Sen. Luke Rankin is Gun Owner’s Public Enemy #1

Dear fellow patriot,

“The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

As ardent supporters of the Second Amendment, you and I know that these rights are absolutely critical to a free society.

With the primary season heating up here in South Carolina, virtually all politicians are claiming they support the Second Amendment.

Yet once safely elected into office, many of the politicians in BOTH parties vote to restrict your freedoms in a “common sense” way.

Just look at Florida, where 67 NRA “A-rated” Republicans voted for draconian “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation or even our own Senator Lindsey Graham who worked with Biden and DC Democrats to pass the largest federal expansion of gun control in 30 years.

In South Carolina, anti-gun groups have offered an award of $50,000 to candidates who challenge the most conservative, pro-gun members of the State House.

And there’s plenty of establishment-class candidates who are jumping at the chance for that money.

Additionally, leftist groups are gearing up to spend 1.5 MILLION dollars to spread lies and smear the reputations of lawmakers that led the charge to strip anti-gun language out of the Constitutional Carry bill.

That’s why it’s so crucial for South Carolinians to know the truth about where their politicians stand on the Second Amendment!

To find out where your candidates truly stand, I sent them the official Palmetto Gun Rights Candidate Survey –- to get them on the record in support of your right to keep and bear arms.

And I’ve got bad news and good news for you in State Senate District 33.

The bad news is incumbent Republican State Senator Luke Rankin not only REFUSES to return his gun rights candidate survey but has proven himself to be gun owners’ public enemy #1.

Senator Luke Rankin has never passed up an opportunity to trample on the Second Amendment in South Carolina.

Senator Luke Rankin has a long-standing list of grievances against gun owners including: 

  • Refusing to return his Palmetto Gun Rights Candidate Survey and go on the record opposing Illinois-style “Assault Weapons” Bans, so-called “gun-free zones”, or unconstitutional enforcement of federal gun control laws from the Biden administration. 
  • Voting to KILL pro-gun Constitutional Carry all SIX TIMES time it came up for a vote. 
  • Wielding his power as Judiciary Chairman to pull underhanded tactics and delaying passage of Constitutional Carry well into 2024. 
  • Politically attacking Republicans on his Judiciary Committee after some of them refused to help kill Constitutional Carry. 
  • Sponsoring and pushing “Red Flag Lite” that could have permanently put gun owners on federal lists banning them from buying firearms for life[1]

Senator Luke Rankin has thumbed his nose at gun owners for far too long.

But fortunately, there’s good news in Senate District 33.

Republican State Senate Candidate Autry Benton filled out his PGR Candidate 100% pro-gun!

In returning his PGR Candidate Survey, Autry Benton went on record against California-style gun bans, which would arbitrarily ban hundreds of types of firearms based solely on cosmetic features.

Benton also pledged to support your right to legally “Stand Your Ground” and defend yourself and your family against armed thugs in the street.

Additionally, Autry Benton went on record to oppose Universal Background Checks, which would not only place an outright ban on private firearms sales but also implement a de facto gun registration scheme on South Carolina gun owners.

As you know, confiscation always follows registration.

Finally, Autry Benton pledged to support legislation repealing dangerous “Gun-Free” zones and oppose dangerous “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation laws, which allow government agents to seize legally owned firearms without a hearing or even a crime being committed!

PGR is dedicated to keeping you informed about the true positions of your elected officials and candidates.

With members and supporters across South Carolina, we are giving people across the Palmetto State a loud voice in defense of our gun rights.

And trust me, the politicians can hear you.

There is no better time to lobby them than when they are seeking your support at election time.

So, contact Luke Rankin at (803) 212-6610 and demand he reverse course and stop trampling the Second Amendment rights of South Carolina gun owners immediately.

Then contact Republican candidate Autry Benton at (843) 458-3905 and thank him for answering his survey pro-gun and for taking a stand for our Second Amendment rights.

And once you’ve contacted your candidates, please consider donating $100 to Palmetto Gun Rights right away to help us expose even more anti-gun politicians in South Carolina.

Reaching enough people to hold anti-gun politicians accountable is an expensive task, but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s worth it.

So please consider giving at least $75 or $50 right away!

I understand for some that may still be too much to ask, but even $50 or $25 would go a long way in funding the mailers, texts, emails, and hard-hitting social media campaigns needed to put anti-gun politicians on notice.

Whatever you can afford, please know that I am grateful for your commitment to the freedoms we hold so dear.

Remember, politicians of all stripes are listening closely to gun owners with the primary election just around the corner.

With our rights at stake, now is the time to take action!
