The battle over America’s 2nd Amendment rights rages on all around the country with no sign of coming to any type of consensus.
Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem spoke at the annual National Rifle Association convention and called attention to what she calls “discriminatory action” against those Constitutional rights.
While on stage, Noem signed an executive order to stop actions lawmakers and banks are attempting to make against the 2nd Amendment rights of Americans.
Immediately after signing the order, Noem spoke with Fox News Digital about the executive order and her potential run for the presidency in 2024.
“We’ve recently seen in this country that banking institutions are discriminating against firearm companies or ammunition companies.
“So what I did was sign an executive order that would prevent the state of South Dakota from doing any business with financial institutions that would do that type of discriminatory action against our Second Amendment rights,” Noem said.
What would the South Dakota governor say in response to those citing the deadly shootings too often in headlines across the country?
Noem argued that we have laws in place that would protect children and all Americans if they were properly enforced.
“It’s incredibly important that we set and lead by example. And this executive order is one way that we can do that, to continue to stand for constitutional rights of the people in our state,” she continued.
“Now, it’s more important than ever that those of us who value this country, that value what our founders gave us as our rights, to continue to defend them and to explain why they’re in place.
“They’re in place so a normal, everyday citizen has the chance to deter a corrupt government that would come in and take away their ability to provide for their families,” she said.
Noem was asked about the rumors of a possible run for the White House. She said that she was not ready to announce a decision, but she feels that our country desperately needs a president that is willing to fight for American values and principles.
“I’m looking for an individual like that. I hope that people in this country are as well, because now more than ever, we’re seeing federal government come in and take away our ability to even conduct business, to raise our families as we see fit and to use our values that we were raised with,” she said.
“I do think that it’s important that we keep our eye on the ball and make sure that we have the best individuals stepping forward to take on that role because we’ve got some big fights ahead and we need to make sure that we have a president who will hang in there with us,” she added.
When asked about the indictment of former President Trump brought by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, she said that Bragg is ignoring the statute of limitations and called it “all politics.”
“You know, I’m sure President Trump will go through the process and will come out recognizing that these kinds of attacks can be withstood and that he will continue to work for the people in this country,” she said.
