Kentucky Update on Pro-Gun Legislation!

Friday, February 10, 2006

Sponsored by Representative Carolyn Belcher (D-72), HB 290, the “Gun Owner Protection Act,” passed the House Judiciary Committee with a unanimous vote and is now headed to the full House for a floor vote.  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.  Please contact your Representative and ask that he or she support HB 290. 

Sponsored by Senator Katie Kratz Stine (R-24), SB 12 passed the Senate Judiciary Committee with an 8-2 vote. It is now headed to the full Senate.  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 Senator and ask that he or she support SB 12.

All members of the Kentucky General Assembly can be reached at (502) 564-8100.  Also, when contacting your legislators, please ask that they actively support the passage of the “Castle Doctrine Legislation” that significantly bolster’s the right to self-defense in Kentucky.  It is HB 236 in the House (Representative J.R. Gray (D-6)), and SB 38 (Senator Dick Roeding (R-11)) and SB 52 (Senator Ed Worley (D-34)), in the Senate.
