Breaking News: Another State Now Has Constitutional Carry!

Here’s a news story that you probably haven’t heard about. Frankly, it’s surprising that the mainstream media (especially CNN, in this case) even reported it at all because it’s the kind of thing that they would find too shocking to tell people.

But gun rights advocates are celebrating this news and with good reason. What is this news? It’s that yet another state has passed constitutional carry.

Now, in case you’re unfamiliar with the idea of constitutional carry, the concept says that Americans can own and carry firearms, either openly carried or concealed, without needing any type of permit or permission to do so (though some constitutional carry states still place some restrictions on some would-be gun toters). Why would they pass constitutional carry? Because the Second Amendment gives Americans that right to bear arms.

So, what state is the latest addition to the list? South Dakota. Joe Sterling gives us the details:

It’s now legal to carry a concealed handgun without a permit in South Dakota.

In signing the legislation Thursday, Gov. Kristi Noem made her state the latest to allow the practice. It’s the first bill she’s signed into law since she took office last month.

The legislation, which will go into effect on July 1, is designed to “protect the Second Amendment rights of South Dakotans by allowing constitutional carry,” she said.

“More than 230 years ago, the Founding Fathers of our country penned the Constitution that has since laid the framework for centuries of policies,” the Republican governor said.

“They so firmly believed in the importance of the freedom to bear arms that they enshrined it into the Constitution’s Second Amendment.”

Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming also do not require a permit to carry a concealed weapon, the National Rifle Association and the National Conference of State Legislatures said.

So, now that we have over one-third (36%) of all the states in the Union having passed constitutional carry, it seems pretty safe to say that this is a real and growing movement. Let’s continue to fight to get this passed in all fifty states so that our Second Amendment rights are no longer infringed by anti-gun zealots.

  1. I’M SICK OF THESE TREASONOUS HIPORCRITE’S OBSTRUCTING OUR CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS WITH THEIR TREASONOUS ACT OR BILL’S AND NOT BEING PROSECUTED UNDER THE LOGAN ACT?! SEEMS TO ME THAT PEOPLE ARE KNOWLEDGEABLE OF THE DANGERS OF A UNARMED CITIZEN WITH EXCEPTION OF THE ONES THAT HAVE EXPERIENCED THE SITUATION IN THEIR OWN FAMILIES!! UNARMED CITIZEN’S ARE PREY FOR CRIMINAL’S AND TRAITOR’S AGAINST THE CITIZEN GOVERNMENT AND THEY DON’T WANT YOU PROTECTED!! IF THE DEEP STATE HAS IT’S WAY OUR NATION WILL BE A DICTATORSHIP WITH MULTIPLE DICTATORS!!

    • Truly, it will be run just like the former Soviet Union, with their Politburo, their secret police and the “Black Hole” where dissenters fall in and are never seen or heard from again!

    • William, when you use all-caps, it is the internet equivalent of shouting and it’s rude. I realize that you are passionate about this subject – as am I -, but shouting simply turns people off and your message is lost. I’ve gotten to the point, when I see a post that is all-caps, I just skip it and go on to the next one.

      • Newborn Johnson, it’s only rude if YOU interpret it as “rude”. I interpret it as someone who is pissed off and tired of government over reach, and is venting about it, and I have no problem with that. Maybe the fact that you skip the post just because it is in all caps tells people more about you than you want to share. Form over function is not always best, usually I’ll take function over form. As long as it works, or gets its message across, I’m usually pretty good with that, too bad we obviously can’t say the same for you.

  2. THE HONEST LAWABIDING CITIZEN’S NEED TO OPEN THEIR EYES AND EARS TO WHAT’S GOING ON OR THIS COUNTRY WILL COLLAPSE!! VOTE DO YOUR CIVIC DUTY TO RUN YOUR COUNTRY AND VOTE OUT THE TREASONOUS HYPOCRISY OBSTRUCTING OUR CITIZEN GOVERNMENT!! SHEEP OR WOLVES MABE YOU LIKE TO BE PREYED UPON ROBBED OF YOUR LIVELIHOOD!! SO MUCH FOR WORD’S!! (ACTION SPEAK’S LOUDER??!)

    • They will never be voted out because apparently, way, way too many “LEGAL CITIZENS” have been to the DEMO-DOPE, INDOCTRINATION & THOUGHT TRAINING CAMPS AND FED THE DC, BS VITAMINS AND THE COOL-AIDE!
      And IF ANYONE HAS ANY DOUBTS WHATSOEVER OF THE REASON THE DEMOCRAPS -AND MANY REPUBICANS NOW- WANT OPEN BORDERS……, HHHHHMMMMmmmmm!? Can you spell INSTANT,
      I L L E G A L A L I E N, D E M O C R A P V O T E R S ????

    • Too many sociopaths that get off controlling others & looking for personal power running for office and getting elected. Too many decent people in government get burned out and sick of having to deal with them and quit. Also too many people whose first allegiance is to their political party instead of to the Constitution!!

  3. I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD LIVE IN A HEARTLESS NATION WHERE THE MOST VENERABLE HELPLESS INNOCENT CITIZENS WOULD BE PUT TO DEATH WITHOUT DUE PROCESSES!! (DISGUSTING HEARTLESS TRAITOR’S KILLING BABIES WITH LATE TERM ABORTION!! WERE IN THE DEMONIC HELL DOES IT STOP!!

