MILLER: South Carolina kicks back ban on gun concealed carry in restaurants

Gun-rights activists believe they will see the pendulum swing back in their direction this year.

President Obama and his gun-control buddies were successful in pushing through new restrictions on the Second Amendment in eight states last year.

But now, South Carolina has bucked the trend and moved to strengthen the right to bear arms.

Gov. Nikki Haley is expected to soon sign a bill, which passed the General Assembly on Thursday, that allows for concealed carry in bars and restaurants. Gun owners will still have to have a legal permit and not drink alcohol.

This is the first gun-related state legislation to be sent to a governor this year.
