    I really hope this goes through. I was station in Charleston from 1990 to 1994 while in the Navy. We'd love to go back for a visit and if this passes, that would make it all the more likely that we would come to SC and spend our $$ there. As it is now, it's not likely that we will visit.

    Sure would like to see the only neighborhood though. And see what Charleston has done with the old Navy Base.

    Lets get something done this year!!!! I am excited.
    We need to be more vocal than them. It certainly worked on the elected officials carry bill.

    There's an important caveat though. When you intervene to protect someone else from "death or great bodily injury", you are standing in their shoes and can assume their right to protect themselves.

    However, the person defending themselves "must be without fault in bringing on the difficulty" that led to the threat. That's easy to determine when you are acting on your own behalf, but it can be very difficult to determine when acting on behalf of someone else. If you come upon a situation and act in good faith to protect someone - if it turns out that that person contributed to the altercation (ex: before you got there), they would have no immunity when acting in self-defense, so you would not either when you act on their behalf.

    Hey CP: Excellent comment. Alter ego is fine IF you can be sure of the situation and in most instances, even though things seems evident, they might not be what you think they are. It is a rule that sounded good when it was put in place but boy is it full of snakes. Best you call 911 and be a good witness. Very difficult to be 100% sure you are doing the right thing if you intercede and actually use your firearm.
