This Makes South Dakota One Of The Best States To Carry

Senate members in South Dakota overwhelmingly supported and passed a bill that deems the Second Amendment as the only license needed to carry a concealed weapon in the state.

Senate Bill 47 will remove the legislation that forces individuals who carry concealed to first obtain a license. 

Sen. Brock Greenfield, who was the leading sponsor of the bill argued that, “Essentially we’re being asked as law-abiding citizens to go to our county and seek to lease back our constitutionally protected right to bear firearms, and I think that’s inappropriate.”

The bill is very similar to one that was passed in 2017 only to be vetoed at the last step by then- Gov. Dennis Daugaard.

While not fully ratified, the bill is well on it’s way going into a GOP-controlled House before reaching new Gov. Kristi Noem, who has been a vigilant supporter of the Second Amendment.
