Contact Your Lawmakers & Governor to Support Constitutional Carry
The constitutional whirlwind which has swept across America may soon be blowing through the Kentucky bluegrass.
That whirlwind — Constitutional Carry — would make Kentucky the 16th state in the country to recognize the right to protect yourself and your family without first getting the government’s permission. This would mean that nearly a third of the fifty states would be “Constitutional Carry” states.
Senate Bill 150 — sponsored by Senator Brandon Smith — expounds the simple concept that you don’t need government permission before bearing arms.
At its core, it’s simple: The bill would legalize concealed carry and “vehicle carry” without a permit for honest citizens 21 and over.
It would allow you to get an optional permit for purposes of reciprocity and Brady Check exemption — but would not require it in the Bluegrass State.
The reason that “Constitutional Carry” has been so popular is obvious: You should not be required to get the government’s permission to exercise your constitutional right to defend yourself, your family, your friends, your community, and our Constitution.
States which have adopted “Constitutional Carry” such as New Hampshire, North Dakota, and Maine are the safest states in the country.
Contrary to dire predictions that states would become “the Wild West,” places like Arizona found that violent crime went down sufficiently after they allowed law-abiding citizens to protect themselves in this way.
But, as in other states, this extraordinary victory won’t just fall into our laps. It will take the efforts of all of gun owners across the Commonwealth to push SB 150 through the Kentucky House and Senate and onto the governor’s desk — and to secure the governor’s signature.
The bill is scheduled to be heard in the Kentucky Senate Veterans, Military Affairs and Public Protection Committee on February 14th. If you can, please attend the hearing. But if not, your state lawmakers still need to hear from you.
So please take action and urge your elected officials to support SB 150! You can contact your state representative, senator and governor with just a few clicks!
