Thread: Constitutional carry

  1. Constitutional carry

    Why can't we have Constitutional carry in Ky? It seems to be a no brainer to me. I can carry openly but if I don't want people to know I have to pay a fee. Doesn't seem right to me. Also if I carry openly I lose the element of surprise if something bad happens.
    I cannot see the logic of advertising to anyone that I have a weapon plus the fact if I carry openly It scares the bejeebers out of some people. Seems sort of ridiculous that I could carry a rifle down the street (which I don't want to do) but cannot carry a small pistol where no one can see it unless I pay the state some money.

    You know that they say freedom isn't free.... well I guess that's why we have to pay for a permit. Ha.

    Just my opinion, but having to pay for a permit is NOT my idea of freedom.
    I'd rather be a Conservative Nutjob. Than a Liberal with NO Nuts & NO Job

    I open carry for the tactical elemental advantage of deterrence.

    Kentucky Governor signs popular constitutional carry bill into law

    https://www.guns.com/news/2019/03/12...-bill-into-law

    03/12/19 6:30 AM | by Chris Eger


    Gov. Matt Bevin on Monday signed a bill to make Kentucky the latest state to recognize permitless concealed carry as law.

    The measure, SB 150, codified the right of those over 21 to carry a concealed weapons without a license in the same locations license holders can. Introduced on Feb. 11, it swept through the legislature in less than a month with a strong 29-8 Senate endorsement and a 60-37 vote in the House.

    Kentucky already recognizes open carry without a permit and under SB 150 would expand state law to cover concealed carry. The state’s current permit program would remain in place to allow holders to enjoy reciprocity agreements the Bluegrass State has with other jurisdictions. Kentucky has had such a program for almost 20 years and issued nearly 400,000 permits in that period.

    The new law, set to take effect in July, would make Kentucky the 16th state to recognize permitless concealed carry, including three this year alone. In February, South Dakota adopted a similar law followed quickly by Oklahoma. Lawmakers in at least five additional states are pursuing constitutional carry bills of their own.
