On Thursday, March 28th, the Kentucky Legislature adjourned sine die from its 2019 Legislative Session having passed and enacted legislation that fully recognizes the constitutional right of law-abiding gun owners to carry a concealed firearm.
Senate Bill 150, sponsored by Senator Brandon Smith (R-30), recognizes a law-abiding citizen’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner they choose. 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.
NRA-ILA would like to thank Senators Damon Thayer (R-17) and Brandon Smith (R-30) and Representative Savannah Maddox (R-61) for their hard work championing this legislation, and Governor Matt Bevin for signing it into law.
Your NRA-ILA will be back at the Capitol for the 2020 session, and in the meantime, please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates on issues affecting your Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage in the Bluegrass State.
