Two Kentucky Pro-Gun Bills Need Your Help!

Thursday, April 1, 2010

Please Stand Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

House Bill 542, introduced by State Representative Terry Mills (D-24), passed the House by a vote of 96-2 on Thursday, March 18.  It is now in the Senate State and Local Government Committee. 

This bill would direct the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources to include a voter registration application form as part of an application for a hunting license or permit.  In addition, HB542 would also provide that any change of address form submitted for purposes of a hunting license or permit would serve as a change of address for voter registration.  Hunter-Voter legislation will encourage sportsmen’s involvement in the political process and is an important method for preserving Kentucky’s outdoor heritage. 

House Bill 453 passed the State House on Tuesday, March 16 by a vote of 92-4.  It is now in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Authored by State Representative Will Coursey (D-6), HB453 would allow an individual to carry a loaded or unloaded firearm in an enclosed compartment originally installed by the manufacturer in a motor vehicle.  The firearm would not be considered a concealed firearm under state law.

Both HB542 and HB453 are stuck in their respective committees.  Because of budget talks during the final week of regular session, it looks like these bills may not be addressed.  Please contact Senate leadership TODAY and ask them to consider HB542 and HB453 during the veto override session.  Contact information is listed below.
