Urge Your Senator to Support Constitutional Carry!
Dear South Dakota Gun Owner:
Last week, the South Dakota House passed CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY legislation by a slim margin of 37 to 30.
The bill, House Bill 1072, now goes to the Senate.
I told you last week how New Hampshire just joined the Constitutional Carry Club.
Now, Constitutional Carry is on the move almost two thousand miles away in South Dakota.
I am so thankful for the help that GOA members and activists are providing from coast-to-coast.
You may remember that, earlier this month, I urged you to contact your state representative in support of HB 1072.
Contacting your elected officials makes such a huge difference!
House Bill 1072 specifies that a person who may otherwise legally carry a concealed handgun is not required to obtain or possess a license or permit from the state to carry a concealed handgun.
In other words, you can carry a concealed gun without registering yourself with the government or paying a permission fee.
If you have to ask for permission, pay a tax on it and register yourself with the government, it’s not a right.
This Constitutional Carry bill fixes that.
South Dakotans should not have to get the government's permission in order to exercise their Second Amendment right to carry a firearm for self-defense.
And we are within striking distance of getting the state to recognize that fundamental fact.
There is a Senate hearing scheduled on HB 1072 for Wednesday, March 1.
P.S. Go here to tell your legislator to support and vote for HB 1072 -- a Constitutional Carry bill that allows those who may legally carry a handgun, to do so without getting a permission slip from the government or paying a fee. Constitutional rights cannot be licensed or taxed.
NOTE: Only South Dakota residents should take action on this alert.
