Reaction to law that would allow guns in restaurants

Thursday, the South Carolina House of Representatives passed a bill by a vote of 90 to 18 that would allow people with Concealed Weapon Permits to take a gun into a restaurant or bar in South Carolina, as long as there's no sign barring weapons.

The bill is now on Governor Nikki Haley's desk, and she's expected to sign it.

Greg Hembree, former solicitor and now a State Senator who represents parts of the Grand Strand, is a co-sponsor of the bill.

Hembree says we would be the 39th state to pass this law.
