"Constitutional carry" bill introduced in Kentucky Senate

By  | 

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) - A “constitutional carry” bill has been introduced in the Kentucky Senate that would allow law-abiding adults to conceal carry weapons without a permit.

The summary of Senate Bill 150 says the objective is to "create a new section of Chapter 237 to allow concealed deadly weapons to be carried by persons age 21 and over without a license in same locations where concealed carry license holders may carry them."

Currently, Kentuckians have to have a permit to carry concealed, which is given by their local sheriff’s office after they have taken and passed a class.

SB 150 is scheduled to be heard in the Kentucky state Senate Veterans, Military Affairs, & Public Protection Committee on February 14.
