Kentucky: CDWL Training Bill to be Heard Tomorrow by Senate Committee

Tomorrow, legislation dealing with changing the training requirements and easing the process for law-abiding citizens when obtaining their concealed deadly weapons license will receive a hearing in the Senate Veterans, Military Affairs and Public Protection Committee.

Senate Bill 114, introduced by state Senator John Schickel (R-11), would change the administrative regulations requiring concealed deadly weapon license applicants to clean their firearms in class before a certified instructor, instead shifting the responsibility to the instructor to demonstrate cleaning and proper procedure as a model example.  SB 114 would also allow firearms safety instructors to issue certificates of completion rather than the Department of Criminal Justice Training, expediting the issuance period and allowing law-abiding citizens to gain access to a concealed deadly weapons license much quicker. 

Please use the information provided below to contact members of the Senate Veterans, Military Affairs and Public Protection Committee and politely request they vote in support of this commonsense reform for concealed deadly weapon license applicants.

Two additional pro-gun bills are awaiting final reading and a vote on the floor of their respective chamber, which are expected this week.

Senate Bill 67, introduced by state Senator C.B. Embry (R-6), would allow citizens more options for firearms training when obtaining a concealed deadly weapons license (CDWL) and would help ease the timeline, cost and process.  The Senate Veterans, Military Affairs and Public Protection Committee amended the original version of the bill to include language that changes firearms safety and training courses offered by the NRA to any national firearms organizations as qualifying classes when applying for a CDWL, and to add Kentucky concealed-carry law education to the new CDWL curriculum offered by a national organization.  This new national organization curriculum would run concurrent with existing Department of Criminal Justice Training (DOCJT) courses and would not alter any CDWL renewals or training standards currently in place offered by DOCJT.  Please contact your state Senator in support of SB 67.

House Bill 91, introduced 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 91 would also streamline the reporting process for those on the charitable gaming license.  Please contact your state Representative in support of HB 91.
