“Permitless” Carry Legislation Proposed In Kentucky

posted on March 4, 2016

Kentucky Democratic state Reps. Hubert Collins and Jody Richards have introduced House Bill 531, which would deregulate the state’s concealed-carry permitting system so law-abiding gun owners could legally carry concealed handguns without first obtaining a government-issued permit. While Kentucky grants open carry of a firearm, this bipartisan legislation expands that right by allowing citizens the ability to carry a firearm as each sees fit, such as under a jacket or in a purse. The legislation will still recognize reciprocity agreements in other states for all permit holders.

The bill is currently in the House Judiciary Committee, and a Senate version of HB 531 is expected soon.
