Gun ownership mandate
Wick is one of five South Dakota legislators who introduced a bill in January 2011 that would mandate South Dakotans to purchase a firearm. Wick said the legislation is meant to make a statement regarding the federal mandate to purchase health care insurance. "Do I or the other co-sponsors believe that the state of South Dakota can require citizens to buy firearms? Of course not. But at the same time, we do not believe the federal government can order every citizen to buy health insurance," Wick said. The legislation would require anyone over 21 to purchase a firearm before Jan. 1, 2012, provided that they are not legally disqualified.
Wick won re-election in the 2012 election for South Dakota House of Representatives District 12. Wick ran unopposed in the Republican primary on June 5 and won re-election in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.
