New Gun Law Leads to Ordinance Change in Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS, S.D.- A Sioux Falls ordinance falls a little more in line with a new state law tonight. Earlier this year, Governor Kristi Noem signed a law that said local governments could not prohibit the sale or purchase of firearms. In Sioux Falls, the ordinance required all pawn shops and gun dealers to cross check any merchandise with a serial number. The change approved by a 7 to 1 vote tonight replaces the word “gun dealer” with second hand dealer, which still allows for cross checking.
