Repeal of Concealed Carry Fees Becoming Law

 

 

 

PIERRE, S.D. – On Friday, July 1, SB 212, which eliminates all concealed carry permitting fees in South Dakota, becomes law.

 

 

“It will not cost you a penny to exercise your 2nd Amendment rights in South Dakota. We are even paying for your federal background checks,” said Governor Kristi Noem. “In South Dakota, we will always defend the rights of law-abiding gun owners to keep and bear arms to protect themselves and their loved-ones.”

 

 

With this legislation, South Dakota becomes the first state in America to eliminate fees for its concealed carry permitting system. The only other state without fees – Vermont – does not operate a concealed carry permitting system.
