Senate Judiciary Committee defeat SJR506(gun rights)

PIERRE, S.D. (SDBA) — South Dakota legislators rejected a ballot measure Tuesday that would have expanded gun rights in the state.
The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 7 to 0 to send SJR506 to the 41st legislative day, killing the measure.
Republican Sen. Julie Frye-Mueller from Rapid City sponsored the resolution.
The measure would have limited when guns could be taken from people charged with felonies or in domestic abuse situations.
It would also have removed sales taxes on firearms, ammunition, reloading supplies, and “accessories.”
Resolution supporter Kenneth “Chuck” Jasper, a Rapid City attorney.
Opponent Doug Abraham, representing the South Dakota Retailers Association.
Proponents also said it would strengthen and guarantee South Dakotans’ gun rights and send a message to firearm manufacturers that the state was an excellent place to do business.
