Re: “The conversation we should all be having about gun violence and firearm safety

"Shootings occur almost every weekend in parking lots outside bars"
But name one of those shootings that were committed by a CCW holder. Almost every time that occurs it's someone who already has been stripped of his right to bear arms due to a previous crime.

"The recent shootings or guns discovered in the hands of school children is another serious accident waiting to happen."
They were breaking the law already, and a law requiring that guns be locked in a gun safe doesn't mean the parents will actually do that. The best such a law can do is result in the parents being incarcerated, probably leaving other children with parents in jail.

Re: “The conversation we should all be having about gun violence and firearm safety

I liked the article, and realize there are two sides to every story! When the open carry regulations were passed a few I fought against them. To have a law that states that you can carry a gun into a bar, but you can't drink, is the dumbest thing I ever heard. I was not wrong. Shootings occur almost every weekend in parking lots outside bars in the Charleston area. The recent shootings or guns discovered in the hands of school children is another serious accident waiting to happen. The problem lies with parents who do nothing to keep guns in a locked, secure place. There are many yhings that our Legislature can do to reduce crime in this state, but depend on the NRA to keep their offices in Columbia. Pretty sad.

Re: “A look at South Carolina's very own Monkey Island

I have seen Morgan Island and the 'Monkey Island down in the Florida Keys. The vegetation on the key was completely denuded and you could see monkey turds floating in the water long before you got near. You could smell it very strongly also- fun trip to see them, but was one nasty place!

Re: “What to do when the director of the EPA doesn't believe in climate change?

The EPA is an out of control agency that hasn't answered to anyone in government since Nixon created it in 1972. It's a bloat, agenda-drive bureaucracy that is destroying the American economy and actually hurting real people by creating regulatory work far beyond it authority, for the purpose of creating more work for itself and with the goal to expand in perpetuity.

As usually, Mr. Rutledge's Chicken Little editorials are empty of facts and heavy on the hysteria, quoting that well known global warming scientist Dr. Seuss. No, the water and air isn't going to turn all Green Eggs and Ham under this administration if they simply want to make the EPA more accountable to the American people and more responsible for the way their actions effect those same people.

Your act is getting predictable and boring Jeremy, I'd suggest next time you include the old chestnut "what about the children?" It won't make you editorial more factual, but it is an empty emotional point you haven't used yet.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

My point in quoting the OP was that the Obama administration engaged in actions far more power hungry and constitutionally lawless than anything the Trump administration has engaged in the two months they have been in office.

I don't think any of us mind that terrorists are dead, but a president can't selectively pick and choose to enforce constitutional laws, otherwise kiss that 2nd amendment bye if you get a president who chooses to unlawfully confiscated legally owned firearms from American citizens for no other reason than he feel the owners are "bad guys"

BTW James Rossen was wiretapped and his only crime was he worked for FOX.

Re: “Getting a grip on real world feminism

I want to throw up. Shame on you. You don't know how great you have it here as a woman. Most women who are married, rule the roost. Have you been to Pakistan, or Afghanistan lately?? Or Somalia? Or Bahrain? Saudi Arabia. I suggest you visit those countries before mouthing off how bad women have it here.

And I guess you did not read the articles and see the pictures and videos of the people coming in from Syria into Germany. All young men. You hardly saw any women and children. You need to brush up on your current events. They are building an army. Have you any idea what is going on in the EU? Apparently not.

My parents were refugees. But came here legally. Never took a dime from the government and assimilated. Did you know that the #1 name in the U.K. Is Mohammad? Not Harry. Why is that? Do you know that Sweden has the highest incident of rape by young Muslim men? Why is that? The girls are dying their hair dark, to dissuade the men from attacking them. But I guess it's their fault. The land of the midnight sun.

You try moving to a country where they let you stay. Give you free housing. Free medical, free food and spending money. It doesn't exist. They throw u out. Why? They have borders.

You talk about justice. My goodness. You live in the greatest country in the world. Start appreciating it.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

Wait a minute. Wasn't this article about the trans gender issue??? The above comments have absolutely nothing to do with the article. I feel for transgender people. I just watched an episode on VICE on HBO last week devoted to this issue. And if it is healthy to start young kids from going thru puberty. I really do feel there is a cross chromosome that happens. But the issue is what to do with the majority of the population who are not transgender. We hv to look at both sides. When I saw this young boy on Vice, who was 5, he was already a " she". Totally. No way did she look like a he. But what happens when she goes to middle school and HS? And has to change in the locker room. She can get hormones to be more feminine. She can go in a stall. The girls will never know, until they start gym. I know when I was a young teenager, the thought of seeing a man's genitals was scary. Granted teenage girls r having sex at a younger age. But not all. And it is not fair to them and their parents to be subjected to a very small % of the population.

I do not think the Supreme Court sent it back to the lower courts because of Trump. This will be left up to the states. Just as pot is being left up to the states.
But to judge people as racists or homophobic and just horrible people is nonsense because they don't agree with transgender bathrooms.

People who voted for Trump are not racist. Don't hate gays. Don't hate transgenders. And blacks who are republicans are not uncle Tom's. It is utter nonsense. And it's getting boring.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

The global killings of American's likely refers to people like Anwar al-Awlaki, A great guy and Muslim preacher, who incited attacks against the West. Also, Samir Khan, another great guy, who was an Al Qaeda militant who created and served as an editor for the Al Qaeda magazine, 'Inspire'. Awlaki's son , was also killed by U.S. Drones. Or Perhaps he refers to another great guy, Jude Kenan Mohammad, who was an Al Qaeda recruiter. All great guys I am sure, all U.S. Citizens, and all thankfully dead for fighting against the country they betrayed.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

As far as wiretapping of private citizens, maybe some thought should be put into wiretapping the right citizens (which they did - can't vouch for the current administration) because since 9/11/01, all terrorist attacks that have been carried out on American soil, have been American citizens.

"Global killings of American citizens" ordered by Obama? Please provide a source because I would like to research that some more since it is extremely troubling.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

"In this regime, there are no real principles, only power and the repression of anyone vulnerable enough to repress."

This Baltimore carpetbagger must have been smoking a lot of the cannabis he speaks of for the last 8 years to miss all the wiretapping of private citizens, forced health insurance mandates and unauthorized global killings of American citizens that the Obama administration was engaged in.

CCP how long until you give a South Carolinian an editorial job that you farm out to Northeast hacks?

Re: “Is Hyman's a tourist trap, a beloved classic, or, perhaps, an institution?

I love Hyman's and so does my family! We have celebrated births, birthdays, anniversaries, and engagements there for the last almost 20 years, and will continue to go for as long as we can. The food is truly indicative to what we Charlestonians are, down home cooking done in an southern fashion and flair, clean and modest, and the epitome of seafood in the south. Mind you, the sandwiches are too huge to mention and taste absolutely wonderful! The best sweet tea around, absolutely amazing Bloody Mary's for brunch and hush puppies that will shut your mouth. They now offer our own FireFly Distillery concoctions and the Blackberry Moonshine Margherita is my absolute favorite!! Let the hater's hate, they're always going to have to about something, but for those of us that LOVE our southern ways and seafood, Hyman's is the place to go to get the best Seafood any way you want it, Cold sweet tea for a hot day, and a lovely view of our favorite market streets!! To me Hyman's is already " Institutional Status"!!
