There are some governors who support rigid gun control. But Nikki Haley is certainly NOT one of them. In fact, when it comes to gun control, Governor Haley has stated:
“Few things are as clearly defined as the right of individual Americans to own and use firearms. The right to bear arms was deemed so critical by our Founders that they spelled it out in absolute terms, and any governmental action that undermines that right is in turn undermining the very freedoms that built our great nation.
As governor, I will continue to fight against any government infringement on the 2nd Amendment.”
Haley also said she wants to make concealed weapons permits easier to obtain. She explained, “I hold a Concealed Weapons Permit myself, and in this state makes it difficult for CWP holders to rightfully carry–we need to make the rules that govern carrying far more simple.”
Governor Haley recently enjoyed visiting FN Manufacturing in Columbia, SC. FN Manufacturing makes small arms, specializing in military and law enforcement weapons. Here’s a video of her tour:
For the SC governor, the visit was rather personal because her husband Michael (currently serving in Afghanistan) and his unit are equipped with M4s, M240s, and M249s — firearms made right here in South Carolina!
Governor Haley said, “The fact that we have a lot of different manufacturers looking at South Carolina whether they are gun-related or not–continues to speak highly for our state.”
South Carolina’s first female governor also admitted to firing quite a few weapons while visiting FN Manufacturing. And she even admitted to firing them while wearing heels…
Governor Haley would certainly fit right in at PolitiChicks.tv, wouldn’t she?
