APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Kentucky Legislative Update!

Friday, February 3, 2006

Sponsored by Representative Carolyn Belcher (D-72) HB 290, the "Gun Owner Protection Act," will be heard in the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, February 8. This critical legislation ensures the names of concealed firearm license holders are not released to the public. It prohibits employers from enacting or enforcing policies that keep employees from storing lawfully-owned firearms in their vehicles while at work. HB 290 also prohibits government officials from regulating lawful firearms ownership during a state of emergency. An amendment will be proposed allowing concealed firearm license holders to use their license to satisfy the NICS requirement when purchasing firearms from a licensed dealer.

HB 236 will also be heard in the House Judiciary Committee. Sponsored by Representative J.R. Gray (D-6), this bill enacts the "Castle Doctrine" in Kentucky. Please call your State Representative and ask him or her to support our Right to Keep and Bear Arms by voting for HB 290 and HB 236.

Sponsored by Senator Katie Kratz Stine (R-24) SB 12, the "School Posting Bill," will be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, February 9. This bill prohibits the prosecution of gun owners who unknowingly wander onto property owned by a public or private school if it is not properly posted pursuant to current law. Current law requires the posting of school property. However, if a school ignores this legal requirement, gun owners may still be prosecuted for a felony offense when possessing a firearm on the property. This is unacceptable and must be rectified. Please contact your State Senator and ask him or her to support SB 12 in order to protect gun owners from being convicted for a felony offense. All members of the Kentucky General Assembly can be reached at (502) 564-8100.
