    Fire Suppressor is a buggin out

    Life is full of unexpected surprises and right now my life is calling me to South Dakota. I will be moving to South Dakota by the end of this month. I just wanted to take a moment and thank all of you for the past amazing five years. I have met many of you over the years and many of you have become my friends. Politics aside Washington is a very special place and I will miss it along with all of you but sometimes in life you have to take a risk in hopes of something more.

    I really would like to give everyone a very special thank you. I know we have not always agreed on everything but we have all always been here in support of one and other. The South Dakota forums are not nearly as active as Washington's in fact they are just about a ghost town but I have also found that guns and open carry is much much more socially accepted in South Dakota so maybe that is the reason. I will miss the enthusiasm, support and the level of activism in our local group.

    Open carry truly is a life altering experience and I am not the same man as I walked in as five years ago. You all have helped me grow and gain confidence in one of our most important constitutional rights. Washington has been my home for the last 26 years and many of you have become my friends so even though I am moving away I will be keeping a eye on the forum.

    My schedule is going to be a little crazy over the next couple weeks but if there is any interest in a lunch or get together before I leave I can make some time for one. If not I truly do wish everyone the very best and with people like all of you in the state there is still hope for it and its gun rights.

    God bless all of you, keep your strong side strong and one in the chamber

    In my law school class on Conflict of Laws we had a case in the book about the State of South Dakota regulating the cement industry. Our professor asked the class why South Dakota was so concerned about cement. The reply from the back row was "Because it's the only thing that grows there." :-)

    Wow, South Dakota, there is some nice country out there. It reminded me of the default desktop image for windows XP. Rolling green hills is what I saw in May.

    Good luck with your new adventure.

    I hope you'll stay away from Sturgis! Damned bikers! Rode there a few times and am glad I didn't live very close, like 1,500 miles or so! Stay outta trouble!

    But, if you do ride, I seem to recall that both OC and CC are illegal in SDak when on a motorcycle...

    A right cannot be lost by exercising it. McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025, 130 S. Ct. 3020, 3021, 177 L. Ed. 2d 894 (2010) (citing Near v. Minn., 283 U.S. 697 (1931)).

    Although IAAL, anything I say here is not legal advice. No conversations we may have privately or otherwise in this forum constitute the formation of an attorney-client relationship, and are not intended to do so.

    Not so - a permit solves that problem:

    .....this section does not apply to any person who is carrying a pistol and possesses a permit to carry a concealed pistol issued pursuant to chapter 23-7

    Best of luck to you.

    If you plan on doing any winter camping get a Wiggy's sleeping bag before you do it there.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
