Proposed Gun Law Changes

A new gun law may strike Kentucky.

Guarding your right to have a concealed deadly weapon and also helping you keep it private.

"It's no ones business if you have a conceal and carry permit. It's your personal right to carry a firearm and it's you personal right to keep it to yourself," said representative Jim Decesare, who voted in favor of the bill.

If it passes the senate the law would only allow law enforcement officials to find out who does and doesn't have a permit, as of now anyone can request a list.

And if you have a conceal and carry permit in Kentucky, this law will protect you from having to give up your right to bear arms, unlike what happened after hurricane Katrina.

"What did happen down in New Orleans is that law enforcement officials were seizing weapons and ammunition from people who had licenses to carry concealed weapons," Decesare said.

"I think they (the proposed laws) are well worth it... I think it's a good idea," said gun owner Greg Elliott.

Because whether shooting is your hobby...

"I shoot every chance I get," Triston Elliott said.

Or for your protection...

"The better protected a citenzenery is the less crime you have so it's to their advantage to protect themselves," said Greg Elliott.

These shooters are seeing this law as a bulls-eye.
