Do people who shoot thieves get time in South Carolina?

When I'm shopping, I always look for the store with the "Thieves will be shot" sign.
I know the chances of being mistaken for a thief are pretty low, but I do like just a little bit of danger.

So, devils advocate time...

Who says that the theft of my car is any less important than the theft of anything else or anyone else's possessions?  I've worked honestly and hard to be able to buy my car, I need my car to get to and from work, run errands, and to experience life.  The very act of stealing my car is prohibiting me from doing what I need to do in my life, and prohibiting me from enjoying my life the way I want to...you are negatively affecting my livelihood and my ability to get around in a meaningful way.

What is valuable to me, may not be as valuable to you and vice versa, that being said,who are you to tell me that my possessions are not worth defending if someone is trying to take them from me?
If you are willing to steal a car, you have to accept the possibility that the car you are stealing means a lot to the person it is getting stolen from.

Yeah, a fence might be in order here. You won't stop all the theft, but a good fence will put a nice dent into it.

It's fairly easy to steal these things with a truck and a trailer.  I would recommend getting a substantial locking gate instead of shooting people.  Also I would imagine that they're stealing these things at night when there's no one around with a gun anyway.  The cheapest option would be to get a large ill-tempered dog.

Only if they stupidly report the murder to the police. Just dig the bullets out and dump the body on a disused road. If anyone knows what he was doing when he went missing, they won't talk to the police.

A bullet costs about a dollar and a head on a pike serves as a warning to others.

Career criminals lack the ability to properly process risk versus reward. Until you fix that (which is possible) you're never going to stop them by increasing the severity of the potential consequences.

We live in a culture that tells us that objects are worth killing for. Is it any wonder then that we have lots of people who have no problem taking other peoples' objects by force? The two go hand in hand.

Stay tuned for the inevitable follow-up stories of "Business owner accidentally shoots various employees, customers, and passers-by, mistaking them for thieves in the fog", or "Business owner accidentally shoots self while fumbling with gun while thief makes an easy getaway".

But my car/stolen item holds sentimental value to me that cannot be equated in monetary terms.  Why should I have to?  It is not my problem that their family member chose to do something illegal and got killed in the process...

Why should I have to compensate a thief's family?  What, the family relied on stolen goods as a from of income, and now that I've taken out the main breadwinner, the family is now at a loss and has to find real jobs?
