PIERRE — South Dakotans will be able to carry concealed handguns without a permit beginning July 1.

Less than a month into office, Gov. Kristi Noem fulfilled one of her campaign promises on Thursday by signing the bill repealing the requirement into law. She said she was "proud" that it was the first bill she signed as governor. Republican legislators who championed the bills stood in a crowd behind her as she signed the bill at a desk in the Capitol Rotunda, applauding after her signature turned it into law.

"It's special for me to be signing a bill into law that protects our Second Amendment rights," Noem said afterward.

It is the repealed statutes that makes permit-less carry not unlawful in SD, I think. The text of the bill has some contradictory/confusing language in my view. There is explicit language that outta-staters can carry w/o a permit, maybe. It is a step in the right direction to be sure.
