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.
