S.D. “Permitless” Carry Bill Headed To Governor

posted on March 8, 2017

The South Dakota Senate on Monday passed House Bill 1072, a “permitless” concealed carry bill. The measure now goes to Gov. Dennis Daugaard for consideration.

HB 1072, sponsored by Republican state Rep. Lynne DiSanto, removes the requirement to obtain a permit in order to lawfully carry a firearm for self-defense. According to NRA-ILA, this important pro-self-defense legislation is a big step forward in allowing South Dakotans to be better able to defend themselves and their loved ones without having to obtain a government issued permit.

It is already legal in South Dakota to carry a firearm openly without a permit, as long as the individual is not prohibited by law from possessing a firearm. This extends the same protection to those wishing to carry a concealed firearm.
