Modeled after similar organizations in other states, GrassRoots South
Carolina is a South Carolina 501(c)4 Corporation. The primary goals of GrassRoots GunRights
are to keep our membership up to date on firearms and CWP issues, and to keep
our membership aware of legislative issues of concern to law-abiding firearms owners in
The mission of GrassRoots is to educate and promote acceptance of responsible firearms ownership within the
State of South Carolina and to protect the rights of law abiding citizens with regard to firearms ownership. Initially we focused
all of our attention on merchants who posted against the lawful carrying of concealed weapons in their stores. Since then we
have broadened our scope and are currently increasing information delivery to all firearms owners, SC concealed weapons
permit holders, and firearms instructors. As GrassRoots continues to grow we will further broaden our objectives to improve
all aspects of lawful ownership and carrying of firearms in South Carolina.
GrassRoots has learned that making positive change with merchants, communities, and others is greatly
improved when the resources of many are combined. By having increased numbers of educated individuals in each community,
the efforts of GrassRoots are multiplied many times over.
GrassRoots keeps the public informed on gun-related issues in multiple ways: 1) through this website; 2) using our newspaper
"The Defender"; 3) using the SCFirearms discussion group on Yahoo! Groups; and 4) concealed weapons classes; to publicly
to outline our goals. The idea is to make this a true grass roots effort in organization from our end as well as the public's.
This website is available for public browsing. It includes legislative updates, a Second Amendment Library,
and information on how to support GrassRoots as well as a listing of those merchants who post against concealed weapons
