Kentucky: NRA-Backed Legislation Introduced in State Legislature

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Pro-gun legislation of importance to gun owners, sportsmen and supporters of the Second Amendment was introduced this week in the Bluegrass State. NRA-backed Senate Bill 150, sponsored by state Senator Brandon Smith (R-30), would make the following changes to Kentucky’s 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 Concealed Deadly Weapons License (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 30 days the Department of Kentucky State Police had to approve or deny an application for a CDWL.

SB 150 is critical to protect your inherent right to self-defense!  Please contact your state Senator TODAY and respectfully urge him or her to support this NRA-backed legislation.  Click here to view contact information for your elected officials.
