South Dakota: Pro-Gun Legislation On The Move

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- The South Dakota Senate passed House Bill 1271 by a 28-6 vote. This important self-defense legislation will now head to the desk of Governor Dennis Daugaard for his signature.

House Bill 1271 would allow individuals to carry a firearm for self-defense on the premises of any nonpublic school, church or house of worship, or a nonpublic school that is located on the premises of a church or other house of worship.

On Monday, the South Dakota Senate is scheduled to consider pro-gun legislation, House Bill 1209. Please contact Governor Daugaard in support of HB 1271, as well as your state Senator in support of House Bill 1209 when it comes up for a vote.

    1. I am a gun owner, but never have been (nor will I ever be) a member of the NRA. I”m a moderate, and I know moderation and rational discourse aren”t really en vogue right now but here”s my 2 cents. The NRA does have a lobbying arm. That is fact. Citing a “critical need to defend Second Amendment rights from politicians, the NRA started the Institute for Legislative Action, or ILA, in 1975. The ILA lobbies the government to protect Second Amendment rights. If you”re about to argue that the ILA isn”t a part of the NRA, it is- just as your arm is part of your body. It can move independently, but it”s all controlled by the same brain. Also, (and I know this is not the majority opinion on this board), I do not think that more guns makes us more safe- which seems to be the central tenet of the NRA”s philosophy.

    2. I would prefer groups like the NRA, GoA, etc. pursue, insist, & demand that the U.S. Constitution 2A be followed as written, rather than the states enacting various laws permitting this or that relating to the keeping and carrying of firearms. State laws can be amended or terminated with the next political administration. The U.S. Constitution is supposed to be THE LAW OF THE LAND.
