South Dakota Governor signs Constitutional carry into law

February 1, 2019

With all of the depressing news we have been subjected to this week how about a feel good story for a change?

 While the Supreme Court is set to take up a challenge to a New York law which forbids people from owning handguns without a permit states like South Dakota are going in the opposite direction.

  Today South Dakota became the 15th state to approve Constitutional carry when the Governor signed the legislation into law. Here is more:

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) on Thursday signed a law allowing residents to carry concealed handguns without a permit.

Noem, who just entered office earlier this month, signed the bill repealing the permit requirement that was passed by the state legislature, The Argus Leader reported.

She said she was “proud” that it was the first bill she signed as South Dakota governor.

“It’s special for me to be signing a bill into law that protects our Second Amendment rights,” Noem said.

The law, referred to by its proponents as “constitutional carry,” gives South Dakotans to choose whether to obtain a concealed carry permit.

  This is great news and a step in the right direction. Between more states passing Constitutional carry and with a possible Supreme Court victory in the New York case we could finally be on the verge of actually reaffirming and setting in stone once and for all the Second Amendment protection which was written into the Constitution all those years ago.
