More than 100 people descended on Hunters Headquarters in Greenwood Friday afternoon to talk with South Carolina Congressman Jeff Duncan about their concerns over recent developments concerning the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.

Duncan visited several Upstate cities on Friday to hear the concerns his constituents have with the Obama administration’s proposed gun control measures in the wake of a rash of school shootings throughout the country.

Proponents of gun control say that stricter laws could have prevented tragedies such as the one that occurred in Newtown, Conn. Proponents of the 2nd Amendment say that gun control laws will only reduce the rights of law abiding citizens and not have any effect on the crimes committed using guns.

“I didn’t expect this many people,” Duncan said to the crowd gathered at Hunters Headquarters. “That just shows how important this issue is in the 3rd District and all across America. People are interested in protecting our 2nd Amendment rights.”

Duncan said that there were large crowds gathered at the previous cities he visited Friday, including stops in Greenville and Anderson, but none as large as the one in Greenwood.

“There is an assault, not to use that term wrongly like the administration is doing, but there is an assault on the 2nd Amendment here in this nation,” Duncan said. “I want you to know that I am fighting for your 2nd Amendment rights in Washington, D.C.”

Duncan drew applause several times while speaking and responding to questions from the crowd.

Duncan has become a very vocal leader in the Republican Party in Washington recently, particularly in his demand for answers from the administration regarding the incident that cost the lives of four Americans in Benghazi. He butted heads with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently, prompting one person to congratulate him for his recent questioning of the former First Lady.

“Let me say thank you for taking one Mrs. Hillary Clinton to the wood shed,” the man said, which drew loud applause from those gathered.

Duncan was asked about several other issues while speaking before making his way around the store to speak constituents individually.
