CHARLESTON, SC – Some South Carolina state representatives are voicing their support for a bill to close the so-called ‘Charleston loophole.’
On Thursday, Rep. Joe Cunningham and Jim Clyburn held a press conference inside of Emmanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston.
The official name of the bill is the “Enhance Background Check Act of 2019.”
The bill calls for the extension of federal background checks in order to buy a gun from three days to 10 days.
The current three-day check system is the reason convicted church shooter, Dylann Roof was able to buy the gun he used to kill nine people inside the church in 2015.
