Permits up, reciprocity up and South Dakota is still going strong. Cam Edwards speaks with State Liaison Darren Goens about the good news from South Dakota where Goens says pro-gun enthusiasm is "nothing new." This year almost 17,000 concealed carry permits were issued by sheriffs throughout the state, 15.6% more than in 2008. Goens also reports that South Dakota has right-to-carry reciprocity agreements with 26 states, and state lawmakers continue to actively pursue more.
