Kentucky: Legislature Adjourns Sine Die

Kentucky: Legislature Adjourns Sine Die

On Tuesday, the Kentucky General Assembly adjourned with two pro-gun bills signed into law.  As previously reported, Governor Steve Beshear (D) signed both Senate Bill 67 and House Bill 91 into law this week.

SB 67, introduced by state Senator C.B. Embry (R-6), will allow citizens more options for firearms training when obtaining a Concealed Deadly Weapons License (CDWL) and will 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 will 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. 

HB 91, introduced by state Representative James Kay (D-56), will 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 will also streamline the reporting process for those on the charitable gaming license.

Unfortunately, pro-gun Senate Bill 114 stalled in the House.  SB 114 would have prohibited administrative regulations requiring concealed deadly weapon license applicants to clean their firearms in class.  Instead, it would have replaced these requirements with instructor demonstrations.  SB 114 would also have allowed firearms safety instructors to issue certificates of completion rather than the Department of Criminal Justice Training.  

NRA thanks you for your active involvement in support of these pro-gun bills this session.
