As Americans, we are born with the natural right to protect our loved ones, and ourselves from harm. The Constitution of America wasn’t written for “We the people,” it was written to limit government power. As Americans, and citizens of these Untied States, and the state of South Carolina it is our fundamental rights being attacked day in and day out.

Greenwood County 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Resolution. 

WHEREAS, our Declaration of Independence is the Fundamental Act of our Founding and part of the Organic Law of our Land and recognizes that our Rights come from the Creator God; and that among these Rights is the Right of self-defense; and
