Stand Your Ground Bill Reaches Governor Noem’s Desk

(Pierre, SD) — A new Stand Your Ground bill is on Governor Kristi Noem’s desk for signature. The Legislature gave final approval yesterday to a House bill that would replace South Dakota’s self-defense laws with a statute that would allow people in the state to use deadly force for self-defense in certain circumstances. Similar laws are on the books in Florida, Louisiana, South Carolina, and several other places. The bill originally died, but was revived on the Senate floor through a smoke out.
