Sixteen “Republicans” broke ranks and voted with Democrats this week to open the door for further erosion of our Second Amendment rights.

Last Friday, S.C. Senator Tom Davis (R-Beaufort) learned that no one had filed to run against him for the South Carolina Senate.
Seriously … no Republican, no Democrat … nobody.
