Legislation to allow guns in South Carolina schools is set for debate early next year. The pre-filed measure gives individual principals the authority to decide whether faculty can carry guns on campus.
Robert Battista, the owner of the 707 Gun Shop in Socastee, is in favor of the bill. “Why do you lose your Second Amendment rights just because of your job choice or because you are walking into a particular building? I think that's a much better way to protect our children than to teach them to hide under their desk or to jump out of a school window,” he said.
