    Thumbs down No more 2A tax holiday!

    I must have missed this one. It looks like the South Carolina Supreme Court struck down the state's gun sales tax holiday last May.

    Court kills South Carolina's gun sales tax holiday

    With one brief stroke of the pen, the South Carolina Supreme Court struck down the state's gun sales tax holiday that citizens have enjoyed since 2008 during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
    And the ruling was based upon a technicality.
    In the past, the Court would simply delete unconstitutional or unacceptable issues unrelated to the subject of the bill, and then rule in favor of the main text of the legislation.
    However, the Court decided to change its rules during this session. Under the new rule, if a bill is submitted with unrelated, unconstitutional issues attached, the Court will simply strike down the entire bill rather than striking down only the part that is unconstitutional.
    As expected, the ruling has the bill's sponsors and the citizens up in arms.
    We need to call our reps and tell them to pass another bill!

    Yes, and legislation has been prepared to correct the technicality. Should be filed in the upcoming session. Doesn't appear that it will face any more opposition than the original bill did - which was practically non-existent.
