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.
