South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R) signed House Bill 4494 into law on June 29, marking an end to South Carolinaís experiment with radical anti-gun policies in the 1970ís.† This law, effective upon the Governorís 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.†
