Not Too Late For S.D. “Permitless” Carry

posted on March 22, 2017

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard’s veto of a “permitless” concealed-carry measure last week doesn’t mean that it is time to give up.

As NRA-ILA notes, the South Dakota Legislature will hold a veto session on March 27, and HB 1072 could be brought up for consideration. If the veto is overridden in both chambers, HB 1072 would become law.

In South Dakota, it is already legal to carry a firearm openly, as long as the individual is not prohibited by law from possessing a firearm. However, under current law, if a firearm becomes covered by a coat or if a woman prefers to carry a firearm for self-protection in her purse, he or she would need to possess a CCHL. This legislation would have given South Dakotans the freedom to choose the best method of carrying for them.  

The legislation would also have kept in place the current permitting system so that people who obtain a permit could still enjoy the reciprocity agreements that South Dakota has with other states.

USE YOUR POWER!

South Dakota residents are urged to contact their state senator and representative and tell them to bring HB 1072 up for consideration during next week’s veto session. You can contact them by clicking here.
