    South Carolina lawmakers introduce bill to begin secession debate

    If democrats think gun owners are just going let guns be confiscated they are in for big surprise. Gun owners will fight to keep their guns and their constitutional rights.

    South Carolina debated seceding from the Union more than 150 years ago, one of the opening salvos of the Civil War. Now, the topic has come up again, amid a national debate over firearms and gun rights.
    A trio of state House Republicans on Thursday quietly introduced a bill that would allow lawmakers to debate seceding from the U.S. “if the federal government confiscates legally purchased firearms in this State.”
    Rep. Mike Pitts, the measure’s chief sponsor, acknowledged Friday in an interview with The Associated Press that the bill has no chance of passage this year but pledged to continue to raise the issue based on what he described as a defense of the Bill of Rights.
    “Without a Bill of Rights, our nation is not what it is,” Pitts said. “I see a lot of stuff where people even talk about totally repealing the Second Amendment, which separates us from the entire rest of the world.”
    Pitts, an ardent supporter of gun rights, said he had been mulling such a proposal for a while and felt it was necessary to bring the bill forward. He said he wasn’t spurred by recent comments by retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who recently wrote in an op-ed that a repeal of the Second Amendment “would be simple and would do more to weaken the N.R.A.’s ability to stymie legislative debate and block constructive gun control legislation than any other available option.”

    I hope they bring it to a vote. One more reason for embarrassed republicans to dump their fucked up party.

    There is no legal way...NO CONSTITUTIONAL way to leave the union. Leaving the Union would require a Constitutional amendment to make it constitutional [LEGAL].

    A state legislature debating secession has ZERO relevance in reality.

    In case you haven't noticed the Constitution is currently being ignored in a number of ways.

    You do realize California is talking succession too, right?

    And, last I checked California was not considered part of the south.

    You guys ignorance of any given topic is entertaining if nothing else.
