Kentucky: Support the Senate Committee Substitute for Kentucky Permitless Carry Legislation

Tomorrow, the Kentucky Senate State and Local Government Committee are scheduled to vote on positive technical changes to NRA-backed Senate Bill 257.  Sponsored by state Senator Albert Robinson (R-21), SB 257 would allow a law-abiding individual to lawfully carry a concealed handgun for self-defense without needing to first obtain a government-issued license. It is important you contact members of the Senate State and Local Government Committee and ask them to support the committee substitute to SB 257.


This bipartisan legislation recognizes the right of Kentuckians to legally carry a concealed firearm without the requirement of acquiring a Kentucky concealed carry deadly weapons license (CCDW).  The committee substitute for SB 257, is a much-needed update to concealed carry in Kentucky, allowing law-abiding gun owners the ability to better protect themselves and their loved ones.  This legislation would give Kentuckians the freedom to choose the best method of carrying for them, based on their attire, gender and/or physical attributes.  This legislation would also keep in place the current permitting system so that people who obtain a permit may still enjoy the reciprocity agreements that Kentucky has with other states.

Please contact members of the Senate State and Local Government Committee and urge them to SUPPORT the committee substitute to Senate Bill 257 when it is heard tomorrow.  You can contact committee members by clicking here or the Take Action button above.
