Will “Permitless” Carry Be Coming To South Dakota?

posted on November 23, 2016

The “permitless” carry train, which left the station a few years ago, continues its journey across the country, with the latest stop being South Dakota.

The Associated Press reports that state Rep. Lynne DiSanto plans to sponsor a measure in the upcoming legislative session that would no longer require a carry permit for law-abiding state residents to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense in the state. “I just hope this opens the door to people considering being gun owners and having the opportunity to protect themselves and their families as it was intended by the Constitution when it was written,” she said.

A similar measure moved through the South Dakota legislature in 2012, but was vetoed by Gov. Dennis Daugaard.
