S.D. to weapons makers: We’re open for business

Spreading the word that South Dakota is home to a “culture of hunting,” the state’s delegation to January’s Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show and Conference made a splash with participants.

The SHOT Show, which concluded Jan. 22 in Las Vegas, is the largest exposition of firearms, ammunition, archery, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, camping and related products and services. It regularly draws some 55,000 people daily for its four-day run.

It’s owned by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which prominently featured Gov. Mike Rounds’ one-day visit to the festivities.
“We were excited to have Gov. Rounds with us at SHOT Show,” NSSF senior vice president and general counsel Lawrence G. Keane said in a statement. “Time and again, he has proven himself to be a friend of America’s firearms industry, understanding that through our products the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding Americans are realized.”

South Dakota also got a shout-out from the National Rifle Association, which called it a “forward-looking state – truly a friend to the firearms industry.”
And in an interview with the NRA, posted at, state Department of Tourism Secretary Richard Benda had this to say during a press conference at the SHOT Show:

“We don’t just talk about the outdoor industry. We live it. We get it. South Dakota is absolutely not going to regulate the firearms industry out of business.”-[source]
