Rep. Randy Ligon Voted Against Your Gun Rights
“The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
As ardent supporters of the Second Amendment, you and I know that these rights are absolutely critical to a free society.
With the primary season heating up here in South Carolina, virtually all politicians are claiming they support the Second Amendment.
Yet once safely elected into office, many politicians in BOTH parties vote to restrict your freedoms in a “common sense” way.
In South Carolina, establishment Republican legislators in Columbia continue to stonewall Constitutional Carry despite the overwhelming popularity of this vital pro-gun legislation.
That’s why it’s so crucial for South Carolinians to know where their politicians stand on the Second Amendment BEFORE they get into office!
To find out where your candidates stand, I sent them the official Palmetto Gun Rights Candidate Survey –- to get them on the record in support of your right to keep and bear arms.
And I’ve got bad news and good news for you in State House District 43.
Incumbent State Representative Randy Ligon is REFUSING to return his Palmetto Gun Rights Candidate Survey.
This comes as no surprise as Ligon has an abysmal record of standing up for your gun rights in the South Carolina State House.
Just last year, Randy Ligon voted TWICE to KILL pro-gun Constitutional Carry legislation.
The one time Ligon did vote for Constitutional Carry, it was due to extreme pressure from angry gun owners in his district.
So it’s no surprise that he’s refusing to return his Palmetto Gun Rights Candidate Survey.
By not returning his survey, Rep. Randy Ligon is refusing to go on record against California-style gun bans, which would arbitrarily ban hundreds of types of firearms based solely on cosmetic features.
Ligon is also refusing to go on record in support of your right to legally “Stand Your Ground” and defend yourself and your family against armed thugs in the street.
We’ve seen it time and again. When candidates for office try to keep their stance on the Second Amendment secret, it’s usually a very telling sign that they’re up to no good.
It appears Randy Ligon is doing just that by dodging our survey and refusing to stand up for your constitutional rights.
And when politicians refuse to take a stand on guns, you can be certain that the rest of your constitutional rights are not on their list of priorities either.
But there is good news in House District 43. Candidate Mark Corral answered his Palmetto Gun Rights Candidate Survey 100% pro-gun!
By returning his survey, Mark Corral pledged his support for solid pro-gun 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.
With Constitutional Carry, if you are legally able to possess a handgun, you are legally able to carry it, openly or concealed.
Twenty-five other states already have Constitutional Carry, with NINE of those states passing it since South Carolina went into session just last year!
Corral also pledged to support legislation repealing dangerous “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.
Finally, Corral pledged to oppose dangerous “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation laws, which allow government agents to seize legally owned firearms without a hearing or even a crime being committed!
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 Randy Ligon at (803) 212-6972 and insist he return his Palmetto Gun Rights Candidate Survey and start standing up for the Second Amendment.
Don’t forget to contact Mark Corral at (803) 238-0420 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 expose even more anti-gun politicians in South Carolina.
Reaching enough people to hold anti-gun politicians accountable 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 $50 or $25 would go a long way in helping us in the fight for your Second Amendment rights.
Whatever you can afford, please 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 primary election just around the corner.
With our rights at stake, now is the time to take action!
