LAW: Kentucky is Now a Constitutional Carry State
On March 11, 2019, Kentucky became the 16th state to restore gun rights in the country.
By signing Constitutional Carry bill SB 150 into law, law-abiding Kentuckians no longer have to beg the government for permission to exercise their God-given right to self-defense.
Kentucky now joins the likes of Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming in recognizing Constitutional Carry as law of the land.
Under SB 150, anyone 21 and up can carry a concealed firearm without having to obtain a permit. Gun owners still have the option to apply for a concealed carry permit for reciprocity purposes.
Despite the wave of gun control that ravaged the U.S. in 2018, 2019 has been a big year Constitutional Carry. States like South Dakota and Oklahoma also restored the right to carry this year.
Even in solidly blue states like Illinois, Maryland, and New Mexico, gun owners are standing up to their anti-gun legislatures by nullifying gun controls laws like universal gun registration and red flag gun confiscation orders.
2019 is a demonstration that gun rights are alive and well in America. State legislatures and municipalities are stepping up to the plate to do what the federal government has clearly failed to do for gun owners over the past few decades.
