The newly-formed Kershaw County Firearms Discharge Committee met Monday and took the first steps toward crafting a compromise ordinance that could satisfy gun enthusiasts as well as property owners with concerns about firearms being used in their neighborhoods. Kershaw County Councilman Sammie Tucker Jr. organized the 11-member committee. Tucker said his goal is to have balanced representation from both sides of the issue.
