Pierre, S.D. (KELO-AM) - South Dakota saw a record increase in the number of permits to carry a concealed pistol issued in February.

Secretary of State Jason Gant says, “During the month of February, 5,305 Concealed Pistol Permits were issued.  This is 683 more than January of 2013 and 3,534 more than February of 2012.  This trend of new and renewals of Concealed Pistol Permits is breaking all previous records at an unprecedented rate.”

Gant said, “An individual who wishes to carry a concealed pistol on or about his person or in a vehicle must obtain a permit to carry a concealed pistol.  A person does not need a permit to own a pistol, keep it in his/her home, business, or property, or visibly carry it.”
