- Bill: SC HB 3109 - 7% Fee on Handguns
- Position: Oppose
- Author: Rep. Brawley (D-70)
HB 3109 would mandate that a 7% fee is tacked on to all handgun sales. With no other constitutional right do we see this type of discriminatory and hamstringing fee. This bill will potentially punish low-income Carolinians by pushing the cost of handguns out of their price range. On top of this, the fee revenue goes into a “School Safety Fund” for increased law enforcement officer presence at schools. This insinuates that lawful gun owners are somehow responsible for the actions of monstrous school shooters. This is absolutely ridiculous!
