A group of Republican state legislators in South Carolina introduced a measure Thursday that would allow the state to secede from the United States if the federal government began to seize legally purchased firearms in the state.

The bill, which was referred to the state House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, would allow South Carolina lawmakers to debate whether to secede from the United States if the federal government were to violate the Second Amendment.

It states that "the general assembly shall convene to consider whether to secede from the United States based upon the federal government's unconstitutional violation of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution if the federal government confiscates legally purchased firearms in this state."

The measure, introduced by GOP Reps. Mike Pitts, Jonathon Hill and Ashley Trantham, comes amid an intense debate over the nation's gun laws that was reignited in February after a deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Fla.
Since then, anti-gun violence advocates have stepped up demands for new gun control laws, calling for prohibitions on assault-style weapons and stronger background checks for gun buyers, among other measures.

The South Carolina bill is unlikely to make it through this session. It faces an April 10 deadline to go to the state Senate for consideration.

South Carolina became the first state to secede from the Union in the lead up to the Civil War, withdrawing in 1860.

They don't remember what happened to South Carolina the last time they succeeded?
After Sherman captured Savannah, Georgia, the culmination of his march to the sea, he marched his army north through the Carolinas, destroying everything of military value along the way. Sherman was particularly interested in targeting South Carolina, the first state to secede from the Union, for the effect it would have on Southern morale and to punish what he considered the traitors who started this rebellion.

Sherman's Carolina Campaign, in which his troops marched 425 miles (684 km) in 50 days, was similar to his march to the sea through Georgia, although physically more demanding because of marching through swamps in the winter rainy season by cutting down trees to make "corduroy roads" at a dozen miles a day. The primary Confederate force in the Carolinas was the battered Army of Tennessee, again under the command of General Joseph E. Johnston (who had been relieved of duty by Confederate President Jefferson Davis during the Atlanta Campaign against Sherman). Sherman's forces smashed Gen. Joseph E. Johnston's army at the Battle of Bentonville in March, 1865, forcing its surrender in April that represented the loss of the final major army of the Confederacy.

>[Sherman] marched his army north through the Carolinas, destroying everything of military value along the way.
Oh, and a great deal more of no military value as well.
The object was to plunder every home and farm for food to feed his giant army and to destroy those places to make their former residents refugees, dependent on the Confederate government who could not aid these people at all. It was a campaign of real vandalism and revenge, bringing home to these people the consequences of Fort Sumter, in Charleston, South Carolina, April 1861.

>thinking this would be the same as the last civil war

Dude, that would start a chain reaction of states kicking away along with likely mass defections from the military.

You mean exactly like the first Civil War?

Yeah that's why after the first one American servicemen now swear an oath to protect the Union from enemies foreign and domestic.
