Kentucky: Right-to-Carry Reform Bill Passes House, Heads to Governor for Signature

Charlotte, NC --( Last week, Senate Bill 150 passed in the Kentucky House of Representatives by an overwhelming 90-6 vote.

Sponsored by state Senator Brandon Smith (R-30), SB 150 is critical to your inherent right to self-defense as it eliminates several discriminatory and arbitrary provisions in Kentucky’s current concealed carry laws that may prevent you from obtaining a Concealed Deadly Weapons License (CDWL).

Specifically, SB 150 would make the following changes to Kentucky concealed carry laws:

* Repeals the residency requirement for CDWL applicants. Currently, one must be a Kentucky resident for at least six months before filing an application to obtain a CDWL.

* Removes the residency requirement for members of the Armed Forces of the United States who are assigned to a military post in Kentucky. Currently, a member of the Armed Forces must be assigned a post for six months or longer in order to file a CDWL application.

* Reduces the length of time from 90 days to 60 days the Kentucky Department of State Police has to approve or deny an application for a CDWL.

Since SB 150 already passed in the Senate by a 36-1 vote, this bill will now go to Governor Steve Beshear (D) for his signature. Please call AND e-mail Governor Beshear TODAY and politely urge him to sign SB 150 into law. Please use the contact information provided below:

Nice sounding law. I’m just left wondering how the hell KY got a Democrat governor.

Am I the only one who sees what is happening here?.

This country is breaking up.

We have the north east maybe minus NH and the most of the west coast and seeping into CO which are going far left and we have other states like in the south and midwest and AK which are staying as much as they can for the constitution.

There is a such a difference between living here in St Augustine , ST Johns county north east FL to NY or Boston.
It feels one travels there that one is in a different country because of these news laws and rules being imposed in some states and laws protecting the constitution in others.

Concealed Deadly Weapon License.

Lots of deadly things can be concealed, things that don’t go BANG.

I have had my CDWL since 1999. I can carry a switchblade, brass knuckles, numchucks, etc. However to receive the CDWL I had to shoot a handgun. Sort of wondered about that, but since that is why I wanted the permit, I wore my sheeple hat and did not question the reasoning.

Any permit or licensing requirements are an infringement, and unconstitutional.

I agree. My hubby and I spent 8 hours last weekend taking a defensive handgun class. Lots of time spent discussing the legalities of things. Was reminded how much I appreciate living in a pro gun state (Tennessee) but also how very liable you are if you ever have to use your firearm. Even here, the deck is stacked against you. In this class we were even encouraged to keep a criminal defense lawyer on retainer.
