While the war on the Second Amendment has taken a more covert path in the sense that anti-gun activists are focusing on state-level initiatives that don’t get nearly as much attention, South Dakota could be a bright spot for those who support our Bill of Rights. New York is mulling applicants for gun permits present a social media and Google search history, New Jersey’s trash law on so-called high capacity magazines is about to go into full effect, and Detroit is about to mandate background checks for ammunition purchases. California already has that law on the books.
Vermont and Florida, both states with GOP governors, increased the age to purchase all firearms, including long guns, to 21. The anti-gun movement has clinched some wins, but South Dakota could be the next state to adopt a constitutional carry. Republican Congresswoman Kristi Noem won the state’s gubernatorial race this year and said that concealed carry without permits could be on the table.
Fingers crossed, folks. At the same time, we’re going to have to deal with a lot of left wing nonsense from the Democratic House in January. And yes, anti-gun shenanigans will be on their list of action items.
