Bill would exempt SC-made guns from federal rules
Positions are being staked out on all sides...
CHARLESTON, SC (AP) - 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 says his bill would allow South Carolina manufacturers to skirt federal regulations because the materials would not cross state lines.
The Roebuck Republican pre-filed the bill on Dec. 13, a day before massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn, where a gunman killed 20 children and six adults.
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.

5. I suppose I'd have to switch to FN's here in VA.
I read about this a few years ago for my state but haven't heard any updates in a while. Most of my AR stuff has been coming from SC.
I already bought one of my AR lowers from a company in Radford, Va. LOL
