GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An Upstate congressman will be touring the area on Friday to talk gun rights and the Second Amendment with voters.

U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-Laurens, is making five stops in four counties Friday as a part of his "Second Amendment Listening Tour."

Duncan has opposed President Barack Obama's executive action regarding gun rights and has also encouraged America's oldest gun maker Remington Arms to relocate one of its plants from New York to South Carolina.

"If you talk to most gun owners in South Carolina, they will tell you that the Second Amendment is about more than just collection, protection and sport. The Second Amendment is ultimately about freedom," Duncan said in a release about the tour. "I'm looking forward to thanking local businesses and spending time listening to the people of the Third District."

Voters wanting to get out and listen to Duncan can attend one of his tour events on Friday, listed below.

  • 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at Allen Arms, 1210 Poinsett Hwy. in Greenville
  • 11:30 a.m. to noon at The Gun Shop, 306 E. Main St. in Walhalla.
  • 12:30 to 1 p.m. at Southern Firearms and Saddle, 109A Ram Cat Alley in Seneca.