  4. I agree with the former statements. The
    represntives that have been elected to
    office have two first priority’s. One DEFENED the CONSTITUION of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA! And to represent the people that elected them.
    This includes the Senators, President and Representatives. None of which have been elected to persue their own agenda. If they all would do the job the People! elected them for then we would not have Government shut downs and we would have a Government that works together.

  5. Yes politicians are raping the Second-Amendment! Now we have Trump nominating that gun grabbing William Barr for Attorney General! My god they just do not get any worse than him. Just pathetic to have an Unconstitutional Red Flag law supporter as A.G. Would not be surprised if they try to take away the Second Amendment!!!!!

  6. It’s been over two years since the house passed, the 50 State resoprosity Bill. Why hasn’t it been put up for a vote in the Senate? Trump will sign it , if it gets to his desk.
    If it becomes law, we wouldn’t need constitutional carry.
    Urge your representatives to bring it to the floor for a vote.

  7. Just you wait there will be shooting n the streets!! It’s going to be like OK corral. People will be dying like fly’s at a Raid convention! The HORROR!!!!! (sark)

  8. It never seens to shock me rgat demcratic and liberals want everything except our human rights as give in the constitution and our bill of rights. But in Ga
    They do. Give away the bank to blacks and illegals ok but give us our god given rights . Not so fast mister. Idiots all.

  10. The writer states that the Second Amendment GIVES us the right to bear arms.
    Correction” The Second Amendment GUARANTEES our pre-existing right to keep and bear arms.

  11. Folks, unless I have miscounted, that’s only 14 States or 28% . Still it’s heartening to see more States passing Constitutional Carry laws. Maybe soon we will pass 26 States and then Big Brother will have to take notice and start re-examining their stupid, knee-jerk “gun control” legislative assaults on our Constitutional rights. Remember: “When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns”! (Outlaws can include Government personnel)

  12. ive read all the above statements of anger and flustrations and I agree with every single one of you ,so I have to say this any ways! we are all right! ourconstitutional rights are being denyed! ,myself! im legally blind now after working over 39 years supporting our family and paying taxes and fighting for our rights as American citizens! but it makes me damn mad that people are not! holding Washington politicians feet to the fire! ,especially all the new democrats that support socialism /communism in our country! the time is not to complain like little kids! the time is to go to Washington and scream foul play and fight for our right! if I could drive again my car would be the first one in the parking lots protesting this fake assed government we now have! DAMIT AMERICA STAND UP! the rights to bear arms should be every state in the UNITED STATES IOF AMERICA! stop the pelosie and Bloomberg agenda to disarm America now!~ takre our country back!dont let our soldiers have died in vain for these commies!

  13. its time to stop complaining on the internet!,its time to walk on Washington and put all the politicians on notice! either work for the citizens or GET OUT!stop pelosie and bloombergs agenda to disarm America! its coming and we all know they are going to try!if people can march for the million man march and the klan can stand virtually alone on washingtons steps! (which I have no affiation with ) or any group!~ but for gods sake people ! sitting on a computer wont do it! we have to unite and let them know! its over! work for America ,protect our constitution or get the hell out! enough is enough !nd every one in Washington supporting socialism /communism shoud be kicked out for treason ,investigates,and imprisoned now! every state in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA lives by the constitution and they all! every state havs the rights to bear arms with out predjice!

  14. It seems that every one wants to stand up for the second amemendment but nobody wantsto be first . I can understand why . Nobody wants to be the first one and only person standing in the parking lot fighting the giverment for our rights . I would want to be that one eather. We have to get to gather and do it in numbers or it went mean anything . we can’t get anywhere on the internet because the only ones that read it is us.

  15. it is a crying shame that this will never happen in WA. State as long as the state is run by LIBERAL DEMOCRAT ANTI GUN SYCOPHANTS ! The people of WA, should be allowed to exercise their GOD given right to self defense and the defense of loved ones as is guaranteed by the 2nd amendment but the LIBERAL DEMOCRATS running the State prohibit this with out a CPL.

  16. Everyone of us should vow to contact our representatives and Mitch McConnell and press them to bring the 50 state reciprocity bill to the floor for a vote. I will do so today.

  17. Newbern Johnson, it’s only rude if YOU interpret it as “rude”. I interpret it as someone who is pissed off and tired of government over reach, and is venting about it, and I have no problem with that.

  18. Virginia has open carry and they have concealed carry but you must be licsensed to carry concealed . Doesn’t make a lot of sense to me but it’s much better than some states. I nearly always carry concealed . Don’t want the attention !

  19. I wish Wisconsin would pass constitutional carry.
    The only thing is we have a democratic governor in the house and we will not be getting the votes that we need to pass the bill in this session of government.
    I really wish President Trump would pass Constitutional carry to ALL states and make the law a federal law and get it done for!!!!

  20. Okla has a open carry law. We need a law that limits how long Congressmen & Senators can stay in office, the president has 8 years
    and thats long enough for them.Power and Greed can corrupt an honest.
