Governor Bevin Signs NRA-backed Constitutional Carry

"Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) today applauded Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin for signing Senate Bill 150 into law. SB 150 is NRA-backed legislation that fully recognizes the constitutional right of law-abiding gun owners to carry a concealed firearm.

 “On behalf of the NRA's five million members, we would like to thank Governor Bevin for his leadership on this critical issue," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA's Institute for Legislative Action. "This law is a common sense measure that allows law-abiding citizens to exercise their fundamental right of self-protection in the manner that best suits their needs."

Kentucky already recognizes the right to carry a firearm openly without a permit. Current law, however, requires a state-issued permit to carry that same firearm under a coat or in a bag. This new law simply extends the current open carry rule to concealed carry. Those who obtain permits will still be able to take advantage of the reciprocity agreements that Kentucky has with other states.

With this law, Kentucky becomes the 16th state to recognize constitutional carry, joining Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming.

"NRA members and Kentucky’s law-abiding gun owners also appreciate the hard work and leadership of the bill sponsors, Senators Damon Thayer, Brandon Smith and Representative Savannah Maddox. Without their efforts, this bill would not have become law," concluded Cox."

Good for them. 16 states now with constitutional carry, yet CT is going the other way. At least 30% of the states in this country are now constitutional carry.

Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

1/3rd.

Yeah my math was slightly off. Was in the process of changing it when you posted.

In other words, the ones that were loose are getting looser, and the ones that are tight are getting tighter. This isn't good for the community as a whole, it's only good for those that already have it good. Polarization. It isn't the rising tide that lifts all ships... it's the clash of temperatures that form tornadoes.

Cue the Bevin Bell outrage. Good for the Commonwealth and the Gov.

I'll forgive taking the hand-out from the state of CT for his family-owned Bevin Bells Company that burned-down in 2012 if he comes back here and tries to help the 2a effort. BTW- Bevin Bell factory is still a crater on Bevin Blvd- You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login .

Polarization.
Correct. This is just one more example of how polarized this country is becoming with respect to the 2nd Amendment and guns. Contrary to liberal gun grabber cries, there is no blood running in the streets in constitutional carry states.

Do you think it’s becoming polarized or does the opposing side just seem to be more and more extreme?  I think of myself as fairly level headed and the left just seems to be pushing further and further to the extreme. I don’t think our side, or the right side, is pulling hard in the opposite direction. Certainly not at the federal or State/local level. Most on the right in those positions are  just establishment R’s.
