NRA Urging RINO Governor Veto Override

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is taking the unusual action of getting behind an override of South Dakota RINO Governor Dennis Daugaard’s veto of Second Amendment legislation from the 2017 South Dakota legislative session.

The NRA is asking South Dakota legislators to support South Dakotans’ Second Amendment rights while diplomatically and respectfully telling these legislators that the NRA is paying attention to how they vote, and will give this vote heavy consideration in future NRA grading.

South Dakota’s Legislators are now being forced to chose either their fealty to Gov. Daugaard, or their campaign promises to support South Dakotan’s Second Amendment rights. Which will they choose?  YOU, the voters, get to help decide that.

Below is a letter from Daniel Hall of the NRA:

RE:                 HB1072—Constitutional Carry—VETO OVERRIDE                


The NRA-ILA strongly supports an effort to override the governor’s veto of HB1072-Constitutional Carry.

Facts regarding the bill:

–Allows law abiding citizens to carry a concealed weapon without first being required to obtain a state issued permit.

–Makes no changes to provisions regarding who can legally carry/own a concealed weapon, or where a concealed weapon can be carried.

–Makes no changes to private property owners’ rights to allow/prohibit weapons on their property.

–Makes no changes to the current permitting process, as the permit is needed for reciprocity with other states.

This is a top priority bill for the NRA, and any veto override vote will be heavily weighted.
