State lawmakers propose constitutional carry legislation


The Associated Press - January 11, 2019

PIERRE, S.D. - State lawmakers are proposing legislation that would allow people to carry concealed handguns without a permit in South Dakota.

The so-called constitutional carry legislation was introduced Friday. The proposal languished under former Republican Gov. Dennis Daugaard, but new GOP Gov. Kristi Noem offered support for such a law during her campaign.

Republican Rep. Drew Dennert is sponsoring a constitutional carry bill in the House. He says backers have the promise of the governor and support from the public and both legislative chambers.

Daugaard vetoed a constitutional carry bill in 2017, saying the state's current permitting process is "simple and straightforward." Another try failed the next year after he issued a veto threat.
