Kentucky: More Gun Legislation Introduced in Frankfort

Friday, January 31, 2014

This week has seen a lot of activity in Frankfort with the introduction of three more pieces of pro-gun legislation.

House Bill 283, sponsored by state Representative James Kay (D-56), would clarify certain aspects of Kentucky’s charitable gaming statutes and afford groups like the Friends of NRA the opportunity to host more events throughout the state.  HB 283 would also streamline the reporting process for those on the charitable gaming license.

Senate Bill 88, sponsored by state Senator Dan Seum (R-38), would strengthen the already existing statewide firearms preemption statute by preventing local boards of health from regulating any part of a firearm or ammunition.

Senate Bill 106, sponsored by state Senator Jared Carpenter (R-34), would strengthen an individual’s ability to defend themselves against another for those persons who have legally sought an Emergency Protection Order (EPO).  SB 106 would expedite the permitting process by giving almost immediate access to a Concealed Deadly Weapons License (CDWL) to those persons under protection by a court issued EPO, following a background check.

House Bill 127, sponsored by state Representative Bob Damron (D-39), was introduced during the first week of session and merits our full support as it preserves the rights of sportsmen, shooters and gun owners alike as they travel by air.  HB 127 would solidify your rights by taking away the ability of Kentucky airport boards and regulatory bodies to dictate the allowance of firearms in non-secure areas of airports or to go beyond the scope of current federal law and regulations in airports.

On Wednesday, anti-gun state Representative Reginald Meeks introduced House Concurrent Resolution 85.  HCR 85 is  a subtle attack on your Second Amendment rights under the guise of creating a “task force” to study public safety.  This “task force” will only abuse taxpayer dollars and resources by attempting to implement additional gun control measures, creating a backdoor method to impose further restrictions on the ability for self-defense, lawful possession of a firearm and the limitation of firearms afield for sportsmen and shooters.

Your NRA is standing vigilant on the front lines in the battle for your Second Amendment rights and will continue to keep you updated as these and other legislation make their way through the 2014 legislative session.
