On Tuesday, the first day of the Kentucky statehouse’s 2017 session, legislation was introduced to make the Bluegrass State the twelfth state in the nation to allow lawful residents to carry concealed firearms without a permit. Senate Bill 7 would allow any law-abiding individual who can legally possess a firearm to carry a handgun for self-defense in Kentucky without having to obtain a permit to do so.
So far Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming have similar laws—a policy commonly called “Constitutional Carry” because it expressly affirms the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms.
