Panel OKs Allowing Concealed Guns In SD Capitol

Panel OKs Allowing Concealed Guns In SD Capitol
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota House Transportation Committee has voted 8-5 to support a bill allowing people with concealed carry permits to bring firearms in the state Capitol building.

The same committee voted 10-3 to kill another bill that would have allowed those with permits to keep guns in their parked cars, regardless of parking lot policies.

Supporters of the measure authorizing weapons in the Capitol say it would allow legislators and staff to protect themselves in an attack. Opponents say passions run too high in controversial legislative and Supreme Court proceedings to add guns to the mix.

That bill will go to the House.

Opponents of the defeated bill that would have allowed guns in vehicles say it pitted landowner rights against the Second Amendment.
