Thune, Rounds Oppose Gun Reform Measure

(Washington, DC) — Both of South Dakota’s senators have announced their opposition to the gun reform legislation currently being considered in Congress. Both Senators John Thune and Mike Rounds point to Second Amendment issues in their criticism of the legislation that passed the Senate Tuesday. The package includes mental health and school security programs as well as background checks for anyone under the age of 21 who’s buying a gun. Thune says he does not believe the bill is something South Dakotans would support while Rounds says he’s still studying the bill before deciding on how he’ll vote on the final measure. Right now, Rounds says he’ll likely vote against the bill.
