South Dakota Will Become The 14th Constitutional Carry State Tomorrow, After Governor Pledges To Sign Bill
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has promised to sign new legislation tomorrow that will allow the concealed carry of a firearm without the need for a permit.
Currently, open carry of firearms is legal in the state, but concealed carry requires a permit.
Our Founding Fathers believed so firmly in our right to bear arms that they enshrined it into the Constitution. Tomorrow, I will sign SB47 into law. This constitutional carry legislation will further protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding South Dakotans.— Governor Kristi Noem (@govkristinoem) January 30, 2019
Tomorrow, South Dakota will become the 14th state to allow constitutional carry.
The bill passed the state House in a 47-23 vote this past Tuesday and the Governor, who took office January 5th, has expressed her support for constitutional carry in the past.
