in south carolina, the president's gun plan would have the biggest impact on gun shows and local gun dealers. but one expert says don't expect much change- will whitson explains. president obama announced his executive gun regulations to applause... "we do not have to accept this carnage as the price of freedom cheers" - but to south carolina gun owner's association president and local gun shop owner gerald stoudemire- the president's remarks fell flat. "i'm very skeptical that it will accomplish anything but make people feel good." the executive action- stoudemire says- doesn't break any new ground in the debate over gun regulation. "he's reinstating what's already federal guidelines." for example- the president's order to look into new gun technology doesn't create new laws- instead it gives an order to government agencies already under the executive branch to do research. and the executive action doesn't change the federal 3 day waiting period- though it

perform background checks during the waiting period. "i really don't see the advantage to that, somebody's got to pay those people." what does change in the current federal gun policy is the addition of background checks gun sales outside of the gun shop- closing a hotly debated loophole. "it doesn't matter if you're doing it over the internet or a gun show. no matter where you do it, or what you do." i called organizers for several gun shows scheduled around south carolina for the month of january- one organizer said they had no plans to change the upcoming show in columbia, and when asked about the background check requirement, said they couldn't answer any questions. ww, wis news 10 south carolina lawmakers have also introduced several pre-filed bills dealing with stricter gun regulations for the upcoming legislative session. we'll take a look at those bills on wis news at 7. the fight against terrorists in afghanistan is proving deadly again for american troops. one was killed today and two others were hurt during an operation in helmand province in southern afghanistan.
