Kentucky: Your Help Needed, Constitutional/Permitless Carry Pulled from Consideration

Unfortunately, the constitutional/permitless carry legislation, Senate Bill 7, has been pulled from consideration in the Kentucky Senate.  With a short 2017 legislative session, SB 7 must not be delayed through the legislative process.  It is of the utmost importance that this bill be scheduled for a hearing!

It is critical you contact the Senate Veterans, Military Affairs, & Public Protection Committee immediately and urge them to bring Senate Bill 7 for consideration.  Also, please contact your state Senator and call 1-800-372-7181 with your support for this important self-defense legislation!

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.  Additionally, Senate Bill 7 would keep the current permitting system in place so individuals who obtain a permit could still enjoy the reciprocity agreements that Kentucky has with other states.

Again, call 1-800-372-7181 and click the “Take Action” button to contact the Senate Veterans, Military Affairs, & Public Protection Committee and your state Senator.  Urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 7 and tell them that this important self-defense legislation needs to be heard right away!
