Kentucky: 2014 Session Underway with Legislation Already on the Move

Friday, January 10, 2014

On Tuesday, the 2014 sixty-day regular session of the Kentucky General Assembly convened and with it, so did the fight to preserve and promote the Second Amendment rights for law-abiding citizens across the Bluegrass state.

Senate Bill 60 was introduced by state Senator John Schickel (R-11) on Wednesday.  SB 60 would make key changes to the concealed carry permitting process by allowing instructors to issue training certificates to students who passed an accredited concealed carry course.  This bill would also allow for concealed carry permit holders to carry while in businesses whose primary profits are derived from the sale of alcoholic beverages.

SB 60 has not yet been assigned to a Senate committee but your NRA-ILA is working closely with your state Senators to see its advancement through the legislative process and hopeful passage into law. 

Unfortunately, anti-gun sentiments among some state legislators in Frankfort continued with the introduction of House Bill 151 by state Representative Reginald Meeks (D-42).  HB 151 would repeal critical components of the current statewide firearms preemption law and allow for localities across the state to enact their own patchwork of potentially restrictive and irresponsible gun control laws, including a mandate for locking devices on firearms, mandatory firearm storage requirements, and limits on the possession of firearms by certain individuals.

HB 151 has been assigned to the House Judiciary Committee but has not yet been scheduled for a hearing.  Your NRA strongly opposes this bill and those like it that would infringe on your Second Amendment rights.

We will be sure to update you as this legislative session progresses and let you know when and where your help may be needed.  Please stay tuned to your e-mail inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates.
