Proposed bill allows military to conceal carry in SD

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - South Dakota lawmakers will debate allowing military people – active duty, guard and reserve – to carry concealed weapons without a permit.

The state already allows law enforcement officers “acting under color of authority” to carry a concealed gun on them or in their vehicle. Senate Bill 9 adds service members.

Everyone else would still be guilty of a misdemeanor if they carry a concealed handgun without a permit.
