Last week, Senate Bill 150 passed in the Kentucky House of Representatives by an overwhelming 90-6 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 from obtaining a Concealed Deadly Weapons License (CDWL).
Specifically, SB 150 would make the following changes to Kentucky 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 Kentucky Department of State Police has to approve or deny an application for a CDWL.
Since SB 150 already passed in the Senate by a 36-1 vote, this bill will now go to Governor Steve Beshear (D) for his signature. Please call AND e-mail Governor Beshear TODAY and politely urge him to sign SB 150 into law. Please use the contact information provided below:
