SOUTH CAROLINA —
Proposed legislation would exempt weapons made in South Carolina from federal regulations. Sen. Lee Bright's Firearms Freedom Act would mean that firearms, ammunition and gun accessories made in South Carolina aren't subject to federal rules and oversight. Bright said his bill would allow South Carolina manufacturers to skirt federal regulations because the materials would not cross state lines. Eight other states have already approved similar proposals, and dozens of others are considering them. Legislation approved in Montana is being challenged in federal court. State lawmakers reconvene in Columbia on Jan. 8.
