South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley recently signed a bill into law allowing guns into bars. That is clearly a horrible idea, but hey, if you're already on the crazy train why get off on the first stop?

Clearly Governor Haley isn't planning on getting off anytime soon as she recently stated that she now is in favor of a bill allowing anyone in South Carolina to carry a firearm without a permit or training. Because America.

According to Yahoo News:

The proposed Constitutional Carry Act (S. 115) would decriminalize carrying a firearm without a permit — effectively eliminating the need for a concealed weapons license and related training — and would allow people to carry firearms either concealed or out in the open.
In a statement on Tuesday supporting the bill, Governor Haley said:
“Criminals are dangerous and I think that every resident should be allowed to protect themselves from criminals."
However, the facts show that the fewer restrictions you have on guns, the more gun violence you have, which is clearly the opposite of what any sane governor would want. But when you're bought and paid for by the NRA, an organization whose main objective is to sell more guns for gun manufacturers, using things like facts and figures start to become a real nuisance.

Governor Haley is up for reelection this November against State Senator Vincent Sheheen, after barely beating him in 2010, so perhaps she's just doing this to fire up the fringe element of her party. But with extreme ideas like this, let's hope that the residents of South Carolina choose to send her packing come November.
