Conn. Shooting Likely To Spark Gun Bills In SD

December 17, 2012, 12:56 PM


The South Dakota Legislature usually weighs at least one gun-related proposal during its annual legislative session, and a spokesman for Gov. Dennis Daugaard expects that the deadly school shooting in Connecticut might spark even more next year.

Daugaard spokesman Tony Venhuizen tells The Associated Press on Monday that the Newtown massacre likely will lead to new proposals in the 2013 session, which begins January 8.

He adds that Daugaard will carefully consider each proposal that reaches his desk.

The governor's office hasn't been alerted to any specific bills yet. The 105 legislators have until Jan. 28 to introduce bills.

Last year, Daugaard vetoed a bill that would have allowed most adults in the state to carry concealed handguns without a permit, essentially requiring little more than a driver's license.
