Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin Vows to Sign Constitutional Carry

On Friday, March 1, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin said that he will sign Constitutional Carry legislation into law. By signing Constitutional Carry, Kentucky will become the 16th Constitutional Carry state.

Under Constitutional Carry, the requirement for residents to get a permit from the state in order to carry a firearm for self-defense is eliminated.

Two weeks after the Kentucky Senate passed Constitutional Carry by a 29-8 vote, the Kentucky House passed S.B. 150 with 60-37 vote margin.

Bevin was on record saying that S.B. 150 is a textbook example of “constitutional carry” and that the bill reaffirms the Second Amendment.

S.B. 150’s language is very clear:

“Persons aged twenty-one (21) or older, and otherwise lawfully able to possess a firearm, may carry concealed firearms or other concealed deadly weapons without a license in the same locations as persons with valid licenses.”
