    So what's the deal with your Governor vetoing the concealed carry bill? Seems odd thing to do considering what state he is in and the direction many states are going.

    It is hard to believe that the so called "intelligent" politicians think that concealed carry permits will keep people who intend to break the law honest. The people of SD spoke through the elected representatives and senators only to have Gov. cupcake veto the bill. Disgusting. Lots of folks are displeased with him regarding this and some other state legislation regarding jail time and drug sentencing. Word is he has no aspirations for higher office, idk...

    This exactly. I was in Fargo over the weekend and my brother and I were discussing how ND and SD had similar carry bills this year and I was explaining to him how I figured our governor is only conservative when it suits him.

    Not that I think it will matter with or without. But, calling our CC process burdensome is laughable. Pay your $10, have the Sheriff look at your record, and get your permit. If that screening process stops a few folks from getting a CC and instant access to a handgun (versus the 48 hour wait), I don't see the issue. Bad people are going to do bad things no matter what, but a small screening isn't the end of the world to me.

    Anyone can carry a firearm out in the open. You don't need to have a permit to open carry a firearm. You only need the concealed carry permit if you want to hide that firearm when out in the public.

    You basically just need to have $10, 5 minutes and be alive to get a concealed carry permit in South Dakota.

    Maybe in SD but that's not true everywhere.
