NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)-  Yesterday, Senate Bill 150 passed in the Kentucky Senate by an overwhelming bipartisan 36-1 vote.

Sponsored by state Senator Brandon Smith (R-30), SB 150 is critical to your inherent right to self-defense as it eliminates several discriminatory and arbitrary provisions in Kentucky’s current concealed carry laws that may prevent you or your loved ones from obtaining a Concealed Deadly Weapons License (CDWL).

Specifically, SB 150 would make the following changes to Kentucky’s concealed carry laws:

  • Repeals the residency requirement for CDWL applicants.  Currently, one must be a Kentucky resident for at least six months before filing an application to obtain a CDWL.
  • Removes the residency requirement for members of the Armed Forces of the United States who are assigned to a military post in Kentucky.  Currently, a member of the Armed Forces must be assigned a post for six months or longer in order to file a CDWL application.
  • Reduces the length of time from 90 days to 60 days the Department of Kentucky State Police has to approve or deny an application for a CDWL.

SB 150 now goes to the Kentucky House of Representatives where the NRA hopes for a prompt and favorable hearing in committee.  This year’s abbreviated 30-day session is closing in on its final days.  We need you to call AND e-mail your state Representative TODAY and politely urge them to SUPPORT SB 150 and move this bill through committee quickly!
