South Carolina Anti-Gun Protest Of Nine Makes The News

posted on January 31, 2017

The Horry County Democratic Party’s Gun Sense Committee protested a gun show going on in Myrtle Beach, S.C., on Sunday. “It’s easy to get any kind of gun you want,” declared Rosemary Wolfe, a member of the South Carolina club. “You can get a discount on assault rifles today.”

Apparently neither Wolfe nor any of the other eight protesters were aware that gun show transactions are not exempt from any of the laws applying to gun sales. Meaning that in order to purchase a firearm from a federal firearms licensee—wherever the location—the buyer must undergo a federal background check.  

Perhaps instead of protesting from across the street and citing the tired old gun control “loophole” rhetoric, the small handful of Gun Sense members should have taken the initiative to walk across the street and check it out for themselves. That’s where the real “gun sense” was being demonstrated.
