Kentucky: Bills on the Move in Frankfort

Kentucky: Bills on the Move in Frankfort

Today, House Bill 91 passed favorably out of the Senate Licensing, Occupations and Administrative Regulations Committee and will now be considered before the full Senate.  HB 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 Senator at 1-800-372-7181 and politely urge him or her to SUPPORT HB 91.

Two other important pro-gun bills that deal with the concealed deadly weapons license (CDWL) training process are currently pending in the House Judiciary Committee, and they need your help to receive a hearing!   

Senate Bill 67, introduced by state Senator C.B. Embry (R-6), would allow citizens more options for firearms training when obtaining a CDWL and would help ease the timeline, cost and process.  SB 67 also includes 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 adds 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.  SB 67 was passed by the Senate last week and has been assigned to the House Judiciary Committee for their consideration.

Senate Bill 114, introduced by state Senator John Schickel (R-11), would change the administrative regulations requiring CDWL 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 in a more timely manner

Please contact the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Representative John Tilley, and politely urge him to schedule a hearing for both SB 67 and SB 114 this week.  You can contact the Chairman and members of the House Judiciary Committee at 1-800-372-7181.  Call and ask them to SUPPORT this bill.

Representative John Tilley (D-8), Chairman

Representative Joseph Fischer (R-68), Vice-Chairman
