Gov. Dennis Daugaard has vetoed a measure that would have allowed South Dakotans to carry concealed handguns without a permit as long as they had a driver's license and otherwise met state standards for carrying guns.
In his veto message to the Legislature, the governor says he supports people's right to carry a concealed handgun under the current law that requires a permit. He says the bill would have made it difficult for law enforcement officers to determine whether people are qualified to carry concealed weapons or are prohibited from doing so because they have criminal records or mental health problems.
The Legislature will consider the governor's veto on Monday. A vetoed bill can become law if two-thirds of the House and Senate vote to override the governor's veto.
And note he made this last minute veto in order to give the citizens less time to put pressure on their legislators. Yes, in a gobal economy based on central planning from the United Nations, we citizens don't get to have guns. And wait to here Daugaard tell pro-gun conservatives to send money so that we can defeat Obama. I say, the governor better tell his wealthy globalist cohorts that he is going to need lots of money next election.
This is the kind of votes that the South Dakota Gun Owners usually expose to the public, and that is why liberal Republicans hate them so much.
We have enough votes in the House to override, but we need to change a couple of these anti-gun Senators (only 3 are Democrats) who voted against this bill on 2/28/2012:
Adelstein; Bradford; Buhl; Gray; Holien; Johnston; Nelson (Tom); Peters; Sutton; Tieszen; Vehle
