Glad to see that governor has balls, unlike the guy here in NH who vetoed a similar bill.

Ours never got to the Governor -- Legislature couldn't seem to get it moving.

Congrats to SC! Another state with the wisdom to see the "light" and allow the basic right of self defense. May this become a trend.......

Good move for South Carolina !
Wonder why we haven't heard anything about something like this in Texas yet ?

Glad he signed it. Also glad Sanford signed Jessie's Law, which opens up the option for the death penatly for some child molesters.

This is good. My dad lives in SC and, unfortunately, has some questionanble neighbors. This ought to make him feel a little better. Thanks for the update.
