Senate Bill 247 is sponsored by state Senators Tom Corbin, Tom Davis, Kevin Bryant, and Lee Bright. Although only four senators currently sponsor the bill, sources inside the South Carolina House of Representatives report that a companion measure will soon be offered in that chamber, as well.

The Senate bill aims to protect the right of citizens of the Palmetto State to keep and bear arms by amending the definition and rights of the state’s “unorganized militia.”

According to Section 25-1-80 of the South Carolina Code, “an able-bodied citizen of this State who is over seventeen years of age and can legally purchase a firearm is deemed a member of the South Carolina Unorganized Militia, unless he is already a member of the National Guard or the organized militia not in National Guard service.”

The newly proposed bill exempts all members of the unorganized militia (essentially everybody over 17) from complying with federal firearms restrictions passed after January 1, 2013.
