South Dakota, Utah, Vermont and Virginia Updates

South Dakota – The Governor has signed three bills that will become effective July 1, 2022.

SB 195 clarifies their current Stand Your Ground Law.

SB 1162 Updates the definition of Loaded Firearm that a firearm is considered loaded only if a round is in the chamber.

HB 212 reduces the cost of a South Dakota Permit to $00.00

Utah - The Governor has signed SB 115 which puts more teeth in their firearm Preemption laws. The amended laws become effective May 4, 2022. You can read the bill at

Vermont - (Effective July 1, 2022) The governor has signed S 4. This bill adds a section Banning firearms in Hospitals. They must be posted. It also added a section to existing law allowing for Non-Residents to take high cap mags into VT for a certified shooting match. I had reported this earlier as passed and the legislature overrode the Governors veto. That was not correct. The legislature made one little change the Governor wanted and sent him this bill which he signed. All they changed was 30 days to 7 days for Background Check Waiting Period. You can read the bill at

Virginia – I posted about S 758 and VA removing Switchblade Knives from their law. The bill only allows for possession of switchblades. It is still illegal to possess a switchblade until July 1, 2022 when this law takes effect. § 18.2-308. Carrying concealed weapons still makes the carrying a concealed switchblade knife illegal even when the new law goes into effect. You can read § 18.2-308. at

The bill that covers another section of VA law that only allows for the possession can be seen at that just allows for the possession.
A Thank You to those who pointed this out to me.
