Loveland, CO – This afternoon, the Kentucky House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 150, the Constitutional Carry bill, by a vote of 60-37.
SB 150 already passed out of the State Senate in February, and the bill now heads to the desk of Governor Matt Bevin for final passage.
Governor Bevin has promised to sign SB 150 into law, and has 10 days to do so.
“This is a historic moment for gun owners and law-abiding citizens in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Constitutional Carry restores the gun rights of honest citizens by repealing the unconstitutional fees and burdens surrounding our natural right to bear arms while in public,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.
National Association for Gun Rights field staff have been working on the ground in Kentucky to pass SB 150, including testifying before legislative committees in support of the bill, as well as hand delivering thousands of member petitions in support of Constitutional Carry.
Kentucky’s passage of Constitutional Carry and Gov. Bevin’s promise to sign SB 150 into law will make Kentucky the 3rd state to pass Constitutional Carry in 2019, and the 15th state to enact the law.
“We look forward to Gov. Bevin signing SB 150 into law and further solidifying Kentucky as one of the most pro-gun states in the country.” said Brown.
The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation's second largest pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members and supporters nationwide.
