On Thursday, February 9 at 9:00am, the Senate Veterans, Military Affairs, & Public Protection Committee is scheduled to hear constitutional/permitless carry legislation, Senate Bill 7. It is important that you continue contacting your state Senator in SUPPORT of Senate Bill 7.
Senate Bill 7 would allow any law-abiding individual who can legally possess a firearm to carry a handgun for self-defense in Kentucky without having to obtain a permit to do so. This bill recognizes a law-abiding adult’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses. Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate. Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend himself or herself in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes. In addition, Senate Bill 7 would also keep in place the current permitting system so that people who obtain a permit could still enjoy the reciprocity agreements that Kentucky has with other states.
Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 7 when it comes up for a vote.
