The first legislative crackerbarrel meeting of 2012 for Rapid City was held this morning at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology. My thanks to Ed Randazzo of The Right Side for running my video recorder for me since I could not be there due to other commitments.
The entire 2-hour meeting was captured on video, is being uploaded to YouTube tonight and will be available here at American Clarion tomorrow.
In the meantime, this is a clip from the first discussion of HB 1015, the Constitutional Carry bill, and it’s defeat in the state House Judiciary Committee yesterday. As he did in committee testimony yesterday, Rep. Brian Gosch again stated that the main reason he voted against this bill to expand Second Amendment rights was to “punish” the South Dakota Gun Owners group which supported the bill.
