Kentucky: Pro-Gun Bills Pass House Committee, Head to House Floor

Today, two pro-gun bills that deal with the concealed deadly weapons license (CDWL) training process passed favorably out of the House Judiciary Committee.  Senate Bill 67 and Senate Bill 114 will now be transmitted to the full House of Representatives for their consideration.  Please begin contacting your state Representative in support of these CDWL reform bills!

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. 

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 your state Representative by calling 1-800-372-7181, and politely urge him or her to vote in SUPPORT SB 67 and SB 114.  NRA-ILA will keep you updated as these and other firearm-related bills progress through the legislative process.
