South Dakota House of Representatives Passes Constitutional Carry
Pierre, SD–The National Association for Gun Rights is hailing the passage of Constitutional Carry in South Dakota, which cleared its first legislative hurdle in the State House yesterday by a vote of 37 to 30. It now moves on to the Senate.
House Bill 1072, authored by pro-gun RepresentativeLynne 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.”
