FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) - Senate Bill 150, allowing permitless carry in the state of Kentucky, passed the Kentucky House Friday by a 60 to 37 vote.
The measure, backed by the NRA, was debated heavily with several legislators attempting to add amendments that ultimately failed.
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."
The Kentucky State Fraternal Order of Police along with several other law enforcement agencies were against the bill, citing safety concerns.
Our Gray DC Bureau talked to Gov. Bevin today and he confirmed he will sign the bill into law.
We would urge the @KYHouseGOP & @kyhousedems to oppose this bill until our safety concerns can be addressed. In its current form it will be very dangerous for police/constituent contact. The current CCDW curriculum outlines how to interact with the police safely! https://t.co/Zarbd3MuT8— KY State FOP (@KYSTATEFOP) March 1, 2019
