The National Rifle Association is applauding Kentucky state Senator Brandon Smith for introducing a bill that would allow law-abiding citizens more flexibility for defending themselves.
The NRA says Senate Bill 150 is “a common-sense measure that gives its citizens more freedom to defend themselves, their homes, and their families”.
This legislation is scheduled to be heard I the Kentucky Senate Veterans, Military Affairs and Public Protection Committee on February 12, 2019.
If it gets signed into law, Kentucky will become the 15th state to adopt a permitless carry law that reduces government fees and mandates on citizens who choose to exercise their Second Amendment right to self-protection.
Permitless Carry Facts:
– Permitless carry does not change prohibited person laws or any law governing the misuse of a firearm (illegal brandishing, discharge, threatening, etc.).
– Permitless carry does not change prohibited places where a firearm cannot be carried.
– Permitless carry does not change the laws relating to when force may be used in self-defense.
– Private property owners still maintain discretion over their own property, including whether and on what terms to allow firearms
