Looks like SD is getting Constitional Carry Law

Passed by the House and Senate and is waiting for governor's signature.

SD would be the 5th state to allow carrying w/out a permit, Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming.

While I think it's a good thing, I can't help but thnk it's fodder for those anti-gunners who oppose H.R.822 - the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act.

HR 822 if enacted would allow the untrained uncertified South Dakotans to roam the streets of Illinois armed !


EEEEEEk

COuntzerO, I do hope you were being sacastic??? As it is, WA CPL holders are also "untrained" and have been so for over 50 years (latest CPL version passed in 1961)

I wonder why all these other states with their "training" requirements don't notice, there is no blood running in the streets of WA. Oh yes, we have totally unlicensed OC too.

Ditto Pennsylvania. No training requirement for a License to Carry Firearm (LTCF). Unlicensed open carry legal everywhere in the state except within Philadelphia city limits. PA is right next door to NY and NJ, two states with some of the most restrictive firearms laws anywhere in the country, and the statistics for both accidental shootings attributed to CCW holders and crime attributed to CCW holders and open carriers combined are not significantly different from NY or NJ.

[sincerity, deep] I'm shocked, I tell you, just shocked! [/sincerity]

I hope South Dakotans will adopt constitutional carry and set a good example for the rest of the nation.

Welcome to America South Dakota.

We've been waiting for you.

In so many ways, South Dakota is paradise.

If only something could be done about the cold weather.

I also presume this was sarcastic, but for the benefit of anyone who's not sure, there is not one but two reasons why the above is not true:

1. HR822 will have no effect on states that don't already allow CCW (Illinois being the only one now I think?)

2. HR822 will not apply to anyone who doesn't have a permit, no matter what state they come from. Therefore this new South Dakota law really can't have any effect whatsoever on HR822.
