South Dakota Legislature Passes Constitutional Carry
Pierre, SD - The National Association for Gun Rights is hailing the passage of Constitutional Carry in South Dakota, which cleared its final legislative hurdle in the State Senate today by a vote of 23 to 11.
House Bill 1072, authored by pro-gun Representative Lynne DiSanto, recognizes the right of every law-abiding citizen in South Dakota to carry a firearm for self–defense without a government permit.
“South Dakota is on the verge of becoming the twelfth state to remove this government permission slip nonsense once and for all,” said Dudley Brown, the group’s President. “If you can legally possess a handgun, Constitutional Carry affirms you have the right to carry it without having to beg the government for a permit.”
