    Argus Leader - S. Dakota ban on gun permits for aliens quashed by federal judge

    A British national living in Sioux Falls has won the right to obtain a concealed weapons permit in Minnehaha County after being denied last year because of his citizenship status.


    Wayne Smith, who immigrated to the United States in 1979 when he was 15, was granted a preliminary and permanent injunction by U.S. District Judge Karen Schreier.


    She ruled that county sheriffs can't deny Smith a concealed weapons permit based on the state's citizenship requirement. Smith, who is not a U.S. citizen but has legal permanent residency status, applied for a permit last July but was denied.

    As expected, a good decision and as it should be.

    The law was a knee-jerk reaction to 9/11, and is not congruent with the rest of our gun laws. Good riddance.

    Glad to see that South Dakota judges have a pro gun stance. I met Karen once, she hails out of the Rapid City Federal Building.
