The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) has sent out an alert that Senate Bill 7, Kentucky’s “Constitutional Carry” bill that was expected to have the support of at least 75% of state senators, has inexplicably been pulled from consideration.
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. This bill recognizes a law-abiding adult’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses.

Additionally, Senate Bill 7 would keep the current permitting system in place so individuals who obtain a permit could still enjoy the reciprocity agreements that Kentucky has with other states.
Kentucky residents are encouraged to contact your state senators and have SB 7 added back to the legislative schedule for a hearing.
