South Dakota governor signs law that enables concealed carry without a permit

Republican Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota signed a law on Thursday which allows residents to carry concealed handguns without a permit. The concealed carry law will make South Dakota the 14th state to allow constitutional carry and the law will go into effect on July 1. Being the first female governor of South Dakota, Noem is ’honored’ to have this be her first bill signed into law.

I guess bad guys will have to think twice before committing a crime there. The Governor knows bad guys don’t follow gun laws anyway, so allow good folks to protect themselves.

Waiting for the leftist sources to smear a white woman for allowing people to carry guns.

This is a bad idea; without a permit, what guarantees do you have that the person is not a mentally unstable psychopath? I do not believe that strict gun control is going to curb violence (for one, different, less effective weapons could be used), but let's not act like this law cannot be exploited or anything. The point of permits should ideally make sure that a)dangerous criminals cannot legally own guns, b)the gun owner has the mental capacity to understand the implications of using the gun on someone, and c) to make sure that someone carrying a gun knows actually know how to use it with reasonable training.

Cool! Knowing this the police can shoot every one of you and claim the possibility you were armed. Have fun with that.

South Dakota passing laws to protect the Constitutional rights of its citizens. Meanwhile in Virginia and New York, Dems and libtards are trying to pass bills legalizing infanticide. Can't make this shit up.

Gun ownership isn't the whole of the 2nd ammendment, just part of it. Please read the 2nd ammendment text itself.

CC permits are a good thing, if your state doesn’t have a CC permit, you can’t carry in any other state with a CC permit. If they want to allow anyone to carry, they should also have a certification to show competency as well to allow you to carry in other states that accept your state’s.

This was always a right. They are just rectifying the past failures in government to protect our God given rights.

I do not agree with using guns. I'm a hand to hand type fighter that way everybody gets to go home and learn. However, the US has fallen in all regards to being a good country to its people due to the fact that super wealthy NON elected people control our govt. Freedoms has been vanishing faster than intelligence in the United States. Laws like this scare me but also give me hope that REAL freedom still exist in THIS country. We know freedom and the American dream is live and well OUTSIDE of the United States! Only intelligence will save you/us.

I am pro 2nd, but requiring permits only ensure the basic safety protocols are understood by the holders. Not a bad idea when it comes to guns. I have never heard loud arguments against ccp's, so why fix something that aint broke.

I thought the point of the permit was to stop crimmals from carrying guns. Now if they are caught carrying a gun, there is no punishment.

Not the intent of the 2nd amendment. The us has a standing army now and invasion by a foreign country is highly unlikely. The intent was not to enable citizens to be shooting other citizens commiting crimes.
