Contacted congressional candidates Kristi Noem and SHS.
What is Kristi Noem's/SHS's position on open carry, as in the open carry of firearms by law-abiding citizens? In South Dakota, as in most states, open carry is not prohibited by law. However, in some states open carry has been questioned or attacked by legislators and politicians. Nationally, this is an important and current issue.

Thank you for your prompt response,
Kristi asked me to get back to you about your question on open carry. Kristi supports open carry. As you may know, Kristi has been a strong supporter of Second Amendment Rights during her career in the State Legislature and will continue that if elected to Congress.
Thank you for contacting our office. Let us know if you have any questions in the future and we would appreciate your support on Election Day.

SHS (I think this was a robo-reply):
