South Carolina Senator Shane Martin Receives National Association for Gun Rights Award

Apr 25, 2022

Columbia, SC – National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) President Dudley Brown, along with state affiliate Palmetto Gun Rights (PGR), awarded Senator Shane Martin the .50 Caliber Freedom Award for his staunch defense of the Second Amendment.

“During his service in the legislature, Senator Martin has always been a stalwart defender of the Second Amendment,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “We’re thankful for his continued willingness and drive to repeatedly go to bat for South Carolina gun owners.”

The .50 Caliber Freedom award is only given to the most staunch and resilient defenders of the Second Amendment. Senator Martin joins Rep. Jonathon Hill as the only two South Carolina lawmakers to receive the award.

“Passing Constitutional Carry and repealing gun control remain Palmetto Gun Rights’ top goals in South Carolina, and we are proud of the job Senator Shane Martin has done to put legislators on record and offer crucial support to move Constitutional Carry forward,” said Tommy Dimsdale, Legislative Director of Palmetto Gun Rights.

During the acceptance speech Senator Martin alluded to the fact that Constitutional Carry had not yet passed the Senate. However, he explained something his grandmother had told him when he was first elected to the Senate from the book of Ezekiel. “God calls us to be faithful, not successful.” Senator Martin explained, “by being faithful to the cause of Constitutional Carry, forcing roll call votes, forcing bills out of committee, and forcing votes on amendments on the floor for Constitutional Carry, we’ve moved the ball forward.”

Both the National Association for Gun Rights and Palmetto Gun Rights stand firmly behind Senator Shane Martin’s bold efforts and will continue to fight for Constitutional Carry until it is the law of the land in South Carolina.

The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
