Today, Senate Bill 150 passed in the Kentucky House Judiciary Committee. 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 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 passed in the Senate by an overwhelming 36-1 vote and now goes to the floor of the Kentucky House of Representatives
If you are from KY contact your representatives and show support for this bill right away. The legislative session is coming to the end, we need this to pass to help keep our freedoms and also to send a message to the anti's that KY Pride still exists ( otherwise they'll think KY pride refers to something else....)
It's refreshing to see some positive bills moving forward!

I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
