Earlier this week, the South Dakota Legislature began its 2017 Legislative Session. It is important that gun owners and sportsmen across the state of South Dakota stay actively involved throughout 2017 as well as stay-tuned to NRA-ILA email alerts and www.NRAILA.org as the session progresses.
Your NRA-ILA has learned that state Representative Lynne DiSanto (R-35) is expected to introduce constitutional carry legislation in the near future. This pro-gun legislation would allow any law-abiding individual who can legally possess a firearm to carry a handgun for self-defense in South Dakota without having to obtain a permit to do so.
Your NRA-ILA will continue to work hard to promote and protect your Second Amendment rights, and keep you updated on the status of legislation impacting your Second Amendment rights in South Dakota.
