Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R) signed House Bill 4494 into law on June 29, marking an end to South Carolina’s experiment with radical anti-gun policies in the 1970’s.

This law, effective upon the Governor’s signature, repeals the prohibition on selling certain handguns that do not meet the arbitrary 800 degree melting-point standard, and the requirement for Federal Firearms License holders to be licensed with the state in order to sell handguns.  H 4494 also brings South Carolina into conformity with federal law by allowing the sale of long guns in non-contiguous states to South Carolina residents.

With the repeal of these laws, coupled with the 2004 repeal of the law that limited handgun purchases by law-abiding citizens to one in a thirty day period, South Carolina has now dismantled the last vestiges of an anti-gun agenda that was successfully promoted in the 1970’s.

Governor Haley deserves thanks from the pro-gun community for signing into law this important legislation.  Also deserving appreciation for their efforts (as previously reported here) to pass H 4494 are Senators Chip Campsen (R-43), John Courson (R-20), John Land (D-36), Larry Martin (R-2), Harvey Peeler (R-14), and Nikki Setzler (D-26), as well as Representatives Mike Pitts (R-14) and Rick Quinn (R-69).
