Finding A Firearms Instructor South Dakota SD

Firearms Training ClassAny Firearms Instructor in South Dakota that is competent will let their students know that a true comprehensive handgun training course can be several days at a minimum, and not to expect a course that teaches them everything in a single session, it simply cannot be done. Learning to accurately draw, engage, sight in, and stop a threat is a slow and methodical progression that can’t be taught in just one or two days. Rather, a structured one step at a time style of course is the best way to learn and grow in skill level for self-defense shooting.

Article VI, Section 24 of the South Dakota State Constitutional Provision States:  “The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the state shall not be denied.”

March 2013; South Dakota became the first state in the nation to enact a law explicitly authorizing school employees to carry guns on the job, under a measure signed into law by Governor Dennis Daugaard. Experts and supporters said the new law will help protect children and school staff in the state from potential mass-murderers. Gun rights activists, meanwhile, hope the measure signals a trend toward reasonable laws, as opposed to the wild assaults on the Second Amendment being sought by Obama and his allies.   

South Dakota is also the only state we know of where it’s possible to buy a shotgun and shotgun shells in the airport  right outside the metal detectors!

South Dakota is a "shall issue" state for concealed carry. The local county sheriff shall issue a permit to carry a concealed pistol to qualified applicants. A temporary permit shall be issued within five days of the application. Concealed carry is not permitted at an elementary or secondary school, in a courthouse, or in any establishment that derives over half of its income from the sale of alcoholic beverages. For non-residents, South Dakota recognizes valid concealed carry permits from any other state. South Dakota is known as a pro-gun state and strong supporter of the second amendment.

The bearer of a concealed pistol permit may carry a concealed pistol anywhere in South Dakota except where prohibited by law. Open carry is legal in South Dakota and does not require a concealed pistol permit. Firearms may be transported in vehicles if they are clearly visible.

Open carry in South Dakota; one could argue that it is not possible to be a true supporter of the second amendment without supporting open carry because open carry is the right protected by the amendment. Open carry of a holstered handgun is a lawful activity in South Dakota, with certain exceptions.

The South Dakota Legislature convened its 2013 session by advocating for the rights of law-abiding gun owners and introduced several pro-gun bills that are now up for discussion and hopefully for vote soon.

 Currently, there are five (5) listed firearms manufacturers in the state of South Dakota, the list includes: H-S Precision Inc, Kenneth R Johnson (K&P Gun Company), Miller Arms Inc, Pumpkin Kutter CO (Wideview Scope Mount), and  Remington Arms Company LLC.

South Dakota became the first state in the country to authorize teachers to carry handguns in the classroom. South Dakota already had some of the most lax gun laws in the country. Back in 2009, the state passed a law repealing the waiting period to purchase handguns, meaning there is now no mandatory waiting period, none at all to purchase a handgun.

The "school sentinels" law signed by South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard, a Republican, allows the state's 152 school districts to decide whether they want to arm teachers, other employees, hired security guards or volunteers. School boards must get approval for their program from local law enforcement officials, and sentinels would have to pass a training program to carry weapons (handguns) in the schools.

The South Dakota Legislature recently passed SB 89 which declares “exempt from federal regulation any firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition manufactured and retained in South Dakota.” Now, a little more than a week later, South Dakota Governor Mike Rounds has signed the bill into law. The bill is the latest of many crafted in states across the country in the last year which re-assert the Tenth Amendment rights of the states which have been carelessly trampled by the federal government for decades.
