Dan and I recently returned from South Dakota, as part of our journey to check out Capital Armament, TTAG’s new official ammo supplier (based in nearby Iowa). As wikipedia.org reports, “South Dakota is a ‘shall issue’ state for concealed carry. Open carry is generally permitted.” While The Mount Rushmore State isn’t Arizona (i.e. it’s not a Constitutional Carry state), we were delighted to learn that SD recognizes every other state’s concealed carry permit.
Equally heartening, the State must issue a temporary carry permit within five days of the submission of an application. Imagine if the following chart applied to, say, New Jersey.
As our host said, welcome to America like it used to be.
