South Dakota: Committee Hearing Scheduled for Important Constitutional Carry Legislation

On Wednesday, February 15 at 7:45am, the House State Affairs Committee is scheduled to hear constitutional carry legislation, House Bill 1072.  Sponsored by Representative Lynne DiSanto (R-35), HB 1072 would remove the requirement to obtain a permit in order to lawfully carry a firearm for self-defense.  This important pro-self-defense legislation is a big step in allowing South Dakotans to be better able to defend themselves and their loved ones without having to obtain a government issued permit. Please contact members of the South Dakota House State Affairs Committee and urge them to support HB 1072.

In South Dakota, it is already legal to carry a firearm openly, as long as the individual is not prohibited by law from possessing a firearm.  However, under current law, if a firearm becomes covered by a coat or if a woman prefers to carry a firearm for self-protection in her purse, he or she would need to possess a CCHL. This legislation gives South Dakotans the freedom to choose the best method of carrying for them, based on their attire, gender and/or physical attributes.  However, this legislation would also keep in place the current permitting system so that people who obtain a permit could still enjoy the reciprocity agreements that South Dakota has with other states.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above or call (605) 773-3851 to contact members of the House State Affairs Committee and urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 1072.
