Bill would prevent registered sex offenders from owning locksmith business

By Sina Gebre-Ab

A bill that would require locksmiths to undergo background checks before entering your home or car is now closer to becoming law. The bill was passed unanimously in the South Carolina State House of Representatives and is now making its way through the state senate. The bill was drafted after a North Myrtle Beach sexual molestation case involving a locksmith.

Representative Gregory Duckworth says currently it's too easy for just anyone to enter your home. "Anybody could do it," says Duckworth. "You could walk right out of jail and open a locksmith business. It's insane."
