This has been another busy week in Frankfort for supporters of the Second Amendment and gun rights advocates across the Bluegrass State.
Yesterday, Senate Bill 60 passed in the Kentucky Senate by a 30-4 vote. SB 60, introduced by state Senator John Schickel (R-11), would reform the concealed deadly weapons license (CDWL) permitting process by allowing instructors to issue training certificates to students who pass an accredited concealed carry course. This bill would also allow CDWL holders to carry while in businesses whose primary profits are derived from the sale of alcoholic beverages.
SB 60 is an important pro-gun reform that strengthens your inherent right to self-defense, and your NRA greatly appreciates Senator Schickel’s tireless leadership and help on this bill and all of those Senators who voted for its passage. It has been sent to the state House of Representatives and should be assigned to committee in the coming days.
On Tuesday, Senate Bill 100 was introduced by state Senator Sara Beth Gregory (R-16). SB 100 would be a huge step towards streamlining the CDWL permitting process by allowing applicants to submit their forms electronically. This would apply to both new and renewing applicants. The greater legal access a state can provide to its CDWL applicants, the better it will be for protection of an individual’s self and their families. Your NRA fully supports SB 100 and will continue to update you as it moves through the legislative process.
