Constitutional carry, or permitless carry, just passed the South Dakota senate! It will not go to the Governor’s desk for review. Whoooo-hooo.
HB 1072 was brought to a vote by Senator Brock Greenfield (R-2) who argued that the Second Amendment rights of South Dakota residents had basically been taken away by the state and were only given back to residents if they agreed to acquire a carry permit. He said HB 1072 “streamlines the situation. It doesn’t require somebody to lease back their guaranteed second amendment right, so long as they’re not subject to any disqualifiers.”
Breitbart News reported that the South Dakota House passe HB 1072 on February 24. If Daugaard signs it South Dakota will become the 14th state to recognize permitless carry.
