or even a crime being committed!
In the wake of civil unrest across the country, and with law enforcement resources already stretched thin, it is clear that private citizens need access to firearms for self-protection.
We must make it clear that we expect elected officials and candidates to not only oppose new gun control measures but also to go to Columbia to be a leader in the fight for the Second Amendment.
That’s why Palmetto Gun Rights is dedicated to keeping you informed about the true positions of your elected officials and candidates.
With members and supporters across South Carolina, we are giving people across the Palmetto State a loud voice in defense of our gun rights.
And trust me, the politicians can hear you.
There is no better time to lobby them than when they are seeking your support at election time.
So please contact Democrat State Representative Chardale Murray at (843) 532-3657 and insist she reverse course and fully support the Second Amendment.
Then contact Republican Matt Leber at 843-227-1331 and thank him for answering his survey pro-gun and for taking a stand for our Second Amendment rights. Urge him to continue.
And once you’ve contacted your candidates, please consider donating $100 to Palmetto Gun Rights right away to help us continue fighting for the Second Amendment in South Carolina.
Reaching enough people to pressure politicians to support the Second Amendment is an expensive task, but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s worth it.
So please consider giving at least $75 or $50 right away!
I understand for some that may still be too much to ask, but even $25 would go a long way in helping us in the fight for your Second Amendment rights.
Whatever you can afford, know that I am grateful for your commitment to preserving our liberties for future generations.
Remember, politicians of all stripes are listening closely to gun owners with the election just around the corner.
With our rights at stake, now is the time to take action!
