South Dakota: “Permitless” Carry Bill Needs Your Help

posted on March 15, 2017

We mentioned last week that the South Dakota Senate had passed House Bill 1072. The “permitless” concealed carry bill now awaits Gov. Dennis Daugaard’s signature. Sponsored by Republican State Rep. Lynne DiSanto, HB 1072 removes the requirement to obtain a permit to lawfully carry a firearm for self-defense.  

It’s imperative that gun owners and Second Amendment advocates contact the governor today and urge his support of this important measure. According to the Argus Leader, Daugaard has already met with lawmakers and supporters of the bill, and he has indicated his plans to veto. 

"The inconvenience to the law-abiding citizen is so minimal,” Daugaard weakly argued. The governor seems to be forgetting that bearing arms is a constitutional right, not a privilege, and that no law will prevent a criminal from getting a gun. Because neither the Senate nor House have enough votes to override a governor’s veto, your immediate response is critical.
