South Dakota joins brief opposing Nebraska ordinance regulating guns

by Josh Chilson  |  published on January 8, 2015

Attorney General Marty Jackley says South Dakota has joined a court brief signed by at least two dozen other states opposing a California city ordinance regulating handguns.

Jackley says the amicus, or friend of the court, brief was filed in opposition of a city ordinance that required all citizens who possess handguns in their homes to disable them or to stow them away in a lock box whenever the guns are not being physically carried on the person.

Jackley says he strongly encourages the safekeeping of firearms at homes particularly when children are present. However, he adds, “the government should not come into our home, dictate and enforce how to keep firearms.”

The bipartisan brief signed by 25 states argues the ordinance goes against people’s Second Amendment rights.
