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

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.......

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