Tomorrow, the South Dakota House is scheduled to vote on pro-gun legislation that clarifies certain definitions in regards to firearms, House Bill 1162. Please contact your State Representative and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 1162.
House Bill 1162 updates the definition of “loaded firearm” under South Dakota law to designate that a firearm is considered loaded only if a round is chambered. This update provides easier methods of storing firearms in an “unloaded” manner, yet still maintain utility in self-defense situations when seconds matter.
Again, please contact members of the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 1162.
