from the Chucktown P&C "Brady Center critical of S.C."

from the Chucktown Post & Courier "Brady Center critical of S.C."

Now I am jut shocked. SHOCKED I tell you. I simply cannot imagine why the Brady Center would be "Critical of SC"...

In 2006, lawmakers passed a bill that extended legal coverage under the Castle Doctrine, in which residents can use deadly force against intruders to protect themselves and their property. Someone's business or a car in danger of being hijacked became areas covered by the legally recognized defense.

Oh. There is that. And...

South Carolina is not shedding its reputation as a gun-buyers' haven, Brady Center senior attorney Daniel Vice said.

"Unfortunately," he said, "in South Carolina it is very easy for dangerous criminals to get deadly weapons."

Wow. Just like anywhere else, it's easy for dangerous criminals to get "deadly weapons" in South Carolina, just not LEGALLY.

Brady officials consider South Carolina a weak gun-law state because of the ease of getting firearms over the counter. Among their arguments is that there are no limits here on monthly purchases, and the lack of background checks required at gun shows.

Yawn. Nobody listening. Old news.

However this is actually the least biased gun story I've seen in print in some time. Good on you Schuyler Kropf, you've exceeded my expectations by not merely regurgitating Brady talking points, but adding the NRA response without a trace of a sneer.

Love the comments too.

If there are so many pro-gun folks in SC that take the time to write well-thought-out comments to stories like this, why does it seem like there are only 3 or 4 gunbloggers from SC?
