Governor McMaster and officials urge lawmakers to increase illegal gun possession penalties, pass bond reform

Isle of Palms Chief Kevin Cornett and SLED's Chief Mark Keel joined the governor to push for new legislation.

“So before the General Assembly goes home in May, they need to pass bond reform and they need to see that we slam that revolving door, and have graduated penalties for committing these crimes with these illegal guns,” says Governor McMaster.
