This past week and weekend, Governor Kristi Noem signed multiple pro-gun and self-defense bills into law. These important measures work to further strengthen and protect the Second Amendment right to self-defense in the Mount Rushmore State. Those measures enacted are outlined below:
Senate Bill 100 provides protections for gun stores, ranges, or any other entity that engages in the lawful selling or servicing of firearms, components, or accessories. SB 100 also prevents the prohibition, regulation, or seizure of citizens’ Second Amendment rights during a declared State of Emergency.
Senate Bill 111 reduces the cost for some types of concealed carry permits.
House Bill 1212 clarifies the use of force under South Dakota’s Stand Your Ground laws. The bill enhances your right to self-defense by strengthening and explaining when justifiable force can be used in defense of person and property, so long as the individual is not engaging in an unlawful activity and is in a place they’re allowed to be.
NRA thanks Governor Kristi Noem for signing these important pro-gun bills into law, as well as the sponsors and legislators that worked to usher them over hurdles and through the legislature. Also, thank you to NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters who continuously contacted their lawmakers, voicing their support of Senate Bill 100, Senate Bill 111, and House Bill 1212.
