Majority of Legislature and Governor must think we are going to be attacked by Canada

As you probably heard, permit-less concealed carry passed the legislature and Donita Trump said she will sign the bill. If you do any REAL research on the 2nd Amendment, you will know that it’s main purpose was to create a ‘regulated militia’ in parts of the country that didn’t have one (We have the SD National Guard) and so slave owners could control their slaves. There of course was killing critters for food. Other than that, there is really absolutely NO reason anyone needs to own a gun. But since it is legal to own a lethal weapon, the permit process is NOT broken and works fine (well, it really should be stricter by requiring owners to get an operator’s license and carry liability insurance on every firearm they own). Why are we going backwards on gun safety? I can’t answer that, even after a large majority of gun owners and non gun owners just recently polled said they are OK with the permitting process.

As we all know, this will open up a whole new market of people buying guns privately and carrying without a permit. Not all of these people could pass a background check. This will only make law enforcement’s job harder, a lot harder. It will also give a free pass to anyone who couldn’t get a gun before. It is complete insanity, and anyone who voted for this needs to have their head examined.

Besides the possible increase in crime, it could also affect tourism in our state, in fact I was surprised that the Chamber, Retailers Association and the Department of Tourism did not oppose such an ignorant bill.

It also proves that our legislature wastes a lot of time on bills that are not only not needed but harmful to the citizenry as a whole.

Once again, they have done nothing to ensure;

More open government.

Eliminating food taxes (and taxes on other necessities like clothing, utilities and hygiene products)

Expanding Medicare to assist with nursing home residents (and frankly help the economy)

Funding ALL education better (Pre-K, Higher Learning, Technical and K-12)

Giving counties more revenue through realigning alcohol taxes.

Cutting the Half-Penny tax due to the new internet sales tax revenue.

Our State Legislature is a black hole of nothingness, it has been horrible for a very long time, and this year will go down in history as one of the worst. In fact, one of the key members went to Texas for 3 days to attend a Mini-Golf concessions conference (Al Norstrup). Will his pay be cut for missing several crucial votes?

It’s time to clean house in the next couple of election cycles.

How does concealing something make you safer? Don’t you want to expose it? Doesn’t concealing make you vulnerable? If you have a home security system, like ADT, don’t they place a little sign in your front yard to ward off burglars? If you think you need a gun, wouldn’t you want to show it off? We don’t keep our large Navy at port, do we? Heck no, we have it sailing the seven seas to show our strength and prevent conflict. People that hate permits are actually people who need a holster, maybe a fancy, shiny holster with some beads. You could show that off, too, the holster that is. Some day I am going to get a muscle car, and when I do, I am not going to keep it in the garage, rather, I am going to drive it around to show it off; and I would think a concealed weapon would make it so much more complicated if I chose to prevent, or would want to ward off a potential car jacking, don’t you think?…. 😉

Coincidentally, open gun carry passed at the end of January 2019. 1-19 is the mirror image of 911. With Trump allied with Russia, Brexit, drug cartels, gun deregulation, etc. what’s happening in this country?
