article imageLocked and loaded: South Dakota teachers now able to carry guns

By Alex Allen     Jul 1, 2013 in Politics
Pierre - A law went into effect on July 1st which could allow some teachers in South Dakota to legally carry a firearm onto school property.
While New York is cracking down on guns and causing businesses to flee the state, South Dakota is freeing up some laws in favor of gun owners. The "School Sentinel" bill, which was officially signed into law by Governor Dennis Daugaard in March, has now gone into effect.
While this new law may seem appealing to many pro-gun enthusiasts, however, it's not a total win for gun freedom. In order for a public school employee to pack a gun onto school property, the school district must first approve it. The bill also requires that local law enforcement work with the schools to train staff members who will pack guns on school property.
So far, no school districts in the state have shown interest in allowing their employees to carry guns on school property.
